  • There's nothing I like more, in the world, than making music.

  • My name is Annie Clark. I song-write using a lot of technology

  • and I have a band called St. Vincent.

  • In the 60s there was the singer-songwriter, just the troubadour.

  • It's kind of morphed into this multidimensional technological way of doing things.

  • My uncle Tuck Andress and my aunt Patti, the jazz duo Tuck & Patti, they really raised me musically.

  • I remember them saying to me, "Be good to the music, and the music will be good to you"—that stuck with me.

  • I made a record with David Byrne called Love This Giant.

  • We sent files over the Internet, back and forth, for about four years. Each of us adding little ideas;

  • playing this sort of musical tennis with brass arrangements.

  • I would describe ingenuity as not just looking at the past, but thinking about the future of music, humanity,

  • and the future of technology; and how all of those things all meet up.

  • I lose sense of my body when things are at a really high point musically.

  • There's no self-consciousness, and that's the best feeling.

  • There's nothing in the world I'm capable of doing besides making music. [laughs]
