Brittany J. Green

Brittany J. Green (b. 1991) is a North Carolina-based composer, creative, and educator. Described as “cinematic in the best sense” and “searing” (Chicago Classical Review), Brittany’s music is centered around facilitating collaborative, intimate musical spaces that ignite visceral responses. The intersection between sound, movement, and text serves as the focal point of these musical spaces, often questioning and redefining the relationships between these three elements. Her research and creative interests include mapping aural gestures to gestural recognition technology and exploring virtual reality platforms as a tool for experiencing immersive, intimate musical moments. Her music has been featured at concerts and festivals throughout the United States, including the Society of Composers National Conference, New York City Electronic Music Festival, SPLICE Institute, the West Fork New Music Festival, and Electroacoustic Barn Dance Festival. She has presented research at the North Carolina Music Educators Association Conference, East Carolina University’s Research and Creative Arts Week, Darkwater Women in Music Festival, and the Intersection@ Art and Science Symposium. From 2018-2019, Brittany served as composer-in-residence for the PCS/ECU Young Composers Project. Current projects include commissions from JACK Quartet as an inaugural member of JACK Studio Artists, Margins Guitar Collective, Kate Alexandra, and a collaboration with the Oasi Trio.  Brittany holds a BM in Music Education from the University of North Carolina at Pembroke and a MM in Music Composition and Theory from East Carolina University. She is currently in residence at Duke University, pursuing a Ph.D in Music Composition as a Deans Graduate Fellow. Brittany is a member of Pi Kappa Lambda and Society of Composers, Inc., where she serves as the national student representative. To learn more about Brittany and her work, visit

Intersections is a concept piece representative of the finite yet infinite nature of moments where paths are crossed. The piece has not set beginning or ending, just a cycle of intersected lines to be interpreted at the performers will.
Portraits for piano
Portraits for piano is a five movement work based on a series of poems. This recording of the work's world premiere features pianist Brandon Banks at the AJ Fletcher Recital Hall.
