Venus in Chains 100 is a music project created and founded by me, Isobella Caroline Boucher. It has been described by some as an Avant Garde project. It is an explosive music project with a visionary outlook meant to surpass limits by creating a chain of music visual works of art, each representing love, beauty, and freedom during this time of 2016 with many brutal and devastating events. “Venus in Chains 100” is a way of representing love, unity, peace, hope and compassion thru music and visual art.

Well, with the Venus in Chains 100 project, there is a diversified genre of music style, From Jazz, Rock to Hip-Hop. For me , as the artist “Isobella Caroline Boucher” I would say experimental Indie Pop, but it has been described as without limits, gorgeous, haunting and most of all different (not mainstream). To me, I seem to create music more to feelings within the moment, so it would be my own interpretation of sound and music. I put my heart and emotions into every piece of music I do, or I would not be creating music.
4 – When and why did you start this music project?
Since this interview is primarily about “Venus in Chains 100” I created this project in the summer, 2 months and a half to be exact. I was actually listening to another artist and the video captured my eye, the filming, and something sparked inside my visionary imagination and I acted upon it. I came up with Venus in Chains 100 as a venue for other artists, Indie artists, to showcase their work and also have a cause and reason behind it. Peace and love in a time where there is so many devastation going on this Earth. Each artist, creating music to symbolize that harmony within difference. By difference, I also mean I did not select artists by similar style, the difference and uniqueness adds to the beauty.
5 – Do you also collaborate with other artists. such as singers and producers?
Yes, I do. With this particular project “Venus in Chains 100” the list is high. The list is as follows, Bobby Craymer, Nigel Bell, Sara Mae Villa, Brenda Bennet, Mike Sargent, Ridade , Tony Sokol, Suga Bee of Carolina, Amanda Castro, Sam Cohen, Jonathan Newman, DSI, Peter Rees, Denardo Lee Gastin,Mark L, Songwriter Jake Anderssen, Lloyd David Lieberman and artist Alex Hale.
On a personal level for my music I love to collaborate with other artists and do.
6 – Where did you learn to create music?
I was self taught on composing music but due to my intense dance background, it came much easier. The art of sound, movement and creating music. Music is just within me. I love to sing, to write lyrics and compose.

Actually, no I usually am thinking of a person or something that has happened to me in the past as many artists do.
9 – Are you trying to share a particular message with your songs?
Yes, feelings, emotions and love. See, that is one question I do not usually think of when creating my songs.

One song “Drowning” a collaboration I did with a very gifted musician/composer Lloyd David Lieberman was in ode to the shooting in Orlando.
