Embodiment (duet) by Claire Bigley: Review
Melodically serene and dramatic to its core, the track “Embodiment” by Claire Bigley is simply touching and is a lovely musical tune to experience. The tune has a moving expression and flow, courtesy of the piano and cello pieces. Intertwined together, both instruments vividly portray a sorrowful but pleasant aura.
Jami Sieber did a fantastic job in composing the cello portions of the track. It blended beautifully with the ambient production of the piano segments. Claire’s playstyle is quite light-hearted and has a delicate feeling that the masses would appreciate immensely. At times “Embodiment” rises in tension, and the lower tempos have a cinematic transition where the sound is truly magnificent to hear. Hearing the track made me think back to elements of film and theatre. Instrumental music as such is quite integral in building a world around your characters. Thus, the piano and cello music of the artists in the spotlight would mix beautifully if the right situation was put into perspective.
There’s an immense amount of passion present in the cello segments. As an enthusiast of classical music myself, I was pleasantly moved by the performance! Both Claire and Jami’s instrumental prowess had a nice touch of finesse. They didn’t quite clash, rather a balance was established where the cello complimented the piano sequences. Classical music as such brings an overwhelming sense of calm. There’s something quite whimsical about the nature of stringed instruments, and their relation to one’s nerves!
