claire rousay is based in San Antonio, Texas. Her music zeroes in on personal emotions and the minutiae of everyday life — voicemails, haptics, environmental recordings, stopwatches, whispers and conversations — exploding their significance. rousay has released music on a range of labels, most notably Astral Spirits, Second Editions, Longform Editions and American Dreams, who in 2021 released a softer focus, a collaboration with visual artist Dani Toral.
rousay’s music has received acclaim from NPR, which writes that rousay “enchants the ordinary,” and Pitchfork, which calls her music “quietly devastating.” rousay has presented music at venues like Issue Project Room, Casa Del Lago (CDMX) and Salon De Normandy (Paris), among many others, held residencies at Rhizome DC and Elastic Arts Exposure Series, and performed with musicians such as Ken Vandermark, Ingebrigt Haker-Flaten, Jacob Wick and Tom Carter.
“…As a percussionist turned sound artist, the San Antonio-based musician has put out a whopping 19 releases since 2019…Her work has increasingly incorporated a broad variety of sounds from unlikely sources; records like 2020’s ‘a heavenly touch’ wrung haunting beauty from processed field recordings and tender piano arrangements, while ‘both’ and ‘it was always worth it’ used rich, textural electronics to induce ASMR-like effects at the lowest threshold of audible perception. On ‘a softer focus’, she captures a newfound intimacy, one that’s grounded and personal while still feeling otherworldly…Nothing is off limits, as rousay unearths modes of expression that make it hard to remember a time when ambient music sounded any differently. Through it all, rousay somehow makes this progression feel completely natural.”
Rod Arcand, Pitchfork
“…One gets the impression that Rousay is carrying us in her back pocket as she goes about her day, and we’re all privy to her daily routine…”
