Coral Morphologic and Nick León have collaborated on a new album.

Coral Morphologic is the Miami duo of marine biologist Colin Foord and musician J.D. McKay. Since 2007, they have used multimedia projects to generate environmental awareness of marine biodiversity.

Nick León is a linchpin of South Florida’s contemporary leftfield electronic scene, with releases for Tra Tra Trax, Future Times, and N.A.A.F.I.

As an album, Projections of a Coral City delivers five news tracks. “The tones are watery, the mood elegiac, the colors a washed-out pastel,” we’re told.

You might detect resonances with other aquatically minded works: Jürgen Müller’s Science of the Sea and Dr. Roger Payne’s Songs of the Humpback Whale.

But ultimately Projections of a Coral City creates the impression of a world unto itself—”a hauntingly beautiful space at the meeting point between sorrow and hope,” we’re told.

The album will land on Balmat, the label of Albert Salinas and Philip Sherburne, two friends living in Cardedeu, Catalonia, and on the Balearic island of Menorca. Balmat grew out of Lapsus Radio, a weekly show born almost 10 years ago. Its mission is “to foster new ideas, expand upon personal obsessions, and put enveloping sounds out into the world.”
