Kelly Moran

Sail into uncharted musical waters with genre-defying composer and pianist Kelly Moran, performing her free-form, ambient Warp Records debut, Ultraviolet.

The follow-up to 2017’s John Cage-influenced Bloodroot, Moran’s self-produced new album plays to a wider array of influences: dazzling inflections of jazz and dream pop, neo-classical and black metal, darkness and light. While continuing to use prepared piano, the classically trained artist is moving in a new, more intuitive direction, creating lush soundscapes using layers of synths and electronic textures.

The result of an epiphany that inspired Moran to break down her musical boundaries, Ultraviolet seeks to annihilate experimental music’s imposing image in the name of pure, unbridled intuition and human joy.

Support comes from London-based singer, songwriter, composer and cellist Lucinda Chua.

Bloodroot received glowing reviews from publications including The New York Times, Rolling Stone and Pitchfork.

The album attracted the attention of Mercury Prize-nominated producer Daniel Lopatin – aka Oneohtrix Point Never – who enlisted Moran for his global Age Of tour.
