Glasgow microcosm by CLAIR: Bringing outside inside
When I'm field recording I'm also photographing. Some people say you need to look up in Glasgow to appreciate the beauty of the city, and I do appreciate architechture, but personally I like to look down and soak up the textures. The dirt, the litter, the ugly, the street art, the moss, the weeds. To see things people don't notice, to think about the countless people who've walked, ran, worked, lived and died across these streets and parks, the ones who created the beauty and others who destroyed it, perhaps unintentionally maybe even without realising it. I see these textures and colours as sound.
Boomkat referred to my music as Environmental music, this is my environment
Is it wrong to create art from destruction?'
Gear Heads by CLAIR
CLAIR is Scottish experimental artist Clair Crawford, inspired by nature she uses Transcendental meditation, magick, field recordings, percussion, horns, the sounds of random objects, vocal oddities and piano keys to create collages of neo classical, folk, abstract, ambient, or ‘environmental music’. CLAIR said: 'Some of my hardware user mates shared their choice pieces, so I took this as an inspiration to create my interpretation of them in collage form'.
