"...In a world dominated by one dimensional pop music, Alex Ross-Iver defines everything that a music maverick should epitomise. His soul mates are the likes of Brian Eno, Phillip Glass, The Knife, Kraftwerk, Yello, through to Yonderboi and La Dusselldorf. In fact pretty much anything that doesn't fit neatly into a packaged music box that makes the listener feel comfortable and at ease. Alex Ross-Iver truly pushes the boundaries of experimentalism. It was his pulsating experimentalism and thought provokingly complex musical compositions which came to the attention of two equally maverick musicians. The Icelandic pair of Gisli Kristjansson, part of the hugely successful Waterfall production team out of Norway and a Number 1 hit maker in his own right, and the wonderfully talented Eliza Newman, whose band, Bellatrix, gained huge critical acclaim releasing albums on Bjork's , 'Bad Taste' label, turning her into one of Scandinavia's most talked about and sought after vocalists. Together they tracked Alex Ross-Iver down and asked if they could create a soundscape for one of his most complex tracks, 'Haused 2'. A track that if it were a book many would say it was impossible to turn it into a movie! Nevertheless, Gisli, Eliza and Alex have ended up creating a track which takes the listener on a magical mystery tour of their imaginations. 'Fire Inside' captures a feeling of tripping through clouds, chased by a Bond villain, finally ending up landing on an ice cap of emotion with a breathless vocal that oozes passion and dreams! This track embraces all the most magical elements of pop and avant garde experimentalism and will set Alex Ross-Iver on the road to finally translating success in the UK for a composer of thought provoking music that runs contrary to musical trends and passing fashions." - MusicCrown Magazine

EXCLUSIVE MODEL INTERVIEW - Chloe Jasmine Whichello
Give me some basic information about yourself. (Where are you from? Where do/did you go to high school/college? What are some of your main interests and hobbies? etc )
I am quintessentially British but have Scandinavian Origins -( I attended school from the age of two. & a variety of boarding schools up to the age of 17. As a beneficial education is such a focus in my family)
- How would you describe your professional interests?
Being a creative soul I enjoy literature, travel, gastronomie ( I have been vegetarian my entire life), writing, music (Jazz/Blues/Classical/Funk) Dramatic arts/Theatre, Singing, Photography & my one vice: Smoking.
- What's your background in modeling? When and why did you get started? Was it for the glamour? The money? Pure kicks?
I was scouted on reality TV at 16 - and immediately signed to a London agency . I exchanged my dream of being a lawyer to model professionally at 18- & it enrages me when the profession is viewed as "easy" as it is a fairweather industry where people are replaced in a heartbeat, and one is constantly on the go, shooting in bad conditions , exposed to constant criticism and competition, navigate complex directions & hold poses for many hours; Pulling out high quality images each time and mantaining a good work ethic is vital.
I wouldn't swap it for the world, honestly. On a shoot, it's always wonderful to work with a talented, determined, charismatic team, and come away satisfied and content.
As this IS my primary occupation, I would have to say the money- as rock and roll it would be to live on the side of the road, suffering for my art, I would rather not :)
- Who are some of your favorite models and designers ?
The iconic Coco Chanel. Her life is and feminine wearable designs fascinate me. Christian Dior. As he revoulutionized the way women dressed post war- and the brand still remains timeless with its lines of elegant prêt-a-porter, accesories and haute couture ball gowns. Vivienne Westwood, an amazingly eccentric designer - with her fiery and unique personality and flamboyant creations. Valentino who constantly create emchanting Red carpet fairy tale dresses. I am a devout believer in "Dress to express" I have a very quirky and vintage style: There are some pieces women shouldn't be without :The LBD for example.
I truly admire models such as Claudia Schiffer, Cindy Crawford , Kate Moss, Gisele Bunchen, Heidi Klum and Tyra Banks - They are entreprenears, not one hit wonders.
- Which fashion magazines, websites, blogs, and catalogs do you visit most often?
The Bible of course.. Vogue magazine
- Do you have any other experience in the fashion industry (writing, photography, marketing, etc.)?
I am the author of the eponymous "Chloe Jasmine Whichello" coffee table book. A collaboration of images and fusion of poetry with the brilliant Damien Lovegrove.
http://www.waterstones.com/waterstonesweb/products/damien+lovegrove/chloe-jasmine+whichello/chloe-jasmine+whichello/8393235/ Photography is a strong hobby of mine- the idea of capturing moments forever. I am also a qualified hair and make up artist.

A fantastic result and a contented team - the feeling that you have done a good job is priceless. As a model you are an artist, constantly creating.

Occasional Fatigue :) You just have to get on with it and make it happen.

Too many - totally depends on ones mood... :) I am a fan of the "Greats" Sinatra, Fitzgerald, Gillespie, Coltrane. Like balm for the soul.
- Anything else you'd like to say?
