She will be performing music from her acclaimed double CD production ‘Out of the Blue & Into the Amazon’
‘Out of the Blue’ is a series of solo pieces for the cello composed by Emily and in performance she utilises looping pedals to recreate them in a live setting.
“Into the Amazon” in this production she has created a backing track of her own field recordings of the Brazilian rain forest and the Xavante Indians singing traditional songs and prayers. She combines these with her own musical compositions and takes the audience on a musical adventure from dawn to dusk in an Amazonian village with the performance enhanced by projected images.
She will also relate some of her adventures off the beaten track and how through her ‘Earth Songs’ performance at the first Earth Summit in Brazil in 1992 she was then invited to stay with a chief and his family in a Xavante village in the Mato Grosso of Brazil. Resulting in her founding a registered charity and with periodic visits over a period of four years worked together with the tribal community to design and build a small health centre which twenty years on continues to provide basic health care to isolated communities.

Emily Burridge is a virtuoso cellist, whose deft improvisational and composing skills create sublime music, fluidly crossing genres.
In her hands the cello becomes a voice for her personal experiences, her emotions, and her thoughts as she amalgamates in her productions melodies, rhythms and sounds from her field recordings.
Her life in music over a twentyfive year period embraces many aspects of being a professional musician including composer, producer, and performer with both solo & collaborative productions, session musician – studio and on line. She also gives private cello tuition.
As a cellist and composer Emily has adopted an innovative approach to recreating her harmonious pieces in concert and employs the use of sampling and looping pedals originally designed for guitar.
Review “Her performance is nothing short of inspirational. Clever use of technology allows her to create multi-tracked pieces in a live setting . A consummate musician, she also has a wonderful ability to communicate with her audience, rendering the whole performance as intimate as it is accomplished”….
