‘a swell of strings that leaves you feeling suspended in a sea of melodies"
“the luxurious and multi-layered performance, utilizes her profound knowledge of textures and forward-thinking progressions on ‘Stille’.”
— The 405
'Birdsong, shuffling feet and muted conversation are as important in her compositions as cello and violin, or overlaid glitchy electronics. The result is immersive and slightly disorienting’
‘this standalone music has a cinematic quality to it, though it creates images in your mind, rather than complementing them in front of your eyes.’
- Andy Malt @ CMU
'One of the best things on the Quietus'stereo this week has been composer Lucy Claire's Suite EP, sent to us by Ghosting Season's Gavin Miller, who'll be putting it out on his This Is It Forever label.
It's the output of a trio comprising violin, cello and piano, combined with the hum and buzz of field recordings and electronic ambience, making for brilliant, delicately-wrought sketches, run through with an at-times unerringly sinister edge. The EP calls to mind contemporary classical abstraction as much as Mogwai's 'Christmas Steps' and The Lark Ascending over the its two tracks, 'Rituals In Dust' and 'Fantasia On Mildew', with Ghosting Season's Thomas Ragsdale turning in an ace, gently house-y remix of the latter under his Winter Son guise as well.'
- Laurie Tuffrey, The Quietus August 9th, 2013
“A must-listen for everyone who is into classical, ambient and/or experimental music.”
'Another week another amazing demo! Composer Lucy Claire incorporates binaural recordings into her own brand of lush string and piano based textures and glitchy electronics, creating something that is warm yet unsettling all at once.' - FAT CAT RECORDS
'It’s hard to be the standout on a 40-song compilation, but that’s what we said about Lucy Claire‘s “Paelistin” when we reviewed SEQUENCE6 - A Closer Listen
