Melanie Chilianis

The piece MCVox by Melanie Chilianis was initially part of Danish artist Michael Chang’s collaborative exhibition Fragments (Arnot Art Museum, New York State, April 2011). It uses vocal sources from Melanie Chilianis and Michael Chang in various degrees of intelligibility and duration. It was made during a particularly bad phase of chronic illness (migraine and epileptic seizures), when everyday communication was often difficult and visual and aural perceptions were distorted.
