There are three Melody Easels, each designed to accomodate one player and two observers. Seated at a table-like structure, one plays the Melody Easel with the touch of a finger, creating a feeling of subtle articulation and phrasing usually associated with single-line melodic instruments like the violin or saxophone. The movement and touch of the finger as it travels across a specially designed transparent surface not only creates music -- melodic variations and timbral filigrees based on the voice of mezzo-soprano Lorraine Hunt -- but also a beautiful graphic trace.
