Kirsten Morrison arrives on Micro Spiral with a debut album like no other! By day, this talented individual creates scores for film and TV programmes including the BBC’s ‘Plantagenets’, writes and performs her own operas, supplies music for commercials and has toured Europe with the Lene Lovich Band. However, none of those achievements will prepare you for the solo artist material that is ‘Proserpine’s Gold’!

Across twelve sublime tracks, we are taken on a highly original, diverse and eclectic journey. Kirsten delivers incredible operatic soprano vocals over tracks that take in influences from classical, medieval, folk, steampunk, theatrical and soundtrack styles. Genres are fused to create fresh soundscapes full of infectious melodies.

All of the songs on this long player are full of colour and are highly vivid as they paint evocative stories. Inspiration for many of these works came from the great poets such as Edgar Allan Poe, Blake, Rossetti, Rimbaud and Taylor Coleridge. Kirsten Morrison breathes new life into these literary gems by transforming them into epic avant-pop adventures.

‘She Walks In Beauty’ kicks off the album as Byron’s poem is morphed into a beautiful harp-fuelled, Goldfrapp-esque excursion. ‘Still Do You Leave Me’ uses piano-propulsion and climactic vocals to build and build. Live favourite ‘Marie Antoinette’ is an energetic four-to-the-floor baroque style romp with epic strings and a legendary tale. Edgar Allan Poe’s ‘Dream Within A Dream’ is a more serene and subtle number with a twinkling fairy-tale feel. ‘Siren Song’ takes us on an infectious gypsy-folk seashore adventure that will get you swaying. ‘Solar Flare’ closes affairs by launching into orbit for an atmospheric, experimental number for fans of science fiction!

‘A gorgeous track.’ ‘Really special.’ ‘Very much one to watch.’
– Lauren Laverne, BBC6 Music.

Kirsten Morrison album folder

24/05/15

Having released experimental electronica, future-soul, downtempo-folk and the first ever compilation of Sequential Music, we are now very pleased to announce our latest signing….. Kirsten Morrison!

By day, this talented individual creates scores for film and TV programmes including the BBC’s ‘Plantagenets’, writes and performs operas, supplies music for commercials and is a member of punk legend, Lena Lovich’s band.

However, the solo material from this artist combines incredible operatic soprano vocals over tracks that take in influences from classical, medieval, folk, steampunk, theatrical and soundtrack styles. Inspiration for many of these works came from the great poets such as Edgar Allan Poe, Blake, Rossetti, Rimbaud and Taylor Coleridge. Kirsten Morrison breathes new life into these literary gems by transforming them into epic avant-pop adventures.

This summer, Micro Spiral will be releasing Kirsten’s debut single and album. More details to follow….

Plus, you can see Kirsten Morrison perform tracks from her forthcoming album live at the Islington Assembly Hall on Sat 6th June alongside Lene Lovich Band: http://www.ticketmaster.co.uk/lene-lovich-band-london-06-06-2015/event/1F004D49888D1EE4

Out today! – ‘Sequential Music: An Alternative Approach For Experimental Minds’

Out today on CD / Digital Download / Stream

Sequential Music (sɪˈkwɛnʃ(ə)l ˈmjuːzɪk / noun)
‘A musical composition where the instruments are played one after the other in a serial fashion.’

Back in 2011, Edward De Bono’s book ‘Po’ and Steve Spacek’s album ‘Black Pocket’, inspired the experimental musician, Klis, to create a new and alternative method for writing songs. This vision
gave rise to the limited two track ‘Sequential Music EP’. A copy arrived at Micro Spiral HQ and it intrigued us. We were not aware of anything like it previously, so we wanted to hear more…..

Now in 2015, we present the next chapter. Klis has invited his favourite underground artists to produce tracks using the technique. The results transcend genre, challenge the listener and
showcase an exciting new scene….

BBC6 Music Radio support from Gideon Coe

It is a wild and over used claim, but we guarantee that you have not heard anything quite like Sequential Music!

Support from Gideon Coe on BBC 6 Music.

Track previews:

01. Delta – ‘What’ (Hospital / Reinforced / Microdot) ‐ twisted psychedelics with drum & bass influences.

02. Delicasession – ‘Never Again’ (Delica / Northern Star) ‐ a welcome return from this production outfit with a slice of experimental and eerie electronica.

03. Kin;Aesthetic – ‘Seqret Sequence’ [Alpha Version] (Kin‐Aesthetic Recordings) ‐ a follow up to his killer Pilote remix. An atmospheric, dubbed out joint that uses sidechain production techniques in an innovative manner.

04.The Unknown Stuntman feat. Clemency Jones – ‘I’m Leavin’ (Sea Quenchin’ Blues)’ (Toothless) ‐ a dose of the blues alongside abstract electronics.

05. Delicasession – ‘Particle 4’ (Delica / Northern Star) ‐ a hypnotic roller with a menacing bassline and haunting bells.

06. Klis – ‘Wubwub’ – taken from the initial ‘Sequential Music’ EP ‐ this is a minimal, rhythmic, sub‐bass cut on a hip-hop tip.

07. Freethos – ‘Get Radikal’ [Sliced‐N‐Diced Dub] (Allowance) ‐ a breakbeat induced rave number to shake the dancefloor with.

08. Klis – ‘Blipper’ – the originator reissues the first ever ‘Sequential Music’ track ‘Blipper’ ‐ a funky beats and bleeps affair.

09. Glass Ark Maniac – ‘Helium Baboon’ ‐ a crazy type of ‘new world music’! His sample heavy track contains elements of ambience, African choirs, trance, Celtic harp, drum & bass, tribal drumming and electronica – and all in under three minutes!

10. Scaling As Karma – ‘Igor’s Jelly Castle’ – closes affairs with its ‘multiple solos’ approach to the composition method. Her resulting track is a melodic ambient journey across the stereoscope which contains a spoken message from a Bulgarian space institute researcher…
