Mieko Shimizu / Jasmine Morris – Nebula 1 & 2

‘Nebula 1 & 2’ is the first collaboration between Mieko Shimizu and Jasmine Morris, commissioned as part of a Not Applicable season of live performances hosted in venues throughout London in 2023.

Musical landscapes formed of arresting string harmonies dissolve into electro-acoustic seas, eventually submerging us into a world of rhythmic electronic currents and ancient memories. As the compositions evolve, we wash up on the shores of what might be distant planets, familiar but uncanny, our senses reawakened to a new reality where inter-planetary and inter-generational forces unite.

The recording captures a unique moment in Mieko and Jasmine’s respective lives and acknowledges a shared passion for electronic music, fostered in part through their relationship as mother and daughter.
