Mary's musical journey has been an exploration of song, ensemble and collaboration from solo performances, bands, recording, and mass voice productions.
Mary is also an established community musician with a love of sharing musical experiences".
In 2021 Mary Completed a Masters in Creative Music Production at the University of Hertfordshire. This has lead to a new direction in experimenting with binaural sound design for film and installation work. The first immersive film installation, "A Sound Investment" and the second, supported by Arts Council funding "The Story Of Things", an immersive interactive installation combining automata and sound design.
Alongside her new work Mary continues to facilitate acapella singing groups. She is an enthusiastic advocate of the benefits of singing for confidence, self expression and the heightened self esteem that can be achieved through music creativity, playfulness and song.
The addition of the well researched physical benefits to health and wellbeing makes singing so good for everyone. Specialising in Acapella singing she uses material from folk traditions from around the world. Also composing her own solo material and for choirs and community theatre.
The ethos that she works with is that music and singing is for everyone regardless of age or ability and you don’t have to read music or be highly skilled. Just willing!
Mary has performed at festivals cross the Uk including Glastonbury and Wicker-man. She composes for community theatre projects and works with arts organisations such as Snape Music, Suffolk Art Link and Creative Arts East.
