Biography

U.K.-blessed, California-raised Antony Hegarty felt just like the consummate outsider until approaching in person using the image of Guy George over the cover of Lifestyle Club’s 1982 debut album, Kissing to become Smart. Eight years afterwards, Hegarty relocated to NEW YORK and found a global more recognizing of avant-garde sensibilities and intimate ambiguity. An early on incarnation was the cabaret ensemble Blacklips, modeled after Blue Velvet-era Isabella Rossellini as well as the move queen who graced the cover of Soft Cell’s 1982 one “Torch.” Hegarty produced Antony as well as the Johnsons in 1998, as well as the music group released its self-titled debut on David Tibet’s Durtro label in 2000, accompanied by an appearance over the Lou Reed albums The Raven and Pet Serenade, and also a tour with Reed throughout 2003. (Hegarty also made an appearance within the 2000 Steve Buscemi film Pet Stock as an androgynous convict.) Antony as well as the Johnsons released some EPs in 2004, accompanied by the band’s second full-length, the Mercury Prize-winning I Am a Parrot Now, in Feb of 2005. Antony spent another 2 yrs on the highway, in addition to showing up on Björk’s Volta and in the Leonard Cohen documentary I’m Your Guy before time for the studio room for the 2008 EP Another Globe, which preceded 2009’s full-length The Crying Light. Antony as well as the Johnsons’ 4th studio record, Swanlights, arrived the next season. In 2011, the album’s publisher, Abrams, released a companion model of Swanlights gathered in book type, with Antony’s paintings, drawings, picture taking, collages, tune lyrics, and writings. In 2012, the music group released Slice the Globe, a symphonic retrospective organized and performed in cooperation using the Danish Country wide Chamber Orchestra. It highlighted 11 tracks off their catalog as well as the name cut, a fresh song created for Robert Wilson’s stage creation THE LIFE SPAN and Death of Marina Abramovic. In 2006, Hegarty collaborated with video musician Charles Atlas on the performance piece known as Turning, which mixed a live show by Antony as well as the Johnsons with video projections developed by Atlas offering women who experienced battled with self-image and intimate identity within their lives. Atlas later on produced a documentary concerning the display, simply entitled Turning, and in 2014 the film’s soundtrack recording premiered in tandem having a Dvd and blu-ray edition from the film. In 2015, Antony announced the impending launch of a fresh task with Hudson Mohawke and Oneohtrix Stage Never. The producing Hopelessness, a dark, experimental digital piece that this she released beneath the moniker Anohni, was released in 2016. That same 12 months Antony received an Academy Award nomination for Greatest Original Track, with J. Ralph, for “Manta Ray,” which made an appearance within the 2015 documentary film Race Extinction.

#Quote
1 When I was seven, I bought The Kick Inside by Kate Bush, and it opened up this mystical world to me. I really believe in the magical garden as a safe place where a child can explore and develop and emerge, it's absolutely necessary for this safe place to exist and it's a feminine circle, the circle of family. The Kick Inside opened up a universe inside me - of dreams and happiness and possibilities.
2 I think back to a time before computers and cell phones, and it was a more creative time. For all the convenience involved in digital technology, I don't see what it's done other than helped create a monoculture and what use is that?
