The Absence http://wrti.org en Melody Gardot Aims For The Space Between Notes http://wrti.org/post/melody-gardot-aims-space-between-notes The other day, I had a conversation with <a href="http://www.npr.org/artists/87997625/melody-gardot">Melody Gardot</a> about space. Not outer space, but the space between notes in her music. These days, there's lots of it.<p>When she began making her new album, <em>The Absence</em>, Gardot says the thing she wanted most was a clean, uncluttered sound — something resembling Brazil's beloved bossa nova from the 1960s. She came up with coy, understated melodies and set them to rhythms that feel as natural as an ocean breeze.
