Last month saw the the release of Nuc, the new collaborative record from Ligeti Quartet and incredible electronic contemporary composer, producer and musician Anna Meredith. Nuc sees Ligeti Quartet perform compositions from Meredith, including pieces arranged by viola player Richard Jones.
An exuberant and exhilarating record, Nuc sprouted from a conversation between Meredith and Jones who have been collaborating with each other for more than a decade. As the press release describes, Nuc “is a joyful, occasionally furious, never too serious, sometimes energetic and sometimes restful collection of tracks which dazzle with Anna’s signature compulsive harmonies, rhythmic shifts of gear and sparkling textures.”
Opener ‘Tuggemo’ kick starts the album majestically. The track was previously released as a single with an accompanying video directed by Ewan Jones Morris. Watch it below
Nuc is out now through Mercury KX
