British musician, trumpeter and flugelhorn player Charlotte Keeffe wears her love for free improvisation, jazz and experimental music on her sleeve.
Keeffe believes that music is everywhere and everyone, and refers to her solo Sound Brush project as far from feeling like a 'solo performance'.
Inspired by painters, her trumpet and flugelhorn have become her Sound (paint) Brushes.
In 2022 world renowned trumpeter Dave Douglas invited Charlotte Keeffe to be part of his Festival of New Trumpet Music. Charlotte was delighted to be commissioned to do a piece for this exciting Festival and collaborated with film maker, Omri Dagan, who captured her duetting with the mighty City of London.
"London and the trumpet share unique percussive and vocal qualities. Enriched in history and glazed in overstimulation, the City’s driveness, heaviness and tightness constantly spew out spontaneous unique Fanfares!"
Other Sound Brush performances include; Switzerland's Ear We Are Festival in Biel/Bienne, Yarmonics Festival, Out Front, The Vortex, NoizeMaschin!! Klinker Club, LUME...
Charlotte Keeffe’s music is a wish for creative freedom for ALL!
