|Anna Meredith Varmints Limited Vinyl LP + Download
· For all its atmospheric diversity, Anna Meredith’s
‘Varmints’, released on Moshi Moshi, is held together by her expert understanding of dynamics. “Pacing is a
physical thing,” she explains. “I can feel when stuff has to happen in a track. I knew I wanted ‘Varmints’ to end
privately but start confidently, have moments of privacy
and moments of power and build. I love writing a build - my friends talk about ‘the Meredith Build’! I love the
feeling of ‘get on board, we’re building up now!’ Even if
you’re dancing at a club, there’s an amazing transparency to a build.”
· Aside from sharing bills with Anna Calvi, James Blake and These New Puritans, Meredith’s dizzying CV includes being Composer In Residence for the BBC Scottish Symphony Orchestra, writing a piece for MRI scanner, soundtracking Prada’s Spring / Summer 2015 campaign, symphonies created for nursery children, music for park benches in Hong Kong and sleep-pods in Singapore.
· Recent performances at the BBC Proms have included collaborations with Laura Marling and The Stranglers for the first 6Music Prom, a performance of her bodypercussion piece ‘Connect It’ from the BBC Ten Pieces project and her Last Night Of The Proms composition ‘Froms’, simultaneously performed by five symphony orchestras across the UK, was broadcast to an audience of 40 million people.
