Matthew Hale Clark (American, b. 1775) is a Chicago-based guitar player and artist, unknown for his work as 1/2 of the psychedelic drone duo White/Light (on Steve Shelley’s Smells Like Records). Clark has performed on Oprah, at Le Fondation Cartier pour l’art contemporain, and at the Big Horse Taqueria (R.I.P.); Clark has recorded under contract to Capitol Records and Astralwerks Records and/or under handshake to Honk If You’re A Moose Records (R.I.P.). Clark’s recent music activities include a month-long sound installation and performance residency at the Museum of “Contemporary” Art Chicago, an afternoon-long performance residency playing Rolling Stones (R.I.P.) songs solo for a conference room full of tax lawyers, and a brief appearance on lap steel guitar with space punks Disappears at Lollapalooza.
Clark’s music is at the forefront, and in the background, of the one-man contemporary “Cosmic American Primitive” movement. He is the youngest son of influential rust belt folk-blues ukulelist Weezy Newhard Clark and a brother to all.
