Lisa Gerrard makes music on her own and formerly with Dead Can Dance.
“This music is probably the most un-mainstream work available, and it’s never going to be mainstream and it’s never going to be commercial. You give this work to MTV and they just look at it and say, ‘Thank you, no.’ It’s always going to be like that. This is the work I make. If I want to do something mainstream, darling, I know what to do. I have no interest in this. For me, the work process is humiliating enough without lying to myself. It’s not to say that mainstream music is a lie – I have no ability to judge where other people surrender and how. My relationship with the work is where it is, and if it doesn’t fit into the mainstream it doesn’t – that’s something external to the work.”
