Kelly Moran Unveils New Single ‘Sodalis (II)’

    Kelly Moran has put out a new single, ‘Sodalis (II)’, from her forthcoming LP Moves in the Field. It’s a new version of her 2020 song ‘Sodalis’, which appeared on the Field Works Ultrasonic collection released by Temporary Residence, reimagined with the Yamaha Disklavier. It arrives alongside a live performance video directed by Yuan Liu with creative director Katharine Antoun. Check it out below.

    “Initially written as a track for prepared piano, ‘Sodalis’ has evolved into a lush, tender duet for myself and the player-piano,” Moran explained in a statement. “To create this version, I recorded a solo arrangement of the piece on the player-piano, and then orchestrated harmonies and patterns that interlock with my parts and dance around the entire range of the piano. Composing this piece was an exploration in making the piano sound as rich, resonant, and emotive as possible. It was the first arrangement I made of my music for player-piano, and the creative possibilities of the process made me realize this was the right direction for my album.”

    Moves in the Field will be released on March 29 via Warp.
