Today marks the first day of summer. It is also the day to reveal our second monthly mix - and what a mix it is!
i.e. crazy is the gothic folk project of Claire Duncan. Previously recording and performing under the alias Dear Time’s Waste, Claire released her debut i.e. crazy album Non Compos Mentis on Muzai Records early last year. The album sees Claire inhabit various characters and use narrative storytelling to explore the relationship between civility and sanity and the suppressed subconscious of suburban Aotearoa. Claire plays with the constructed nature of musical performance and the live experience of i.e. crazy is both intense and rapturous.
Claire has also collaborated on a range of theatre and art projects, most recently as sound designer for Biljana Popovich's Synthetic Baby, Sriwhana Spong's a hook but no fish and Madhan/Croft/Frankovich's experimental theatre piece Medusa.
