It is with the heaviest of hearts that Resonant Motion acknowledges the passing of Claire Randall on December 8, 2016. Claire was part of the RMI team virtually from inception, along with her life and musical partner Gabe Gordon, who survives her along with her mother Anita, sister Molly, brother Gabe, and a legion of heartbroken family, friends, and admirers of her music. Her spirit of abundant goodness, musical transcendence, and commitment to social justice is embedded in the organization’s DNA. Frankly, the overwhelming degree of emotional devastation over this tragedy is such that we have yet to assess “what this means” for the organization. All we can say is that we are ever more fiercely determined to use music as a force for good, both because Claire’s memory demands it and because her now-soaring spirit is of the same substance to which we have aspired from the beginning. We will also be involved in the profoundly bittersweet task of gathering and presenting some of the musical work she left behind, just part of her legacy of beauty on this planet.

Please join us in saying farewell to Claire, sending peace to Gabe and to Claire’s family, and rolling up our sleeves to double down in the work of creating vibrations of all sorts that make our world a more compassionate place.
