EN New York composer/producer/pianist Kelly Moran remembers her eureka moment like it was yesterday. It was a balmy afternoon last summer, down in the woods near her childhood home on Long Island. "I was squatted down in the forest, listening to the sounds of the wind and the wildlife, and all the echoes surrounding me," Moran recalls. "I asked myself: How can I make music that feels like this, natural, connected, and effortless?" At the time of her epiphany, Moran had spent the better part of her career immersed in the painstaking, pedagogical praxis modern composition: a journey that, however personally and creatively rewarding, had come to an impasse. Her only way forward was to bottle up her stream of consciousness and boldly sail beyond her own boundaries. Such are the origins of Ultraviolet, Moran's latest release.

Moran performs a constant balancing act between studied precision and free-form liberation: to experience her music is to shed any semblance of genre, of canon, and indeed, of common sense. Her Bloodroot LP thrilled primarily through feats of "prepared piano": an experimental, grand piano-mangling playstyle that turned an otherwise austere instrument into a vessel of chaotic whimsy. By contrast, Ultraviolet offers dazzling inflections of jazz and dream pop, neoclassical and black metal, darkness and light, all in one mystifying LP.

    Pitchfork says...

    “[Kelly Moran’s] intricately arranged electro-acoustic compositions accomplish the rare feat of making the work of a single individual sound like the artistic output of a veritable creative army”
