The dark, heavy, throbbing electronic beats accented by voice effects in Anna's music compositions are influenced by Richie Hawtin (Plastikman); The bizarre, experimental side of Anna's work is influenced by Laurie Anderson; And the provocative themes, costumes, and girl-power attitude in Anna's concerts are inspired by Erotica-era Madonna.
