The group was formed in 1985 by individuals interested in exploring the possibilities of live electronics and collective improvisation. The members have diverse musical backgrounds, including teaching electronic music at Morley College and playing in other groups ranging from Cornelius Cardew's Scratch Orchestra, Nurse With Wound and Organum. Clive Graham runs Paradigm Discs. Michael Prime runs Mycophile which mainly releases his own music. Adam Bohman continues to make improvised music with many London artists. Most recent Morphogenesis concert was in September 2015 at Café OTO in London

One of my favourite bands, I am very sorry to have discovered them very late, more than 10 years after they disbanded, but anyway their soundscapes seem to be avantgarde even nowadays. I discovered them while I was searching for other artists, like Organum, and was astonished from their sounds,... that's just what I was searching for, ... improvisations... so no repetitions and no stupid loops, no rhythms and a lot of different sounds with a lot of movement and dynamics. If you can be ok with such a type of listening do not esitate, all their records are OK! If you need a comparison maybe I can cite Core, Cranioclast, Organum, early Nurse With Wound, or other bands from the early industrial ambient scene, but Morphogenesis are more various in my opinion.
