Antony Interviewed & Reviewed | Matmos
2) Drew Daniel interviewed Antony for Pitchfork. Here are some out-of-context excerpts:
Antony: Well my theory is that the songs on this album are more internally focused. The first album is a reflection, a vision of the world, a landscape of the world, and this new one is an interior landscape. I was really inspired by Cat Power’s The Covers Record— because of its intimacy….
Antony: No, it’s a Christmas cake type picture of us with Jimmy Scott in the middle.
Antony: Sometimes I like to just whistle and see if I can get the audience to whistle with me to create a little aviary. Sometimes the whistling thing can be so beautiful. We did it once at Town Hall— it can be so magical, it’s one of those group participation things that really can be exciting….
…Antony’s vocal tracks for a song on the next Matmos album…
Antony: It got even worse when I did this Creativity Now conference in New York last week and I tried to get everyone to do singing exercises together. You do get embarassed, but that’s the Leigh Bowery principle, that embarassment is good, it’s a jumping off point to move through that shame….
3) Stay tuned for photos of from the Creativity Now conference (I keep forgetting to post them).
