Anna Meredith's Tripotage Miniatures Available on NMC Recordings

Sep. 17, 2020

NMC Recordings has released the premiere recording of Anna Meredith's Tripotage Miniatures for six instruments performed by members of the Aurora Orchestra. Anna Meredith describes this work:

"Tripotage Miniatures are a collection of three duets, two trios and a tutti movement for mixed sextet.  Each miniature is around 1-3 minutes long.  The miniatures are exploring different kinds of opacity, glitch, fuzz, shade and grime – imagining underhand dealings that place a sort of filmy surface on top of the material. (My favorite translation of Tripotage from the French is Jiggery Pokery)  Sometimes this filter seems to drain color- turning the material almost sepia, sometimes it makes ideas a bit murkier – harder to grasp, slippery and falling through the fingers, sometimes it causes moments to stutter and distort and sometimes its about capturing a fleeting feeling of distance, of something out of reach. There are tiny thematic links between the movements but they could also be played individually – its about capturing a moment – even if it’s a slightly shady and disquieting one."

The new recording can be streamed on Spotify here.
