Kelly Moran - Ultraviolet LPWarp Records
Composer, producer, keyboardist and multi-instrumentalist Kelly Moran made an early name for herself in New York collaborating with dance performance and composing for long-term John Cage collaborator Margaret Leng Tan. It was with the 2017 album Bloodroot that Moran began to reach wider attention. Now, on her Warp Records debut Ultraviolet she continues to interpret these wealth of inspirations into a sound all her own and pulls off a nearly impossible feat: the annihilation of experimental music's imposing, esoteric, über-academic status quo in the name of pure, unbridled intuition, of human joy. Ultraviolet plays to a wide, arresting array of stylistic influences: dazzling inflections of jazz and dream pop, classical composition and black metal, darkness and light, encapsulated in a single, mystifying LP.
