About the Artist

Melanie Noel (Seattle) received a 2006 GAP to take time to write and complete a sequence of 18-20 poems to be combined with field recordings and instrumentation. Performed with a looping pedal and laboratory field recordings, “the poems will begin from inside the voices of viruses having recurring dreams and explore part of my larger interest in science and medicine…and how the unseen operates in our lives and environment,” says Noel.

Information included above was provided by artist at the time of application.
