DAVID ANTONY CLARK (b 1955 )
Born in New Zealand's southern city of Dunedin, David spent most of his early years on a musical diet of British folk and rock. From the age of 15, David played regularly in bands as an acoustic and bass guitarist, touring many
of the remotest parts of the country. Most of David’s third decade was spent in Europe, notably in Ireland, France, Germany, and Austria where he taught English and guitar. A lengthy period of travelling the ‘hippy highway’ brought him into contact with the many cultures of the Middle East and Indian subcontinent to which he returns regularly.
His love of music, travel and technology combined when he encountered Jon
Mark, formerly of the Mark-Almond band, and his partner Thelma Burchell
and was invited to join their White Cloud label. Six solo releases and
one collaboration with Jon Mark have so far resulted with further works
David continues to travel the world in his quest for musical and cultural
experience and to record the sounds of environments and cultures for future
generations. He has explored the Pacific, the Far East and American continent and still his greatest inspiration continues to be drawn from the beauty of the natural world.
David now lives in Wellington, New Zealand where he and fellow White Cloud artist and business partner Radha Sahar run UCA Recording, a digital production and mastering house specializing in educational resources.
He also works along side Jon Mark as mixing and mastering engineer. David’s ambition is to continue travelling, spending more time in Europe and the United States discussing and promoting his work and pushing yet further the boundaries of neo-primal music.
