Andrea J. Chia

Andrea Chia was born and raised in Singapore. Ever since her move to Los Angeles at 16, she has immersed herself into the art, music and film subcultures. At 30, her diverse experience includes film, photography, music composition and sound design. She has done the music and sound for various independent short films, and her photography has been featured in art shows in Los Angeles. Her most monumental project to date is producing Keepintime. Spanning over 2 years, she produced the film Keepintime: A Live Recording. Based off the documentary Keepintime: Talking Drums and Whispering Vinyl, this film brought together music greats from two different worlds for a live, unrehearsed jam session between yesterday's beat makers, like Paul Humphrey and James Gadson, and today's beat jugglers, including Babu, J.Rocc and Cut Chemist. The film was released in the Spring of 2005 on DVD, alongside a CD of remixes by various artists such as DJ Shadow, King Britt, and Cut Chemist. She also produced the film Brazilintime: Batucada Com Discos which was shot in Brazil with the LA-based DJs and drummers of Keepintime, as well as with Madlib, Derf Reklaw, Mamao of Azymuth and Joao Parahyba of Trio Mocoto. This highly-anticipated feature-length documentary has a tentative release of Summer 2005. She has given birth to her new definition of "the meaning of life," Quin Henry-Chia, and he is the inspiration of many more works to come.
