The sound of Cosey playing. The grande dame of British electronic music talks about her art, generation and nude provocation.
_(artist-name)Cosey Fanni Tutti_ is a seismic force in cultural terms. Whether delivering confrontational performances in radical Dadaist art group _(artist-name)COUM Transmissions_, shaping the mould for industrial music as one quarter of _(artist-name)Throbbing Gristle_, constructing a prototype for techno and acid house with her partner Chris in _(artist-name)Carter Tutti_ and _(artist-name)Chris & Cosey_, or discombobulating the bounds of art with her explorations in glamour-modeling, her work has frequently been years ahead of its time. Cosey’s work has influenced thought across the creative spectrum. The seminal Throbbing Gristle album _(album-title)20 Jazz Funk Greats_ was so influential that _(artist-name)Carl Craig_ directly referenced it in his 1991 69 EP _(album-title)4 Jazz Funk Classics_. Cosey has collaborated widely with artists including Monte Cazazza, _(artist-name)Coil_, _(artist-name)Current 93_, John Duncan, _(artist-name)Erasure_, _(artist-name)Eurythmics_, _(artist-name)Boyd Rice_, or _(artist-name)Robert Wyatt_, and always with a distinctly original and genuine approach to music. She continues to produce music, art and video work from the London studio she owns with Chris Carter.
