The style icon of electronic music and the European New Wave movement, Anne Clark, goes in a completely new and unexpected direction with her new album Borderland. This internationally popular singer brings us a purely acoustic album with spoken poems.
Clark delivers delicate, fragile and very personal lyrics. She frames these with minimalist music. Her poetry tells of the sensual beauty in nature, the unfathomable in art and the courage to let go in life. Her poetry is spoken with care, letting the magic of her voice and every word work and unfold. The music enhances the poignancy of this poetry.
Her band member Justin Ciuche on violin, together with harpist Ulla van Daelen, recorded very reduced sounds in live sessions. These picturesque and beautiful settings let the poems of the language artist shine. In addition to her own texts, she recites poems by William Butler Yeats and Mary Coleridge.
Anne Clark on the new album Borderland: “In a place and time where so many of us have so little control over circumstances and events, I feel privileged to have been given the opportunity to develop and explore ideas and themes around language and music that spontaneously evolved in the great environment of the Stockfisch Records studio.
My co-writer and band member, violinist Justin Ciuche, approached me with the idea of going into the studio with harpist Ulla Van Daelen and recording a full “live” session – with no plan or prior arrangements other than a few notes with ideas for my lyrics.”
