Geraldine McEwan is a classically trained multi-instrumentalist working primarily with voice and violin. Her interest lies in live performance through the exploration of the violin, using it not only as an instrument but also a controller to shift heavy, dense sound textures through electronic machines.
She has worked within a broad range of genres from classical to noise, baroque to rock, and uses digital manipulation and signal processing to colour her own unique sound.
Geraldine has collaborated and performed with various artists such as the programming/music group The CaneToad Orchestra, harsh noise with HYLICS, semi-electronic, free-improvisers the Vultures, baroque violinist Andrew Manze and the English Concert orchestra, burlesque performances with dance and circus acts and has performed in a range of venues including concert halls, jazz clubs, pubs, basements and streets.
Her work in music has seen Geraldine conducting orchestral and choral pieces, instrumental and theoretic tutoring, workshop leading, ensemble coaching, composition and arranging.
