Whited Sepulchre Records is thrilled to announce its release of four one-sided 12” records by Andrew Elaban, claire rousay, Fruit LoOops and Ono. The releases run the gamut from modular synth, experimental percussion, Skingraft-era Noise-Punk to triumphant and deconstructed post-punk.
On her first for LP Whited Sepulchre, Claire Rousay offers the smart phone as crystal ball. A tool whose unknowable properties allow us to reach across time and space, eavesdrop and peer deep into the intentions of our friends and enemies. Except that this crystal ball gazes back at you.
claire’s two compositions offer an almost painfully accurate mise en scene where sustained tones, plunderphonic samples and field recorded snippets of conversations are met with deeply solipsistic scenes where we are hurtled into the body of an uncreated body as they scroll, type, delete while the flutter of anxiety caused memories and inner-dialogue keep them up in much more meaningful ways that the circadian rhythm destroying blue light from their crystal ball.
claire rousay is a person who performs and records. She currently lives in San Antonio, Texas. Her performances and recordings explore queerness, human relationships, and self-perception through the use of physical objects and their potential sounds. rousay performs with Brandon Lopez, Carol Genetti, Ingebrigt Haker-Flaten, Jacob Wick, Ken Vandermark, Lori Goldston, Michael Foster, Tom Carter, and others. rousay’s work has been performed at locations such as Casa del Popolo, Constellation Chicago, Experimental Sound Studio’s Option Series, Iklectik Art Lab (London), Issue Project Room, and the Tobin Center for Performing Arts (San Antonio).
