Chris Clark (aka Clark)
Signed at an early age to the British indie label Warp, Clark has worked with music and sound for 16 years. The release of his 2014 album, the eponymously titled Clark, was followed by an extensive 70-date worldwide tour which took him to festivals including Pitchfork (Chicago), Field Day (London), Taico (Japan) and MoMA (New York) amongst many others. His latest album, Death Peak, was extensively toured with a fully choreographed show by acclaimed choreographer Melanie Lane.
Clark’s other score work includes BAFTA-nominated mini-series The Last Panthers. Starring British acting legend John Hurt, Samantha Morton and Tahar Rahim, it also featured title music from the late David Bowie. His dance collaborations have seen him work with numerous choreographers; Melanie Lane at the Sydney Opera House, Wayne McGregor at the Roundhouse for +/- Human, and with renowned Australian choreographer Antony Hamilton in his new work Sentinel for Skänes Dansteater in Mälmo, Sweden. He has also worked in theatre – providing original music for Macbeth at the Young Vic, directed by Carrie Cracknell and Lucy Guerin. His extensive inventory of remixes for the likes of Massive Attack, Depeche Mode, Battles, Nils Frahm and Max Richter were collected in 2013 on the Feast/Beast double album.
Clark’s highly accomplished output can be heard across nine studio albums, a multitude of EPs and singles, as well as across theatre, TV, and dance. He has also scored the music to new TV series, Kiri – a gripping four-part drama from BAFTA-winning writer Jack Thorne (This Is England, Skins, Harry Potter and the Cursed Child), and starring BAFTA-winning Sarah Lancashire (Happy Valley, Last Tango in Halifax). The first episode averaged 3.2 million viewers – Channel 4’s biggest drama launch in over two years. As well as this, Clark has composed original scores for TV (HBO, Sky and AMC, and The Last Panthers for Sky Atlantic), Video Games (Sleeping Dogs), contemporary dance and ballet (Wayne McGregor, Sydney Dance Company).
