Announcing Michelle Moeller - 'Late Morning'

AKP Recordings is proud to announce our next full-length release, Late Morning from Michelle Moeller out April 5th.

The first single “Leafless” is out now.


Listen & pre-order

Playful, lyrical, and exploratory, Michelle Moeller weaves piano, custom effects, and computer synthesis into intricate electroacoustic systems that define the enchanting compositions on Late Morning. Her musical practice is ever evolving, guided by restless curiosity and natural resistance to a singular approach. With one foot firmly planted in composition and the other in improvisation, Late Morning showcases a delicate balance between structure and spontaneity.


“Titled as an affectionate homage to slow movers and late bloomers, 𝘓𝘢𝘵𝘦 𝘔𝘰𝘳𝘯𝘪𝘯𝘨 is a culmination of years spent integrating disparate aspects of my musical practice: an attraction to otherworldly digital sound with an enduring melodic sensibility rooted in my classical piano training. Much of this process unfolded at Mills College, where I studied Max MSP with computer music legend John Bischoff. Developing synthesis techniques and effects to accompany and respond to the piano, I wholly dedicated myself to creating lively electroacoustic systems, seeking modes of interactivity that felt both strange and natural, surprising and inevitable. While piano centric at its core, 𝘓𝘢𝘵𝘦 𝘔𝘰𝘳𝘯𝘪𝘯𝘨 is an album that aims to occupy a distinct and personal place on the spectrum of experimental music.”
