Annemarie Borg work is eclectic in that it traverses both mixed media and the individual/separate forms of music, words, poetry, sounds and the visual arts. As Founder of the ‘Antara Project’ Borg uses art forms as tools to deal with her main concerns: the fundamental changes in social and cultural environments and how these affect the present day and generations to come.
“In today’s world we have created our own challenge, are we now up to the task of facing it? In this task what is the part Artists can assume?” (AMB). Antara aims to build a louder voice through Art and will result in a compilation album and a day conference/performance later this year. Borg’s ‘live’ shows range from classical repertoire to experimental music with organic sound-scapes, electronica, improvisation, often in collaboration with other musicians. Following from Thamnos, her current projects also include: “Still Motion” – a series of live performances starting on 17th of June in London. Two new album releases planned for this year are: ‘Stranger’ and ‘Intervals’. Born in Paris, with a French/Swedish background, Borg was a child musician who went on to study Business and International Law in Paris, and Music, Opera, Performance and Acting in London. www.annemarieborg.com www.informal4u.comwww.myspace.com/wordsand (Antara Project)
