Anne Gillis
Anne Gillis is a mysterious visual artist, composer and performer. A 2022 full-length Wire article described her work as “explor[ing] a highly personal realm connecting objects and our sensations of them over four decades." Her influential work spans histories of concrete music and experimental performance. Gillis has performed internationally, recently including Tokyo 2016, Blank forms NYC, MACBA Barcelona 2019. Gillis has been described as, “one of the missing links in experimental electronic and prototypical industrial music.” Gillis emerged (as Manon Anne Gillis and Devil's Picnic) from the Parisian experimental music scene of the 80s, her dense, intricate and intimate work finding a place on the margins of minimal synth and post-industrial sound. Over five albums her recordings explored realms of repetition, cut-up techniques, voice manipulation, and concrete bodily sounds sculpted into miniatures that Gillis hoped would turn loudspeakers into stethoscopes. Live, Gillis dedicates her work to curves, volutes, roundnesses, undulations, rolling-ups and rotations, her visceral ritual performances exploring the body and its societal codes.
