Label: Tall Poppies Cat. No.: TP223 Medium: CD No. Discs: 1

Claire Edwardes is one of Australia's most charismatic performers, and this is her third solo CD for Tall Poppies. Her first CD (Coil: TP193) contained a selection of important Australian works; her second (Flash: TP215) featured an eclectic array of miniatures taken from the children’s piano literature as well as new commissions, for which she was the recipient of the 2012 Art Music Award for Excellence.
Her innate desire to commission new works is a feature of all Claire’s recordings. Her latest CD ONE, is no exception, with new works composed for her by both Australian and international composers. She also includes repertoire staples by Xenakis, Stockhausen and Rzewski. What is immediately evident is the huge variety of approaches to the vast sound world of percussion, often using no more than just her voice and a single sound source whether it be a hi hat or hardware-variety flower pots.
This CD is a wild ride, so strap on your seatbelt and enjoy!
REVIEWS
In the year 2000 the Beatles produced a CD that they called 1. In 2013 Claire Edwardes has produced her own version of ONE and a very interesting and effective one it is. It all sounds like a wonderful musical magic mystery tour. The CD repertoire of eleven percussion works is a mix between existing works and some commissions.
Xenakis is well-represented with his Rebonds B and Rebonds A, where we hear bongos, congas, tom toms, bass drums and woodblocks all wonderfully rhythmically fused. Adelaide-born Matthew Shlomowitz chose the hi-hat but expects the performer to vocalise which reveals a little about the performer. Old MacDonald’s Yellow Submarine by Eric Griswold, drawing on influences from John Cage, is an exploration of sounds and interlocking rhythms. Laurence Crane composed his Solo for Claire Edwardes, which was premiered in 2005. The style is reflective with an interesting pre-record aspect to the performance. With Mexican-born Javier Alvarez's Temazcal the maraca material is drawn from traditional Latin-American rhythm patterns where we encounter sound sources on tape, harp, a folk guitar and pizzicato double bass. Stuart Greenbaum's Clockwork Lemon, written solely for snare drum and hi-hat, explores 2/3 and 5/8 rhythms and is naturally a playful reference to the film Clockwork Orange. Stockhausen's Aquarius and Taurus, Rzewski's To the Earth and Robert Sierra's Bongo-O complete the highlights.
Edwardes continues to show amazing technique on a whole variety of colourful instruments and she’s now sorted for the moment the problem of accommodating her instruments in the back of her car.
