Anne Clark is an English poet and songwriter. Her first recording was The Sitting Room in 1982, and she has released about a dozen albums since then. Her experimental music occupies a region bounded roughly by electronic, dance (techno applies on occasion) and possibly avant-garde genres, with varying hard as well as romantic and orchestral styles.
Clark is mainly a spoken word artist, but she also plays piano and occasionally accompanies herself, with piano and voice mixing in a somewhat atypical New Wave style. Many of her lyrics deal critically with the imperfections of humanity, everyday life, and politics. Especially in her early works she has created a gloomy, melancholy kind ofatmosphere bordering on weltschmerz. On these recordings she is accompanied by a backing tape written by David Harrow, with whom she wrote and produced her 1984 album "Joined up Writing".
