Morgan’s Miniature Masterpiece

A very special long player hit the racks in 1980 called Miniatures, an album of tiny masterpieces created to last 1 minute. The brain child of Morgan Fisher, onetime keyboardist of Mott The Hoople, Miniatures enlisted the talents of a broad range of artists, ranging from the contemporary avant garde elite, improvisers, poets, punks and raconteurs, all rising to the challenge of the minute time slot in their own unique style.

Morgan Fisher’s musical meanderings have found him working with a broad selection of international artists in the roles of composer, arranger and producer. He collaborated with Roedelius of the Krautrock duo Cluster, has penned tunes for Cat Power, Jose Feliciano and worked with Japanese muscians Haruomi Hosono and Yoko Ono.
Fisher’s creative interests have also taken him beyond music. Further developing the techniques of seminal experimental photographer Man Ray and Bauhaus master Moholy-Nagy to produce abstract works which he calls light painting.
