Hi Claire, I didn’t realise that you uploaded “live atCMC”. I listened it this Sunday morning and it touched me. So beautifully interwoven between what I feel inside and what is going on outside of me. Thanks for this unusual piece. Pietro

Live Performance for CMC Multilocation Festival on July 16th, 2021
San Antonio, TX-based sound artist and musician claire rousay has risen to prominence over the past few years with a body of work that’s strange, diverse, and often somewhat confessional. Her discography encompasses exuberant solo percussion recordings, elusive assemblages of field recordings, warped pop, and what she has come to term “emo-ambient.” In a recent feature in the New York Times she declares “I basically record my whole life”, and one catches fragments of mundane exchanges or peculiar auditory phenomenon she happened to record threaded throughout her compositions. rousay’s music is potent and disquieting despite tending often to favour unostentatious dynamics and timbres, instead commanding engagement through its acute sense of place, disarming vulnerability, and even wry humour.

I discovered this album in the midst of a nervous breakdown. My now ex left me for a week to go camping with her friends. I was alone in our apartment stoned having a panic attack. By the time this album was done though I was cruising, at peace with everything. Everything in my life was fucked up and weird but it was ok.
Amazing album. Tyler Knapp
