Cosey Fanni Tutti is a multidisciplinary artist, performer, visual artist, singer, composer and musician. Between 1969 and 1975, she has participated in the activities of the COUM Transmissions art group with Genesis P-Orridge. In 1975 she was one of the founding members of the cult group Throbbing Gristle, renowned as the original creator and pioneer of industrial music. Since the group’s first dissolution in 1981, she has also been a member of the influential electronic music duo Chris&Cosey. In addition to her activities, she has also pursued a career as a stripper in the erotic movie industry and specialized magazines. She drew from it series of images that she later reintroduced into her work in visual arts.
Last November, the industrial icon announced her first solo album since 1982, TUTTI. The album’s eight tracks were originally composed for the soundtrack to the autobiographical film Harmonic Coumaction, and were staged live last year as part of a series of events that accompanied the COUM Transmissions retrospective that opened Hull UK City of Culture 2017. For the launch of the album, the music was reworked and parts of the original tracks were re-recorded, resulting in a work that is different from documentary and live performances.
The album is today available via Conspiracy International, here
