'The Devil's Carnival': 'Repo: The Genetic Opera' Director Darren Bousman's Labor Of Love
Moviefone Blog - almost 5 years
Director Darren Bousman ("Saw II-IV," "Repo: The Genetic Opera") is saying goodbye to Hollywood studios -- for his new flick "The Devil's Carnival," anyway. After he and writer Terrance Zdunich poured their hearts and souls into cult classic "Repo: The Genetic Opera" only to have the studios give it a paltry two-theater release, they decided to take things into their own hands with "The Devil's Carnival," a macabre rock musical eagerly anticipated by "Repo"'s devoted fanbase. Of course, no studio means no money, no distribution and a heck of a lot of work for Bousman and company. "It's all us. It's four dudes in a house updating the website, putting the merch out there, booking the theaters. There is no conglomerate behind us," Bousman explains. This isn't the first time he's taken things into his own hands. After Lionsgate relegated "Repo" to just two theaters, Bousman begged them for the rights to run his own screenings for a month, and concocted a fun road show that attracted a ...

    THIRTIES
  • 2014
    Age 34
    In August 2014, Autumn said she had developed copper toxicity and was no longer vegan.
    More Details Hide Details She cares for two pet rats, Sir Edward and Basil, and a cat named Fish/Fishy, and endorses companies such as Manic Panic and Samson Tech. Autumn wrote a novel entitled The Asylum for Wayward Victorian Girls, which was self-published in 2010. Because of the book's nature and possible autobiographical parts, she claimed its release was delayed because some did not want it published. The book incorporated anthropomorphized rats and leeches, and the diary of a fictional Victorian-era asylum inmate named "Emily". Autumn said one of the main messages was that many of the patients were not insane and that the subject of mental illness remains misunderstood. Studio albums Instrumental albums
    In 2014, it was announced that she would be appearing at a handful of dates on the 2014 Vans Warped Tour with an installation called "The Asylum Experience", which will include music, burlesque, circus sideshow attractions and theater.

Her vocal work has been compared to Tori Amos, Kate Bush, and The Creatures. She has released two instrumental albums (On a Day and Laced/Unlaced), and four featuring her vocals: Enchant, Opheliac, A Bit o' This & That, and "Fight Like A Girl". The 2003 album Enchant drew on "new age chamber music, trip hop baroque, and experimental space pop". Autumn layers her voice frequently, and incorporates electronics and electronic effects into her work on Enchant; she also combines strings and piano for some songs, while others feature mainly the piano or violin. The 2006 release Opheliac featured "cabaret, electronic, symphonic, new age, and good ol' rock & roll (and heavy on the theatrical bombast)".

    More Details Hide Details She decided to re-release On a Day as Laced because she "felt that it made a nice contrast to the metal shredding fiddle album, "Unlaced", and loved that it was the perfect representation of "then" versus "now".
  • 2006
    Age 26
    On October 9, 2006, she appeared on the Adult Swim cartoon Metalocalypse as a guest artist and on the subsequent 2007 album The Dethalbum.

    She released the limited-edition, preview EP Opheliac through her own label, Traitor Records, in spring 2006; while the Opheliac EPs were being shipped, Autumn claimed that her offices had been robbed, causing the delay in the album release and the shipping of the EPs.
    More Details Hide Details According to her, Opheliac "was the documentation of a completely life-changing and life-ending experience". At one time, Autumn did have plans to film a music video for her song "Liar", which included "bloody bathtubs".

    More Details Hide Details Much of Autumn's violin work did not get released on the album; she commented: "This had to do entirely with new producers taking over the project after our little vacation in France, and carefully discarding all of our sessions."
  • 2003
    Age 23
    On February 26, 2003, she released her concept album Enchant, which spanned multiple musical styles: "new-age, pop and trip hop chamber music".
    More Details Hide Details Written during her late teenage years, Enchant revolved around the supernatural realm and its effect on the modern-day world. Autumn labeled it as "fantasy rock", which dealt with "dreams and stories and ghosts and faeries who'll bite your head off if you dare to touch them". The faery-themed "Enchant Puzzle" appeared on the artwork of the album; her reward for the person who would solve it consisted of faery-related items. Her bandmates consisted of cellist Joey Harvey, drummer Heath Jansen, guitarist Ben Lehl, and bassist Jimmy Vanaria, who also worked on the electronics. At the same time of Enchants release, Autumn had several side projects: Convent, a musical group for which she recorded all four voices; Ravensong, "a classical baroque ensemble" that she formed with friends in California; and The Jane Brooks Project, which she dedicated to the real-life, 16th-century Jane Brooks—a woman executed for witchcraft.
    Through her own independent label Traitor Records, Autumn debuted with her classical album On a Day: Music for Violin & Continuo, followed by the release in 2003 of her album Enchant.
    More Details Hide Details She appeared in singer Courtney Love's backing band on her 2004 America's Sweetheart tour and returned to Europe. She released the 2006 album Opheliac with the German label Trisol Music Group. In 2007, she released Laced/Unlaced; the re-release of On a Day appeared as Laced with songs on the electric violin as Unlaced. She later left Trisol to join New-York-based The End Records in 2009 and release Opheliac in the United States, where previously it had only been available as an import. In 2012, she released the album Fight Like a Girl. She played the role of Painted Doll in Darren Lynn Bousman's 2012 film The Devil's Carnival, as well as its 2015 sequel, Alleluia! The Devil's Carnival.
  • 2001
    Age 21
    She released the 2001 EP Chambermaid while finishing Enchant—she alternatively labeled the musical style on Chambermaid as "fantasy rock" and cabaret—and wrote the 2001 charity single "By the Sword" after the events of September 11, 2001.
    More Details Hide Details According to her, the song is about strength, not violence; the act of swearing by the sword represents "an unbreakable promise to right a wrong, to stay true".
    As part of a recording project, Autumn traveled to Chicago, Illinois, in 2001, and decided to stay because she enjoyed the public transportation system and music scene there.

  • 1997
    Age 17
    Through it, she debuted with her classical album On a Day: Music for Violin & Continuo, which she recorded in 1997 when she was seventeen years old; its title refers to the fact that the album took only a day to record.
    More Details Hide Details It consists of her performing works for the baroque violin accompanied by Roger Lebow on the baroque cello, Edward Murray on harpsichord, and Michael Egan on lute. She considered it "more of a demo despite its length", and released it as "a saleable album" after fans who enjoyed her "rock performances starting asking for a classical album so that they could hear more of the violin."
  • CHILDHOOD
  • 1979
    Born
    Emilie Autumn was born in Los Angeles, California, on September 22, 1979.
    More Details Hide Details Autumn grew up in Malibu, California, and according to her, "being surrounded by nature and sea had a lot to do with her development as a 'free spirit.'" Her mother worked as a seamstress, and she has said that her father was a German immigrant with whom she did not share a close relationship. While not musicians, her family enjoyed various genres of music. When she was four years old, she started learning the violin, and later commented: "I remember asking for a violin, but I don't remember knowing what one was. I might have thought it was a kind of pony for all I know, but I don't remember being disappointed." Four years later, Autumn made her musical debut as a solo violinist performing with an orchestra, and won a competition. At the age of nine or ten, she left regular school with the goal of becoming a world-class violinist. On her time at the school, she remarked, "I hated it anyway, what with the status as 'weird,' 'antisocial,' and the physical threats, there seemed to be no reason to go anymore, so I just didn't." She practiced eight or nine hours a day, had lessons, read a wide range of literature, participated in orchestra practice, and was home-schooled. Growing up, she owned a large CD collection of "violin concertos, symphonies, chamber music, opera, and a little jazz".
