EA’s stance on “Digital Performance Right in Sound Recordings and Ephemeral Recordings” from 2002.

Here’s the original PDF EA had for download on Traitor Records (17kb).

You can learn the background of this on Copyright.gov (they mention EA briefly near the end).

Declaration of Emilie Autumn

I, Emilie Autumn, declare as follows:

1. I am making this declaration in support of the motion of Live365 for a Stay the Librarian of Congress’s Order setting rates for webcasting royalties. Except as stated, I have personal knowledge of the facts in this declaration and could testify competently to them in a court of law.

2. I am an independent recording artist and performer. I began performing professionally as a classical violinist at age 12, and now record both classical music and adult alternative rock music I call “fantasy rock.”

Silverfox Radio Featured Artist Interview, July, 30, 2002

Silverfox: How did you get your start in the music industry and what made you decide to go in a different direction with classical music?

EA: When I was four, I decided I wanted to play the violin. I didn’t have any concept of what that meant, the competition, the concert halls; I just thought it looked like fun. As I grew up, my dream was to travel the world playing Mozart and Prokofieff, but as I got nearer to my goal, it began to look less and less attractive to me. Much of the music we term “classical” is brilliant, far more brilliant than anything that’s being created now, in 2002, but the classical industry itself is a horrible machine, soul-killing and manipulating. They (professors, critics, etc.) take these musical masterpieces and tell everyone to play them in exactly the same way, and they do their best to stomp out any flame of creativity in anyone, for fear of being overthrown. I know I sound like a conspiracy theorist, but any classical music student who hasn’t been utterly brainwashed (a lot of them have) can tell you the same thing. Then, the industry complains that they have lost the interest of the general public, when the fact is that they are collectively so boring it’s bloody painful. I could not work within the constrictions of the classical industry, so, after a lot of heartache, I chose to embrace everything that made me different from them and see where that took me. It was at that point, in my teens, that I began to sing, write songs as well as symphonies, and develop my knowledge of electronics and recording. The result is, I think, a mixture of everything that I love, from the ancient music that I grew up on, to the rock music that inspired me, to the futuristic sounds I hear in my head.

"Sailor Lolita" Skirt
This charming sailor button skirt sports pink lace trim on the hem and faux pockets. A most demure length, ending just above the knee. Best of all, this is perfect for the coming cool weather as the black fabric is nice and thick, not at all flimsy. Beautifully tailored and rather aristocratic.
Size Small
Special Features: ribbon and lace trim

"Here is how I do interviews, truth: In bed, champagne, and sauteed lemon broccoli. The more you know…" - EA (via Twitter)
I just wanted to tell you that Silverfox interview is no longer available through Wayback Machine so thanks for posting it. <3 inmydreamsifeelimmortal

I was going to respond with a simple “you’re welcome,” then I realized you might have to go back (or forward) a bit to find a snapshot with a working link.

So, even though I posted the whole interview on this tumblr here’s a link that still works for those who like to go to the source: EA Silverfox Interview 2004

Thanks!

Silverfox Radio Interview, 2004

You can still find this interview via the WayBack Machine. But I’m posting it here in case it disappears

 

SFR-What has changed in your music since we last spoke with you in 2002?

EA: That’s difficult in that I’ve got a few musical directions going on at once, so while my direction as a classical musician is still similar to what it was, my direction as a jazz artist has veered off from my direction as a rock artist, so that the jazz now has it’s own record coming out in the form of ‘The Jane Brooks Project,’ and the rock is focusing on her next album and going a bit more electronica this time.

Can you tell me anything about Silverfox Radio Featured Artist Interview? Where did you read/hear it? is it still available online? Please, I'm dying yo know it! Anonymous

Silverfox Radio isn’t around anymore (I think). They interviewed EA in 2002 and then again in 2004-ish. This newsletter mentions the addition of the 2004 interview to EA’s press page. I may have both interviews knocking around somewhere, I’ll post them if I find them.

"Pixie Dust Day Spa" Top
Serged corset top rides high under the bust, and bears the image of Tinkerbell, our fave pixie of all. Oddly enough, she&#8217;s pimping a Day Spa, what&#8217;s up with that??? Wonder if it&#8217;s legal&#8230;anyway! D-rings you can attach your own charms to, and punky black with silver trim accentuates this beautifully hand-dye piece. And the best part? Your own pixie wings attached to the back to flutter when you walk!
Size Small to Medium
Special Features: punk trim, d-rings, pixie wings, hand-dyed, classic print

Both sex and sweetness are reborn in this reconstructed tee.

Flounces of shimmering gauze, satin ribbons, silk flowers, and dangling garters top it off.

@captainmaggots: One of the greatest services you can do for this world is be a good friend to all those around you.
@emilieautumn: How is this so automatic, 1st nature, for some, yet something that others need to grow up into & often never do? Wormhole...
‏@captainmaggots: that's why we have each other <3
@emilieautumn: Well, I suppose that, if the only thing you can count on in this world is a Crumpet, things ain't so bad;)...
