Clara Rivière Visier is a cellist of chameleonic qualities who is in demand for collaborations and experimentation with musicians and composers alike, ranging from baroque, classical, to contemporary music and improvisation. She thrives in creating interdisciplinary projects, including Werkplaats K Artist in Residence, and maintains a cello studio in the Rotterdam region. A Madrid native, she studied in Salamanca, Spain, Het Koninklijk Conservatorium Den Haag, and completed her Master of Music at Fonty’s Tilburg Hoogeschool den Kunsten with Monique Heidema. She currently performs and teaches in Madrid, Spain.
UNDA Cellotrónica album coming soon
The inspiration for this project is how the voice of the cello may be enriched by the manifold options the electroacoustic world can bring. For Yvonne Freckmann, composing is the ideal way to explore ideas and sounds to engage the mind. For cellist Clara Rivière inspiration comes through experimentation with fresh ideas and living at the intersection of music, theater and multimedia performances. Together they form part of the group Klanktheater, dedicated to exactly their strengths.
UNDA Cellotrónica is the result of the four-year exploration of melding a classical modern cello sound with pre-recorded sounds that range from trains, to birds, to recordings of the cello itself. The album UNDA (in Latin, waves), is a compilation of the five exciting works. We hope to present this project in upcoming concerts around the world.
Fantastic talented colleagues: Thomas Rex Beverly masters the recording while painter/graphic designer Karin Veldkamp designs the album art.
