Kelly Moran has announced a new album. On March 29, the keyboardist and composer will release Moves In the Field via Warp Records. It’s her first new album in six years. Today she’s shared new song “Butterfly Phase.” Check it out below along with a trailer for the album.

Moran said in a statement, “In early 2020, Yamaha loaned me a Disklavier player piano – a special instrument that allows you to record your performance for the piano to play back on its own. I was initially working on a duet for myself and another pianist, but when the pandemic hit, the player piano became my duet partner. I began writing a series of duets for myself and the Disklavier, exploring all the different ways I could utilize this instrument to merge its inhuman capabilities with my own playing. The Disklavier allowed me to record multiple layers of my playing so I could create music on the piano that would require more fingers or greater endurance than I physically have – like chords that had more than 10 notes in them, or chords that were spaced out farther than my hands could stretch. Sometimes I’d record a pattern and then speed it up to play back faster than I could ever physically play. My imagination exploded at all the possibilities this instrument allowed me to create, and these explorations culminated in my new record Moves in the Field.”

Kelly Moran’s last album was 2018’s Ultraviolet.
