Vicki Brown's unique manipulations of sounds derived mainly from the violin have been described as "alluring", "transporting", "cinematic moodscapes". The versatility of her approach to layer and weave sonic geographies and an openness to collaborate and cultivate with others keeps her surrounded by creativity as her music translates mood and pace for time-related projects. She is a member of Tucson's Movement Salon, an ensemble of dancers, writers and musicians who practice and perform compositional improvisation where the only parameters are space and time. Music from her two self-produced critically-acclaimed albums, Winter Garden (2006) and Seas & Trees (2009), accompanied dances choreographed and performed by Pamela Vail at the 2009 Philadelphia Fringe Festival and Jessica Fogel in the University of Michigan's School of Music, Theater & Dance, and is featured in the Academy Award nominated documentary film Gasland (2010). She has been collaborating, composing, recording, touring and performing as a solo artist and with several bands in the US and Europe since 2006. Most recently she plays violin and sings backup vocals with ex-Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds Australian artist Hugo Race & The Fatalists, and Tucson's Amy Rude & Heartbeast and Brian Lopez.
