Genevieve Murphy:

I Don't Want To Be An Individual All On My Own

For me to fear you, you must grant to be just, for in less than a moment you tread me to dust...

From an early age, composer and performer Genevieve Murphy developed a fascination for psychology and how people create emotional bonds. Through her carefully composed works she brings to our awareness how we behave and respond. I Don’t Want To Be An Individual All On My Own is a search for real connection in an individualized world. Balancing between fear and curiosity for the unknown, Genevieve investigates the power of empathy by reflecting on an ordinary birthday party from her youth. Telling the story through a sonic narrative of pop, spoken word and sound sculptures, she invites you to listen to the soundscape of her mind.
