Music is Music: Melody Parker

Melody Parker Andria Lo
15min 30sec : Music is Music: Melody Parker

Melody Parker loves to dance. When she wrote the music for her album "Archipelago," she didn't start with a catchy tune, or harmonies, or rhythm. She started with movement. On this episode of Music is Music, Melody Parker tells us all about her love of dance and movement. And we'll hear about the acoustic worlds she creates, both in her music and elsewhere.

Have a listen, and hear the music that Parker describes as "chamber pop," chamber music with a catchy, pop feel. To find out more about Melody Parker, head over to her website.

Music is Music is supported in part by an award from the National Endowment for the Arts.
