Industry Arts
Occupation composer/performer
Location Buenos Aires, Argentina
Introduction Courtney Brown has long harbored aspirations of becoming an Edward Gorey heroine, but her attempts have thus far been foiled. In lieu of her unlikely but tragic demise, she makes strange dark music and fiddles with electronics. Her solo act, Every Night I Lose Control, explores the danger of performance and ultimately exposes the vulnerabilities of its performer. Her works are heavily influenced by tango, Weimar cabaret, flamenco, and early goth rock, and often cross into performance art. She has performed her solo cabaret act up and down the east coast, including New York, Boston, Providence, Baltimore, and Washington, DC. Her compositions have been featured in the Chosen Vale Trumpet Seminar, the Festival of New Musics, the Boston CyberArts Festival, SEAMUS, Vox Novus 60x60, NYCEAMF, Juddertone Dance 2009, and more.
