T E Morris

An Unknown Island

Tomorrow I release the first chapter of my debut novel / soundtrack / animated film.

An Unknown Island is set generations into a new ice age and follows two characters as they traverse the length and breadth of an inhospitable landscape.

A young, pregnant Gwen and a quiet, partially maimed Owen, both bear physical and mental scars. Ejected from their community, they are led on by bizarre dreams and visions that will take them farther than anyone has travelled in decades, towards a predestined fate.

An Unknown Island is a serial novel by songwriter T E Morris, also of Her Name Is Calla. Alongside the book are two soundtracks, one for each of the main characters. A new chapter and a track from each soundtrack will be released every 2-3 weeks for the next 18 months. Occasionally, the tracks can be overlaid to create a new third piece of music. The soundtracks will expand upon themes and moments within each chapter.

In addition, An Unknown Island will feature animated stills and shorts by Ana Stefaniak filling in the gaps between chapters as well as original artwork.

The book comes as a PDF with a Zip file containing two high quality mp3’s and two AIFFS.

Chapter one is released tomorrow, 10th Oct and available to preorder here
