With a background in art history, Gea Brown approaches to Djing by researching different musical currents in a constant intersection of history and present.

In her sets pioneering electronic music and the American minimalism of the 60's get in dialog with the sonorities of the recent electronic and electroacustic music.

Her last projects are focused on voice in spoken language and try to find a balance between narrative and sound, semantic field and music, into the mixtape format.

Since 2010 Gea Brown has been part of the duo Alpin Folks which is carrying on with an audiovisual project marked by the union of drone and techno music.
