Claire Rousay

silent green presents

Claire Rousay is a singular artist, known for challenging conventions in experimental and ambient music forms. rousay masterfully incorporates textural found sounds, sumptuous drones and candid field recordings into music that celebrates the beauty in life’s banalities. Her music is curatorial and granular in detail, deftly shaped into emotionally affecting pieces. sentiment is a meditation of the poignant emotional terrains of loneliness, nostalgia, sentimentality, guilt, and sex. The album’s narrative arc is guided by delicate musical gestures and artistic vulnerability, audaciously synthesizing disparate and unexpected influences. rousay crafted the songs in various homes, bedrooms, hotels, and other private places, the feeling of time and energy spent alone radiating from each passage. The album is a collection of heart-rending, incisive pop songs that explore universal feelings with subtlety and remarkable vision.

Jules Reidy composes music for processed and acoustic instruments, especially guitars. Reidy's music can be described as a unique blend of classical takoma/fingerstyle with electronic drones and found sound. Her current work combines a range of non-traditional song forms that unite unstable harmonic territories, rhythmic elasticity and abstract narratives of episodic forms.
