Amorphous Sounds is a London based independent label that has grown out of Deep Throat Choir and pushes the outer limits of the human voice. It describes the collaborative and porous practices of the artists making work in the choir, and gives name to an already existing collective of music makers from a wide-range of disciplines. It is a statement of intent for future cross-stitched imaginings, both within and outside the choir. The label is founded by Luisa Gerstein and Anika Mottershaw.

Laura Groves is an artist and producer born in West Yorkshire and based in South London. As a multi-instrumentalist and songwriter, she explores themes of inner worlds, healing, connection, and imagined environments and real-life surroundings, mixing traditional songwriting with synthesised sounds and textural electronic layering.

Following on from her work as Blue Roses on XL Recordings, Laura has released two EPs under her own name on DEEK Records, created with long-time collaborator Bullion, and in 2020 released the EP A Private Road on Bella Union.

Along with her solo work and three-piece band, Nautic, Laura has built a reputation as a sought after collaborator for the likes of Darkstar, Wilma Archer, Sampha, Westerman, The Paul Institute, Bat for Lashes, and Hannah Peel. Delving into the art of soundtracks, Laura scored the silent film Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde at the BFI and Latitude Festival, along with creating her own moving image work to accompany her music.

Fran Lobo is a vocalist, producer and composer from North East London via India. She is interested in exploring the human voice, classic songwriting and experimental production with a passion for personal and intimate storytelling.

Her work has been shown at the V&A, RA, Southbank Centre and Somerset House and has been acclaimed by publications from I-D to the Guardian, who said of her 2019 Voicescolourmotion sound and light installation at Snape Maltings/V&A Museum ‘Close harmony, buoyant and sonorous disintegrated into raw noise gradually finding recovery and serene release’.

She has worked extensively with choirs, notably in 2015 she conducted the Goldsmiths Vocal Ensemble for Floating Points’ Elaenia album launch at Islington Assembly Hall.  She has been a frequent collaborator with Unkle (James Lavelle) and Deep Throat Choir who recorded a collaborative album with Simian Mobile Disco in 2019 and are set to release their second album in December 2021.

Blood Moon Project is a new experimental trio between Tanya Auclair, Heloise Tunstall-Behrens and Luisa Gerstein, with an emphasis on polyphonic vocal traditions, and deep listening.  With vocals at the centre of their collaborative practice, each track sees the trio shifting into new sonic landscapes, with the limitation of one extra element on top of the voice. They are currently working on their debut EP.
