COURTNEY BROWN
with ALTAIRA

ALTAIRA
James Borchers - percussion, hyperkalimba
Christian Gentry - chordophones, boomboxes
Peter McMurray - saxophone, whistles, ocarina
Roth Michaels - laptop, melodica, miscellany

Formed in Waltham, MA, Altaira is a group of composer-performers interested in improvisation and electronic music. We perform both our own music and improvisational/aleatoric/intuitive "repertoire" by other composers from the past 60-odd years. Recent performances include a memorial concert series of intuitve music by Karlheinz Stockhausen and a collaborative performance with musicians from Queens College.
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, and more. In 2008, her work "Places in Time become Magnetic" was selected for inclusion in the Vox Novus 60x60 project. Additionally, she has received mention in the Boston Globe and NHPR. She currently resides in Brooklyn, New York.
