Annie Clark on the intersection of her music, fashion, choreography and art
What should we look for in your performance?
I hope everybody has an experience. I spent a lot of time making sure that this show doesn’t feel like a couple people onstage jamming for an hour. I want it to be immersive and like a fever dream and get to the more subconscious part of your brain.
You mentioned in an interview once that you like to make music that’s accessible but also walks the line of being fringe. If you were making music just for yourself or for friends, would you have fun making it as strange as you could?
I would make exactly the kind of music I’m making. The challenge is making oddness accessible, and that’s where the most fun is. It’s not even odd if you look at things in a broader context. I’m not trying to put Penderetsky into a Britney Spears song. It’s not that weird, but there’s that balance and that challenge of straddling two worlds that is interesting.
