Mélodie Melak Fenez’s work questions the place and role of the performer in experimental art. It also investigates the relationship between the individual voice and the great/background melody, the articulation between solitude and community.
Her solo project a.mélodie consists of self-made synthesizers and electronic devices that are hooked up to an array of plants. The plants shape the sound of each oscillator. Because of physiological reactions, mainly due to their defense system, the plants modulate the frequency they produce, creating an alive and ever morphing sound. On stage, a.melodie composes with the sounds produced and modulated live by the plants.
