Described as “cinematic in the best sense” and “searing” (Chicago Classical Review), Brittany J. Green’s (b. 1991) music is centered around facilitating collaborative, intimate musical spaces that ignite visceral responses. The intersection between sound, movement, and text serves as the focal point of these musical spaces, often questioning and redefining the relationships between these three elements.
Her research and creative interests include mapping aural gestures to gestural recognition technology and exploring virtual reality platforms as a tool for experiencing immersive, intimate musical moments. Her music has been featured at the 2019 SCI National Conference, NYCEMF, BGSU Graduate Conference, and the West Fork New Music Festival. She has presented research at the North Carolina Music Educators Association Conference, East Carolina University’s Research and Creative Arts Week, Darkwater Women in Music Festival, and the Intersection@ Art and Science Symposium.
Brittany is currently in residency at Wahl-Coates School of the Arts where she facilitates the Young Composers Project. A collaboration between East Carolina University and Pitt County Schools, the Young Composers Project provides students with the opportunity to compose original works in small groups, synthesizing elementary music theory, performance skills, and critical and creative thinking. The program also offers an introductory coding course where students explore Max/MSP and Scratch in collaboration with Leap Motion, and midi controllers.
Brittany holds a BM in Music Education from the University of North Carolina at Pembroke and a MM in Music Composition and Theory from East Carolina University. She is a member of Pi Kappa Lambda Music Honors Society, Sigma Alpha Iota, and Society of Composers. She will begin doctoral studies at Duke University as a Deans Graduate Fellow in Fall 2019.
