She moved to Germany and studied Art History before starting to record sampling sounds and collages for art videos and experimental films. She then relocated to Belgium to act in a few short films.
“Fire / Failure” is her unique album, recorded around 2000. This “soundtrack-like” experiment is pure weirdo dadaistic sampling creation, combinated with distorted African recording cassettes apparently coming from her family’s house. We know for sure that a video was shot during the recordings…but it strangely disappeared.
The music was only available on a couple of “homemade tapes” she sent to a few local record labels around 2000. The tape was named ‘Gail Ghimp – Fire / Failure Soundtrack’ and was never released… After that, Gail became suddenly silent…
She died in 2012 of a heart attack.
She was 30.
