About the album


Remixes by Monsieur Morphée, YesKing, Ruaidhri Mannion, Gabriel Prokofiev and more... 

Uniquely charting the fine-line between improvisation and composed music, the Mercury Quartet comprises four rising stars of the UK’s contemporary music scene.
The Mercury Quartet represent a very exciting new direction in contemporary music. All their compositions are purely improvised (or perhaps we should say live-composed) and yet do not fall into any of the clichés normally associated with free-improv, or improvised Jazz and Classical, in doing so, firmly buckling erstwhile prejudices against free-improvisation as amateurish self- indulgence.

Their work is stunningly musical and imaginative, frequently giving the impression of being carefully composed scores; yet it also has an energy and spirit, which all too often contemporary classical scores are never able to achieve.
