As a composer of ambient electronic pieces and piano underscore, Melissa Slawsky exemplifies her finesse in blending textural, analog synths and global electronica together. While classically trained, her projects adopt a contemporary spin which makes listening to her music a truly, one-of-a-kind experience.
Armed with a variety of instruments including her Kawai CA-95 digital piano, ROLI Seaboard Grand and Arturia Analog MIDI lab to name a few, Melissa’s direction leans towards the sonic qualities of timbre and tone first, and texture second.
Melissa is a maverick open for opportunity – she prides herself on ‘showing’ instead of ‘telling’, and her determination to succeed in the music industry is only rivalled by her undying passion for the art form itself.
