My name is Mel, and I am a composer and multi-era multi-instrumentalist who loves to write new music for historical instruments, as well as play music from many time periods and countries. I say that I like to "travel through time" by way of the music I play and write: music from the Trecento, Ars Subtilior to modern, rock, jazz, blues, world folk (esp. Balkan); on and for somewhat "forgotten" instruments like the vihuella, curtal, chest organ, or shruti, in addition to recorder, harpsichord and modern orchestral instruments.
