Georgina Brett’s music is created using her voice and effects pedals, creating instant choirs of sound, often in an hypnotic style.
The point of this music is not only to captivate with extraordinary timing and melodic style but also to help the listener to relax, in our ever-increasingly fast world.
“Georgina’s live-looping, purely vocal music is made to delight, soothe, challenge and shock. She makes it all live, without a computer, with only basic guitar pedals… the sound of evolving instant choirs. From Palestrina to Ligeti from Steve Reich to something other worldly….”
“Sun blind. A vast white arc of light that covers and exposes. Stone and skin are turned translucent. The soul of the place is exposed, burnt wide open by the screaming light, and we walk out into this. We step, with skin-burning steps, across crackling stone.”

The performance will be accompanied by a film created especially for the evening

we make sounds
sometimes it’s called music
other times we take photos and collect things
we like climbing trees and eating black gateau in the forest
Moving beyond borders and boundaries, I am choreographer, movement director and performer in life, art and the imagination.
Stories and saying ‘yes’ to the imagination motivate and move me.
Hopefully those around me too.
