On July 26th the top-ranking leftfield star Clark will release ‘Kiri Variations’.
“I want people to listen to this in the same way they would read a set of Roald Dahl short stories; bitter-sweet tales with hooks and teeth and unexpected macabre twists. Proper Witch vibes.” Clark
This album of plaintive beauty, eerie wyrd arcadian horror and childlike outsider music epitomises Clarks’ ability to flip-the-script and coherently organise an abundance of new ideas.
Kiri Variations’ started life as the score to the BAFTA-nominated TV program ‘Kiri’, a portion of the music recorded was used – intentionally sparingly – by director Euros Lyn. That first incarnation has since grown and morphed into something entirely of its own being.
Live highlights include a live score accompaniment to Stan Brakhage’s cult classic short film ‘Dog Star Man’, during Max Richter’s ‘Sounds and Visions’ weekend at The Barbican
Most recently Clark headlined ‘Bach Evolution’ at London’s prestigious Royal Albert Hall, playing a specially commissioned set that reinvented Bach’s work, accompanied by cellist Oliver Coates.
