Her multi award winning performances combine a theatrical energy with charismatic and original interpretations. In Marimba Trance Claire presents an eclectic array of works on the grand 5-octave marimba – an instrument of African heritage known for its unique mellow yet woody tones. Martin Wesley-Smith’s popular 1983 classic, For Marimba and Tape is pitted against a fresh new work by Alex Pozniak written exactly 31 years later, which also utilises pre-recorded electronics but from the here and now. Fertility Rites by Greek Canadian composer Christos Hatzis combines the marimba with closely miked breathing resulting in a heated dialogue between the live and the pre-recorded. The inherently rhythmic nature of the marimba is explored throughout the program with upbeat miniatures by German composer Matthias Schmitt and Australians Matthew Hindson, Gerard Brophy and Stuart Greenbaum.
