Blurring distinctions between acoustic music and electronic music, Kelly Moran’s debut record ‘Bloodroot’ unearths the venerable prepared piano as a proto-avant-garde ancestor of today’s electronic music, splitting off shards of shimmering bell and bow tones that lay hidden as latent possibilities within the strings. Moran “approaches the altered instrument like Aphex Twin, breaking down the technique's additions into strange, frenetically melodic patterns.” (NPR) Moran takes the prepared piano on an evocative journey that calls up the ghosts of a supernatural gamelan and makes them dance in a land neighboring John Cage’s imaginary landscapes. By turning the instrument inside out, she celebrates the piano and sound itself down to the cellular level.
