:: a sensitive bookworm who gets excited about music, ideas, and radical politics ::
I am an introverted trans* lesbian who is trying to come out of her shell a little more socially. Originally from Ohio, I'm now at Florida Atlantic University in Boca Raton, working towards a Ph.D. in quantum gravity and quantum cosmology (theoretical physics) and critical theory / gender theory / post-colonial theory / womens studies (after a M.Sc. and B.A. in physics & astronomy, with an almost-major in mathematics, and instigator behind my college's film program).
I'm also a DJ, composer, and producer for The T3Records Network (as well as Def Jux-affiliates Paramanu Recordings and TornFormDrawing (TFD), and Soulseek Records), as well as a screenwriter-director-producer for PsyDys Media.
I would sign to labels like Mush, Warp, Def Jux, Marine Parade, Ghostly International, etc.
My debut album, "Chisei" (as TWISTOR «重力の影»), should be coming out soon, after a long string of mixes and EPs.
"William Hooker used to say, 'Who speaks through you?' Records speak through you, you play a mix. It's a reflection of your taste, so it's collective and you become part of the mix. What we do is take the original and then change it. The new instrument is the human mind itself because you can riff off all these memories"
- Paul D. Miller
My role models are BT, DJ Spooky, and Imogen Heap, along with Brian Swimme, Ken Wilber, and Vandana Shiva (amongst many others).
When I'm not making music or writing equations, I like to study integral theory, the effects of physics on religion / philosophy and gender / sexuality studies and (deep) ecology, especially how deconstruction and even queer theory is a natural side-effect of quantum theory, for which I'm slowly writing a book, "becominginfinite: Chaosophy and the Quantum Foundations of Mysticism, Ecology, and Critical Theory".
I was raised a FGC Quaker (SPICE: simplicity, peace, integrity, community, and equality), but now most identify with trans-integral theory / deep ecology / chaosophy / nondualism, in the tradition of Brian Swimme, Ken Wilber, Ervin Laszlo, Zen/Daoism/PLUR, etc..... still with strong Quaker connections.
"A religion old or new, that stressed the magnificence of the universe as revealed by modern science, might be able to draw forth reserves of reverence and awe hardly tapped by the conventional faiths. Sooner or later, such a religion will emerge."
— Carl Sagan
"I believe in Spinoza's God who reveals Himself in the orderly harmony of what exists, not in a God who concerns himself with fates and actions of human beings."
— Albert Einstein
Roughly INTJ, homeschooled/unschooled, got into college at 13. I'm trained in Therapeutic Touch and hypnosis, and I'm working on becoming a reiki master :)
I grew-up on various permaculture-based farms and ecovillages around Ohio - so I'm kind of an ecology freak :)
I've been to the UK (2005), Australia (2007), Ireland (2008) [where I was a WWOOFer, mostly in West Cork ], Sicily (2010), Poland (2011), The Bahamas (2012), and Canada (several times), and am completely in love with all of them :)
