Kitty Brazelton is a difficult composer to categorize. She is a rock musician with a doctorate in composition from Columbia University. Her influences range from free jazz improvisation to plainchant to funk. She has written music
for pop singers, dancers, opera librettists, and new music chamber ensembles. Her roles in musical projects have included composer, performer, bandleader, producer, curator, and educator.
Brazelton's music has been featured worldwide by ensembles such as the California E.A.R Unit, twisted tutu, the Manhattan Brass Quintet, and the Absolute Ensemble Orchestra, and her music has been performed at the Lincoln
Center Festival, the Bang on a Can Marathon, the Columbia University Interactive Arts Festival, and the New Music America Festival.
Recent projects include What is it Like to be a Bat? (a digital punk trio), Hildegurls (a 21st-century medieval quartet), and Fireworks, a 4th of July family opera written with librettist Billy Aronson and commissioned by American Opera Projects 1999-2000.
