Hi, it’s Melinda here, and Lightbound is my musical project. I live in Melbourne, Australia, and I write contemplative instrumental music that captures a narrative in its structure, perfect for quiet moments of pondering. My favourite way to listen is in the dark, especially on a rainy night. Hopefully you’ll find a track to capture your mood right now!
I started music lessons when I was six, with piano and recorder, and then flute, which I took all the way with a Bachelor of music. I also love painting and often paint the music I’m listening to - check out my Jazz Lines series at www.soakstudio.com or my #100daysofmusicalsketches or #100daysofmusicalcolourpalettes on Instagram. You can see lots of examples in the gallery :)
Bloom was my first album release, and its title refers to a collection of jellyfish. The title track captures the movement of their bodies in their watery home, with other ocean inspired tracks following.
I’ve recently released a self-titled second album, Lightbound. Full of haunting melodies and reflecitve motifs around a core of piano and flute, its a collection of journey tracks around the theme of Light.
I'm currently working on my third album, inspired by thoughts of gardens and growing, and the micro-life that's happening all around us, unseen.
I'd love your support by downloading the album and accompanying album guide, Stories of Sound. If you prefer to stream your music, you can find me on Spotify and Apple as Lightbound.
