Brouk self-released a number of recordings on cassette via her own label, Hummingbird Productions. Brouk's first release, Healing Music, featured the flute of American composer Maggi Payne. Her 1981 recording, Sounds of the Sea, included field recordings of nature sounds, vocals, and manipulated electronic and acoustic instruments. Brouk's music was known in New Age Music circles but did not receive a great deal of mainstream recognition. In 2016, a collection of archival recordings and selections from cassette releases, Hearing Music, was released by The Numero Group. In 1985, Brouk stopped composing and recording music after moving to San Diego, California, where she married and gave birth to a son, and took up the practice of transcendental meditation.
