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 distracted world.
Georgina’s music adheres to some avant-garde principles using harmonious parameters, instead of the more dissonant style of it’s post WWII exponents. Georgina’s music is also gradually becoming a great vehicle for more experimental work, delving into expressive work which plays with the rich world of the media, politics, history, using matrices, semiotics and phonetics. http://georginabrett.co.uk
Electric Elizabeth was born on November 1st 2015 when the Noisevember project started that year. They’ve had fun learning how to investigate sounds using audacity and currently investigating the sounds hiding in a metal bucket via contact microphones and the cheapest space echo delay they could find. This has been described as sounding like being on a haunted boat.
Harmergeddon have been collaborating since 2007 on a variety of mixed media art works and officially formed Harmergeddon in 2010. From the unwanted, unheard and unseen they create instruments, performances, sound pieces, installations and videos.
Their work resounds around atmospheric and meditative soundscapes, forming kinetic pulses, drifting textures and undulating drones. This is often set to highly manipulated visuals and performance. Their live improvisations focus on the serendipitous working with live electronics, obsolete consumer electronic devices and the drifting periphery.
