  1. Bird in the Dark #1 Melissa Smith 3:04

“First Fridays” is an Artopia! project encouraging calm, contemplation, and relaxation in the listener. Melissa creates sound portraits while improvising on the piano in near-total darkness. Guests attending the Renditions Music Soundscape Studio are encouraged to bring mats, pillows and eye masks to enhance the stress-relieving effects. Melissa’s improvisations, such as “Bird in the Dark #1”, above, can be enjoyed equally from downloaded tracks, high-quality CD audio recordings, and live “First Friday” settings from October to May.
