Much of her work falls into the category of concert music, written for ensembles ranging from duos and trios to full orchestras, choirs, and wind ensembles. Fulton also writes music that she performs herself, using loops and samples to become a one-person orchestra. Whatever musical genre or instruments Fulton chooses; her music reflects the rhythms and pulses of daily life, and the world around her. In addition to composing, Fulton works as co-artistic director of the experimental vocal collective Rhymes With Opera, a 5-piece vocal/composer ensemble now in their sixth season. She also performs in a variety of Baltimore bands, and teaches music at the Waldorf School of Baltimore, Baltimore School of Rock, and privately.
