Anastasia Clarke (b. 1987) is a composer, performer, technologist, sound designer, and archivist. Anastasia’s live embodied electronic music performances consider the artist’s role as a healer and activist while using custom-built instruments or performing systems to arrange narrative material modularly. Performances have taken place in galleries, concert halls, DIY venues, and unsuspecting community spaces across the United States. Collaborations have included Boom Bat Gesture Performance Group, Mechanism Dance Theatre Collective, 2019–2020’s Uncommon Circuits ensemble, and a wide range of improvising instrumentalists in the NYC and San Francisco Bay Area. Clarke also speaks and presents, most recently at Expo ’74, NIME, The School for Poetic Computation, and as a visiting lecturer. In 2018 Anastasia earned an MFA in Electronic Music and Recording Media from Mills College, and subsequently received support for work and research from the Queens Arts Fund, EMS (Stockholm), Tri-tryagain, CCRMA, and a 2020 Van Lier Fellowship at Roulette.
