Info for Some Other Place
“Some Other Place” is Meredi’s new solo piano album and a rework of her last released ambient album „Trance”. The three main melodies from “Trance” run through seven piano variations. It’s about “wishing yourself far away, to another place – to find solace there and so also to find yourself,” says the Berlin-based composer, pianist and producer. “The moment I play the piano I become the music. I am not here anymore. I am on that other side. That other place.”
While her last album “Trance” deals with the different activestages in a trance, “Some Other Place” is about the end of a trance, about that state just before you wake up…”where you are far away, in this other place and at the same time also very close to yourself, in a quiet and vulnerable state…”.
Meredi reduces her new compositions to the core: “I want to be as honest as possible. Only say what I really want to say.“ The album is very reduced and intimately recorded at home on her piano, where all the melodies were also created.
Music is Meredi’s way of communicating, of expressing herself. Her longing for a sanctuary and an old piano that stood in the hallway of her parents’ house led Meredi to music at a young age. After the great success of her last solo piano debut album “Stardust” (among others Top 10 Post-Classical Albums of 2020 BBC Music Magazine) Meredi achieves with “Some Other Place” to bring her audience to distant places and at the same time to find oneself.
