Paralaxe Editions Presents:

claire rousay + Dania 

claire rousay's music zeroes in on personal emotions and the minutiae of everyday life -- voicemails, haptics, environmental recordings, stopwatches, whispers and conversations -- exploding their significance.

Now based in Los Angeles, claire's acute assemblages of sound are both a diaristic portal into the life of their creator, and an exercise in dressing and undressing the bare audio field using compositional threads that feel loosely entangled, yet fastidiously woven. A prolific run of recordings since 2020, culminating in 2022's 'everything perfect is already here' (Shelter Press), has seen Claire come closer than most modern sound-makers to aesthetically nailing the temperament of a world turned inward.

Claire's live show -brings a singular reflexivity, unflinching honesty and adroit humour to the performance space, with an ever-burgeoning audience accepting the invite into her soundworld.

"What a songwriter might convey in poetry, rousay evokes with raw audio. You could call it sound art, but it’s viscerally vulnerable" - New York Times.


An architect of textured, neo-ambient soundscapes, the music of Dania explores both sound and identity, focusing on how the latter has fractured in a post-colonial world.

Born in Baghdad, raised in Tasmania and now based in Barcelona, she moves between cultures and continents, her amorphous creative vision directly tied to her transient existence. The founder of experimental outpost Paralaxe Editions, Dania divides her time between Spain and the remote corners of Australia, where she works as an emergency doctor. Her musical practice, however, is preoccupied with harmonics and tonality, weaving together manipulated vocal fragments, processed field recordings and meditative atmospheres. She has released on labels such as Geographic North, Superpang and Ecstatic.
