Emily Burridge is a virtuoso cellist, whose deft improvisational and composing skills create sublime music, fluidly crossing genres.
“Fascinating and unique” – The Musician.
During a performance, integration of looping technology operated with her feet enables her to multitrack rhythms and harmonies .This process has revolutionised her love of playing the cello resulting in solo and duo performance programs of exciting and innovative new music. Her music reflects her love of our natural environment and in the hands of Emily the cello becomes a voice for her personal experiences as she amalgamates melodies, rhythms and sounds from her field recordings.
