Liz Meredith is a string player, improviser, and composer originally from Baltimore, Maryland. Her music explores many creative facets, from composing instrumental works to making ambient music, song-oriented pieces, graphic scores, and solo improvisations. “Liz Meredith is a gorgeous plunge into a plaintive mood, a place where rising and falling electronic textures and drawn-out viola lines cast soothing shadow plays on the brain”. – Bret McCabe, Baltimore City Paper (2012). Her current creative projects include: The self-titled debut solo album Liz Meredith LP, a collaborative ambient music project with John Somers (brother of Alex Somers), which includes the recently released album The Disposition of Vibrant Forms Part 1, 2, 3, 4, 5 (5 LP set), and her band X|i|O, a group focused on graphic notation, spontaneous composition and visual-acoustic kinetics. In addition to performing her own music, she has premiered new 21st century music by emerging composers. Liz holds degrees from Berklee College of Music (Bachelor’s Degree in String Performance & Film Music), and Mills College (Master’s Degree in Music Composition). She has studied viola performance with Hank Dutt of Kronos Quartet and music composition with Fred Frith. Liz is currently based in Baltimore, Maryland.
Brune [Beth Brown] is a draftswoman, composer, and experimental phonographer who works and practices in Baltimore, MD. Her intricate ink drawings and euphonic processed field recordings share a conceptual common thread of accumulating texture as a means for creating complex systems. These abstract arrangements provide the signifiers needed to understand her personal lexicon of nuance she has been developing throughout her bodies of work.
Since her graduation from MICA, she produced her first album, has begun working on a second under the moniker “Brune”, and won a grant for her experimental sound work. She has played numerous live shows including performances at The Red Room, 2640 Space and the Vigil at MICA. Her visual work is featured in publications including Juxtapoz and Boooom! where her viewers have described her ink drawings as “enveloping”, “nightmarish”, and “seductive.” She plans to attend an interdisciplinary MFA program to further her craft and research.
