Aidan Baker’s (Nadja) Triptychs takes inspiration from Erik Satie’s compositions Gymnop=C3=A9dies and his notion of “furniture music,” which many consider a precursor to contemporary ambient music. Each “triptych” is based around a simple, slow-moving melodic line, which repeats three times with the addition of a harmonic line upon each repetition, culminating in a three part harmony. Various musicians from different ensembles and musical backgrounds — Peter Broderick, Julia Kent, Leah Buckareff (of Nadja), Aki Yakamoto (of Vampillia), and Baker himself — were invited to record their interpretations of these compositions.
