This is percussionist Claire Edwardes' fifth CD. Clairaudience is
clear hearing, or the ability to perceive sound from outside
sources, often in the spirit world. Psychics who are clairaudient
hear voices, sounds or music that are not audible to the normal
All the tracks, except two, feature an external electronic sound source created by the composer to accompany the solo percussion part. In the case of the Steve Reich arrangement the accompanying tracks are essentially a layering of many parts to create a rich web of sound. The majority of these works were written for Claire and recorded in close collaboration with the composers.
Duration: 60 min.
