Behind the scenes: the music for Pygmalion

Pygmalion’s music composer Vera Bremerton talks about the original process to create the world of the play.

The city noises for the soundscape were taken from the historical soundscape reproduction of an Edwardian London street archived at the British Sound Library.

Vera Bremerton was born in Italy and trained as a pianist. After moving to London she started composing and singing. She holds a PhD in composition and performance. In her musical practice, Bremerton blends the harmony and polyphony of classical music with the harsh beats and sounds of techno/industrial/avantgarde. She has researched experimental vocalism, using different timbres, effects and a 4-octaves range. She has extensively performed in UK and Europe. Find out all about her work here.

Pygmalion runs at Tower Theatre, London, from 12 to 22 June
