Podcast: the nature of being a percussionist

In this podcast from Musica Viva, Paul Kildea chats to our Artistic Director/percussionist Claire Edwardes about her kaleidoscopic musical background, and how her love of playing music with other people has led her down the path of music curation.

The conversation turns to a discussion of various instruments and the nature of being a percussionist, as the pair delve more deeply into Claire’s musical journey from Sydney to Rotterdam, her decision to leave Australia, what motivated her to return, as well as her transition from musician to composer.

They also briefly touch on Musica Viva’s imminent partnership with Ensemble Offspring’s Hatched Academy to collaborate and workshop with upcoming Australian composers.
