In the Mix // Wax Idols

Who: Hether Fortune of Wax Idols
Where she was born: Mars
Where she lives now: Hell
What she does: Musician/writer

How she capture ideas:
I use whatever tools I have available at the moment the idea hits me; whether that means trying to write it down in code, making a voice memo in my phone, grabbing a guitar, making a sketch, etc.

If she were a sound:
The sound of a mermaid screaming underwater through a fire filter.

She believes in:
Myself and some other people too.

There’s too much of, and too little of:
Too much greed, not enough humanity.

If she could see social disruption:
The whole structure would go.

Something great she’s read:
“Exiled” by Edna St. Vincent Millay

Something great she’s seen:
David Bowie’s face

Heavy rotation:
Today, I listened to “Seconds” by Human League 6 times in a row.

She needs to change:
My mind.

Hether’s WILD wish:
I wish that I could leave the planet for a while and come back to a better world. I’d also like to have a translucent, opal-esque catsuit.
