Georgina Brett : Non Sense

We are delighted to share news of the wonderful new double album from Georgina Brett.  Georgina’s music is created using her voice and pedals, creating instant choirs 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. Her latest album is a double album of vocal works with no lyrics, highlighting the voice as an instrument and as a vehicle for emotional expression.

I have been focusing on vocal sound collages for a while now, and have called it ‘Non Sense’ for many reasons. The word “nonsense”, in terms of language, talks of no verbal sense, no meaning conveyed. Language needs context, structure and grammar in order to function. These albums are “non sense” from a language point of view. However, there is so much more to communication than language, and ‘hear/here’ I attempt to make pure emotional musical matrices which each have a particular flavour.

The album also endeavours to show the power of the voice as an instrument. The songs give the listener a ‘Vocal Bath’. You get the freedom to ‘use’ each individual track as concentration music, or for meditation or as a means to sleep. Think whatever you like, there is no narrative. However…. the development of the notes and chords and rhythm is pretty compelling, so follow in the musical journey and switch off your own words, it’s relaxing.

“Your mind is captured by [this sound healing] sound, there is so much to be busy with, your brain is thirsty for things, if you give food to the mind somehow it is quiet, like if you give a dog a bone. allowing the other dimensions of the mind such as self-awareness finally to have space and ‘let go’. ” Monika Soundgate in reference to Soundgate sound healing.

Non Sense A and B were made in the hope that they can afford a similar space for the listener.. a space of healing. The mind is often described to be like a restless and curious monkey (Taoism), it tries to find complication. Hopefully what you will find with this album, is gentle complication in sound, coupled with beauty and a general sense of reliability.
