Abstract (Document Summary)

It seems strange that Anne Clark, whose experimentation with poetry and electronic music made her a cult figure in the Eighties, would receive barely any support for her work from her native UK.

Clark is a DJ, singer, musician and poet who says that despite her prominent role in the development of techno in Europe, she has to fight against the music industry in England in order to be heard at all. "That's why I'm so excited to come to Israel," she says in a phone interview. "It's so much more open to new music."

Clark, 40, left school at 16 because she says there wasn't anything there that she couldn't learn reading a book. Her voracious appetite for literature funneled into her passion for writing poetry. As the punk movement raged in London, Clark was blending her words with the hard punk sounds around her as well as the electronic beats that were emerging at the time. She debuted her first few creations with the then-unknown band Depeche Mode.
