great interview. he reps Ed Banger and Sebastian, the man has good taste!


Yeah totally. I think that Ed Bannger stuff had influenced him a lot. You can feel it in Totems Flare.



Also. Clark and Bibio converstion.

Pretty interesting phone interview. It's cool to actually hear him speak. And the interviewer asks some pretty good questions, despite sounding a little unenthusiastic. This is right after Totems Flare was just released.

exactly. that's why it was such an important album for me, it was the heavy electro album that bypassed the trendiness entirely.


I hope Sebastian's album employs this much craftsmanship...

Fresh new one in French here : http://www.traxmag.fr/interview-clark-warp-records/


I don't have the time to translate it but here's an interesting bit !


Some critics have compared Clark to what you were doing at the time of Clarence Park. What do you think of this ?


Today I have the impression that it (Clarence Park) was made by someone else. Someone young, a bit stupid, greasy, schizophrenic and always agitated. But this album (Clark) is more introverted. I love Clarence Park so I take that as a compliment. But I find it weird that people only react to the presence of piano in my Iradelphic tracks. I have always used piano, since the first track of Clarence Park ! I'm a bit fed up with Clark now and I want to defend my earlier albums.

It's funny because I don't think artists ever release records that are so different from one another in terms of quality. To me this comes from the media, presenting efforts as parts of a certain trend, or perceiving changes. Each one of my projects is like a diary, no more no less. I wouldn't favor an album more than another. But I should say that I'm a clumsy artist which I apologize for. I feel more elusive these days... Like a quick lizard with a forked tongue. Maybe tomorrow I'll be a dog again. Would you prefer that ?


How would you describe your course since Clarence Park ?


It's weird. Sometimes I listen to a track and I hardly recognize the young man that made Clarence Park. Sometimes I listen to tracks such as Wolf or Indigo Optimus and I'm thinking I would make them the same way I have. It changes everytime. I would never be able to write Clarence Park today though, really. It's a youthful work. I was barely shaving at the time.
