Brittany Green

Described by Chicago Classical Review as “cinematic in the best sense” and “searing,” Brittany J. Green’s 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 elements. Green’s music has been featured at New York City Electronic Music Festival, SPLICE Institute, Chicago Impromptu Fest, and West Fork New Music Festival. Recent work includes collaborations with Elizabeth A. Baker, Crossing Borders Music, the Margins Guitar Collective, and a residency with the Young Composers Project.

Green will begin doctoral studies as a Dean’s Graduate Fellow at Duke University in fall 2019 and holds degrees from the University of North Carolina at Pembroke and East Carolina University.
