Rebecca Bruton

(1989 - )

Rebecca Bruton (MFA) is a Western Canadian composer, song maker and vocalist. Loosely characterizing her work as understated, surrealist folk music, Rebecca often involves sonic ideas that estheticize tuning discrepancies, auditory illusions and other acoustic phenomena alongside of simple and surprising melodic structures. Her compositions have been performed by Quatuor Bozzini (Montréal, CA), Continuum Ensemble (Toronto, CA) and by her own ensembles. As one half of the vocal performance duo Moss Moss Not Moss (with Canadian-Icelandic poet Angela Rawlings), Rebecca has also presented original work at Tectonics Festival Glasgow. With Australian sound artist Alexandra Spence, she co-founded Tidal ~ Signal, a Vancouver-based festival dedicated to women and trans-identifying artists working in experimental music. Rebecca lives in Banff, Alberta.
