News: Melanie Clifford appointed as Artistic Director at Drake Music

Melanie Clifford appointed as Artistic Director at Drake Music
 
Drake Music is delighted to announce that Melanie Clifford has joined the organisation as its new artistic director.
 
Melanie is an artist & musician who works in translation between film, sound, drawing, broadcast, sculpture and site to think about psychological relationships to urban space: intimacy, distance, estrangement; the extremes of claustrophobia - agoraphobia; the experience of being held in and between registers.
 
Melanie’s work includes constructing visual scores for variable sound interpretation, soliciting sensitivity to detail, to minor fluctuations and structural disintegrity. She works with sound and its location: performing site-specific sound pieces and recording found sounds and her own slight interventions, to be edited, reconstructed and broadcast. She is particularly interested in the complex interaction of this work with existing, fluctuating environments; consequent unpredictability; collaboration and the irreducibility of individual perspective; connection and its absence.
 
Her work is exhibited and broadcast internationally, and she co-produces a weekly live improvisational radio test transmission for Resonance 104.4FM, London. In tandem with her work at Drake Music, she is about to take up an artist’s residency at the Acme Fire Station in east London.
 
Melanie feels intensely ambitious for Drake Music’s future:
 
“My experience of Drake Music is of an excitingly bold, passionate and inspiring group of people and associates, who are not content with the ‘basket weaving’ approach to the relationship between music, arts and disability. Drake Music has the desire and creative capacity to develop something extraordinary - and is doing so because the potential consequences for contemporary art and music practice of an inclusive artistic and musical field are too exciting to ignore. By facilitating the creative development of people with a range of abilities and musical experience, Drake Music and its partners, such as Furtherfield.org, are taking part in an important and radical artistic project.”
 
This new role is funded by the Paul Hamlyn Foundation.
