Antony's Meltdown: Elizabeth Fraser
This year' s Meltdown director is musician/visual artist Antony. Having begun his career in the New York underground scene, Antony emerged with Antony and the Johnsons in 1998 and shot to prominence with the Mercury Prize-winning album I am a Bird Now. Since then critical acclaim has followed each of his projects including the albums The Crying Light and Swanlights.
His performances have ranged from collaborations with symphony orchestras and performance artists to last summer's The Life and Death of Marina Abramovi?, directed by Robert Wilson.
Meltdown 2012 sees Antony create a line-up of twelve days of music, debate and performance that reflects his interests, influences and passions.

Elizabeth Fraser is a Scottish singer best known as the vocalist for the pioneering alternative rock group Cocteau Twins. Described by critic Jason Ankeny as 'an utterly unique performer whose swooping, operatic vocals relied less on any recognizable language than on the subjective sounds and textures of verbalized emotions,' Fraser's distinctive singing earned much critical praise. She was once described as 'the voice of God.' Fraser's singing veers between semi-comprehensible lyrics and abstract mouth music; fans have oft-debated the inspiration and meaning of her lyrics, but over the years she has been reluctant to discuss such topics. Fraser has a soprano vocal range.
