Todd Lent earned a B.A. in Music Theory/History, and an M.M. in Music Composition from The Crane School of Music in Potsdam, NY in 2002. Trained in classical guitar, he is a multi-instrumentalist who incorporates influences and elements from a diverse range of global musical genres into his writing and performance.
Immediately after college, Todd scored or contributed music to a handful of independent films. He has taught private guitar lessons since 1999, and has been prolifically recording solo albums since 2007 under the name Immara. His 15th full-length album was released in October, 2016.
In 2014 he met Elise Kermani, and has since collaborated with her on three projects. He first scored her short films “Iphigenia 2.0” and “Book of Change”, both of which would eventually be incorporated into her multi-media theater piece Iphigenia: Book of Change. And then in 2016, he contributed music to Vicky Shick’s dance piece Another Spell to be reworked and manipulated live by Elise.
In December, 2015, his free-jazz inspired recording “Fire Rites” was selected for inclusion on an international compilation album to raise funds for Phas.e, a London-based platform dedicated to highlighting the undercurrents of sonic studies.
Todd was hired by MiShinnah Productions in 2014.
