BIBA: Beauty in Black Artistry

BIBA: Beauty in Black Artistry

Today's BIBA is a feature of an incredibly gifted, young composer: Brittany J. Green! Ms. Green's music and research includes technological interests and creating musical spaces that focus on the "intersection between sound, movement, and text." Her work has been presented at the 2019 SCI National Conference, NYCEMF, the BGSU Graduate Conference, the West Fork New Music Festival, the Darkwater Women in Music Festival, and the Intersection@Art and Science Symposium at East Carolina University, among others. Ms. Green has recently announced she will be pursuing a PhD in Composition at Duke University this fall! Congratulations on this recent announcement and best wishes!!

“Brittany J. Green turned to a more personal past in her Portraits for solo piano (2017). Based on five of her grandmother’s unpublished poems, her writing is cinematic in the best sense: gestural, minimal yet detailed, but packing an emotional wallop, especially under Parker’s sympathetic fingers. (The standout movement is “L’homme durci,” a searing, minute-long maelstrom.)” – Hannah Edgar

The East Carolinian

Feel Like This' is a mixed media piece realized in Pro Tools. The source material for this piece comes from a speech given by a 9-year-old Charlotte native, Zianna Oliphant in response to police brutality. Utilizing filtering, distortion and phasing, this piece conveys the struggles and changes experienced when combating injustice through the intermingling and transformation of timbres.
