Describe what you do

I am a certified pyrotechnic angle grinding performance artist. In a nutshell

Talk us through your performance.

I taught myself how to angle grind 2 years ago in Vancouver. For the past 8 months I have been practicing contortion and last summer I became a certified pyrotechnician. The show is now moving into it’s next stage incorporating all three of these elements as well as adding my own vocals to perform live. I started out as of girl with a grinder and it’s naturally progressed into much more than that which I love. I used to come out grind my brains out to Ministry for 5-10 minutes and then take a bow. Now it’s definitely progressed into a whole new art form. I am starting to find more and more beauty in different ways a 7000 rpm Grinder can hit a metal plate attached to ones body.

How does music fit into what you do?

I used to sing in a few really bad cover bands in my early twenties. It was always something I felt I had in me I just didn’t have the footing to feel comfortable enough expressing myself musically for a very long time. Nor did I have the discipline to do it well.

With grinding it was the step in the right direction of learning how to bring what is inside of me to the outside for others to see and hopefully accept.

Now that music muscle I once feared to work out naturally has come out again and in a way I never knew it could become so prominent within the Grinding platform I built to express myself on. So now it’s all about working with the right producers that understand my show and can lay the proper tracks around my vocals.

Tell us what this music project that you are working on is?

I like to keep pretty much everything I do to myself until it’s finished. What I can say is that in March I will be debuting my 1st Grind Music Video. I have covered PJ Harvey’s “To Bring You My Love” in the studio and look forward to releasing online. I’m in works of my 2nd track as we speak and it looks like I will be recording that in Los Angeles this Spring. From there we should be seeing a 5 song EP come out before 2013. All being released through my own website.

Every song will be tailored around a different element to my show. As I have honed a few different skills over the years you will see a little bit of everything in the new shows to come this summer.

  5. The Zune concentrates on being a Portable Media Player. Not a web browser. Not a game machine. Maybe in the future it’ll do even better in those areas, but for now it’s a fantastic way to organize and listen to your music and videos, and is without peer in that regard. The iPod’s strengths are its web browsing and apps. If those sound more compelling, perhaps it is your best choice.

  7. This is getting a bit more subjective, but I much prefer the Zune Marketplace. The interface is colorful, has more flair, and some cool features like ‘Mixview’ that let you quickly see related albums, songs, or other users related to what you’re listening to. Clicking on one of those will center on that item, and another set of “neighbors” will come into view, allowing you to navigate around exploring by similar artists, songs, or users. Speaking of users, the Zune “Social” is also great fun, letting you find others with shared tastes and becoming friends with them. You then can listen to a playlist created based on an amalgamation of what all your friends are listening to, which is also enjoyable. Those concerned with privacy will be relieved to know you can prevent the public from seeing your personal listening habits if you so choose.
