One of the newest members of the Evolution Control Committee is Assistant Frillypants, (aka Christy Brand). When left to her own devices, Frilly finds her way around the ECC laboratory as a writer, a performer and an artist, and she contributes heavily in some mysterious and not so mysterious ways to the band’s mission of music evolution. If you google her background, you’ll discover that for many years her evolutionary research kept her busy in the band’s music laboratory working on top secret projects. However, after a frightening beaker incident, Frilly decided to forego chemistry for something less fiery and emerged from the ECC’s secret underground lair to try her talents on stage.  Frilly’s debut performance with the ECC was in 2004 at the festival called Experimentaclub in Madrid, Spain. There she commanded the laptop with the seriousness of a spinster school marm from the fifties in a manner that elicited outrage and accolades. Her performance was so provocative that Anki, Experimentaclub’s curator and resident know it all, proclaimed, “Frilly! You are the rockstar!” And she has been putting the rock in the ECC’s live performances ever since.

Frilly’s accomplishments include:

  • Sewing under the influence
  • Renaming people against their own will
  • Producing benefits when nothing else would work
  • Creating shows that only bunnies could love
  • Teaching others how to photograph their best side
  • Playing footsie with the best of them
  • Riding on coattails with style
  • Staying up all night and only looking twice your age 

Little known facts:  Sometimes referred to as Princess Frillypants, the ECC’s Frilly doesn’t like her royal status to be known. When questioned about it, her official statement is that in Pamplonia, from whence she hails, everyone rules some domain and hers just happens to be the underwear drawer.
