Title: Edifice Complex (& Other Urban Plans)
Product Type: COMPACT DISCS

"Edifice Complex and other urban plans" is a seven-song collection of music that distills land-use concepts into human-size basics. Melanie Hammet's experience with musical theatre is evident in the inventive approach to her subject. "CarTune," for example, is orchestrated with a band of live automobile sounds; the vocals and instruments on every track are layered, surprising, and imaginative. "Edifice Complex" was written during Hammet's artist residency at The Seaside Institute's Escape To Create program. The month-long stay in the "most imitated town in America, (NYTimes 2005)" was the perfect backdrop for creating the music of urban examination. Who ever thought NIMBY was a sing-a-long subject?
