In episode 3, you’ll hear the track “Replying To Unaddressed Letters.” “I recorded this track as a response to my friend Matthias Gründig’s EP “Letters To”. On the EP he recorded three pieces, each of which he called “Unaddressed Letters”. I responded to these unaddressed letters.”

With their new album ATOLLS, Malo Moray + His Inflatable Knee release an album for fans of Brian Eno, Sunn O))), Swans, Soundwalk Collective and all adventurous music that doesn’t fit into any pigeonhole. ATOLLS are large rings of islands connected underwater, enclosing a fertile, thriving lagoon. For three years, Malo Moray and his collective have improvised together across space and time, invisibly connected by music, capturing an amazing state of flow and connection – atolls in music. ATOLLS beautifully proves that connection and flow are not physical states, but hidden energetic processes that occur whenever people open their hearts and minds to resonate with each other. Grammy award winner Marc Urselli (Lou Reed, Laurie Anderson) spent three years producing the digitally mediated intimate sessions into a dazzling cosmos of sound between ambient, krautrock, neo-classical and experimental jazz.
The Leipzig-based composer, double bassist and improviser Malo Moray has assembled his Inflatable Knee for improvisations into various trios to sextets that never met in physical space. All pieces were recorded layer by layer one after the other – each* musician* by himself – always picking up the first impulse in the encounter with the music. You can feel how the musicians throw off any bias, any material ballast in this process. Malo Moray + His Inflatable Knee vividly demonstrate how music resonates people across space and time. They play intensely and completely liberated.
