Bath, England's singer/composer/keyboardist Allison Goldfrapp began exploring music as a part of her studies as a Fine Art Painting major at Middlesex University, mixing sound, visuals and performances in her installation pieces. While she was still in college, she appeared on her friend Tricky's 1995 debut 'Maxinquaye,' which led to appearances on albums from other cutting-edge electronic artists, including Orbital's 'Snivilisation' and Add N to X's 'Avant Hard.' By the late '90s, Goldfrapp began honing her own compositions; one of her friends passed some of her demos on to composer Will Gregory. Finding much in common in their musical tastes and approaches, the duo took Allison's surname as the name for their collaboration.
