Melissa Grey [Future Brown]

Residence: New York, USA

Under the moniker of Future Brown, composer Melissa Grey merges her classical training with a broad palette of retro and cutting-edge technologies, including acoustic instruments, electronic and analog media. In January 2002, the artist/anthropologist Dan Rose commissioned Brown to compose music for Farewell to Earth, a large-scale installation site-specific to the Merwin and Wakeley Galleries at Illinois Wesleyan University. Vertical Terrain (September 2002), the subsequent collaboration between Rose and Brown, was included in the group show “I Want to be Part of the Scenery” at Nexus Gallery in Philadelphia. Grey lives in New York City.
