Name of project: Waterfalls.

Real name: Amber Johnson.

Age (of project): Three and a half years.

Hometown: Wellington.

Associated acts: Elan Vital, Embedded Figures, Disasteradio, Eyeliner, Strange Stains, Ducklingmonster and Lady Lazer Light.

Musical guilty pleasure: I don't feel guilt about any music I like but if I was at a party and I Youtube DJ'ed some of my domestic high rotates - Musical Medleys (especially 'Hooked on Classics'), 'Joy' by Apollo 100,  'Love is Blue' by Paul Mauriat, 'The Piper' by ABBA, Meatloaf everything, 'Schnuffel Bunny' by Snuggle Bunny - this possibly wouldn't fly.

Formative musical experience: Being on a high after performing Luciano Berio's Sequenza 1 for Flute back in the early 2000s and finding myself alone in the Adam Concert Room and improvising with abandon for the first time. Just letting loose and being enthralled by the acoustics of the hall and creating beautiful wild sounds.
