This heartfelt track holds a special place in my heart. Immersion was born during a period of immense stress and intensity, compelling me to create a musical masterpiece that would convey the plethora of emotions I was experiencing.

Influenced by the likes of Olufur Arnalds and Nils Frahm, my neo-classical style is deeply rooted in the works of classical masters such as Chopin, Debussy, Mahler, and Barber. Through Immersion, I aim to evoke a sense of calm and nourishment, embracing a slightly minimalistic approach to song composition.
Recently, I had the incredible opportunity to collaborate with the Lousianna Philharmonic Orchestra for their Harry Potter and Home Alone concert series. Playing the soundtrack alongside the films was an absolute joy, particularly since both scores were composed by the legendary John Williams.
“Created with the intention of awakening the body,” writes We Write About Music, “Claire Bigley’s latest track, ‘Emodiment,’ grounds the listener, urging them to focus within and appreciate the beauty of minimalistic songwriting.”
Immersion was recorded in the comfort of my spare bedroom, using Garage Band and my trusted keyboard. This project was deeply inspired by the challenging experience of caring for my mother after her leg injury. It highlights the interplay between grace and strength, reflecting the ever-changing and sometimes tumultuous nature of life.
In the words of Anthony Gucciardi, “Claire, your performance was in the key of divinity. Truly stunning how you are able to convey energy so well.” With Immersion, I invite you to immerse yourself in the power of music and embark on a transformative journey of emotions and resilience.
