The City of Vancouver is a coastal city in south-western British Columbia, on the traditional territory of the Squamish, Musqueam andTsleil-Waututh Nations. The downtown core of the city is on a peninsula bordered by English Bay and Burrard Inlet.

Metro Vancouver encompasses 21 municipalities in the surrounding region. The area is the delta of the mighty Fraser River, which flows into the Salish Sea.

First-time GRAMMY winner details the multiphonic vocal technique she applied to the recording of her Best RB Performance-winning "Something" with Snarky Puppy

(As told to Roy Trakin)

I was hopeful this year about winning, mostly because of the multiphonic component of what I was able to do, which I don't believe has ever been done in popular music. When Jimmy Jam announced we'd won, my heart actually did stop for one second. It was surreal, pure adrenaline. Every music lesson [I] ever took, all the scales [I] ever learned, the people happy for [me] sitting in that room — [it was] total elation.

The collaboration with Snarky Puppy came about through "Sput," Robert Searight, the drummer for the band, who's also a GRAMMY-winning producer. The band invited me to choose a song I'd either written or recorded before and play it with them in a new arrangement. I flew in, we rehearsed it once or twice and recorded it at the Jefferson Center in Roanoke, Virginia, in front of a live audience, who were arrayed around the band on the stage like after a family dinner, all wearing headphones. Going seven minutes-plus gave me the room to stretch out and do different things. The hook was that I was able to sing multiple chords at once. On the YouTube video you can see me realizing, in the moment, how to control that process. It took six minutes to get to that point, but it was an incredible, expansive experience. I went to a different place vocally to be able to manipulate those chords. People are still trying to figure out how I'm doing it. And I don't even know. It's just something I've been doing since I was 12–13 years old.

On that particular take, two distinct tones are coming out, and then we change keys and I sing two tones in a different keys. I never really used it before on a record, because I wasn't sure how to control it, and people would probably think it was fake anyway, so I only do it live, and that just happened to be the right venue. The organist, Cory Henry, and I decided before we got to that vamp that he would go wherever he was going and I'd follow him. His playing really encouraged me to come to that space. The great part of the performance is it's a real conversation between musicians. The fact [that] I was able to stretch to that point is a phenomenal gift. And it's amazing we were acknowledged for it. … I think that might've been the second take, but we performed it all the way through, with real musicians, no Auto-Tune, [we left] it as is. We weren't out to make it perfect.

I've asked people on Facebook and Twitter how they [think I] do this vocally, and [haven't] gotten one taker. I've studied the Tuvan throat singers, the Bulgarian Women's Choir and Tibetan monks — these mystical, magical people who are doing some sort of weird harmonics with their vocals. I'm trying to figure out if I can use some of that in what I do.

Secure and Resilient Societies Global Challenge

A secure society is one that maintains a stable social order in which its citizens, assets and economy are protected.

Societal resilience is the ability to resist, or prepare and recover from adversity, particularly shocks, to maintain that secure state of society. The SRS Challenge conducts research to support the creation and maintenance of integrated social, technical, economic, and political systems that enable societies to be secure and resilient.

The research is conducted in three themes:

Disaster Risk Management
Defence and Security
Population Resilience

The themes are interrelated and are all cross-cut by sub-themes of Narrative and Communication, Sensing and Analysis, and Resource Management.

The overriding characteristic of all three themes is a complex and uncertain environment, in which many heterogeneous systems interact to produce outcomes that are difficult to predict in advance and do not have a fixed end state. In an academic sense, the problems are transdisciplinary; in an operational sense, they are multi-faceted, dynamic and frequently involve actors with significantly different worldviews.

Disaster Risk Management

Recent decades have seen an unprecedented growth in the levels of urbanisation thus making cities at the frontline of global disaster risk. Cities (many of which are located in hazard-prone areas) are extremely vulnerable to the effects of natural hazards (with the frequency and severity of climate-induced hazards being particularly on the increase) and human-induced threats (such as terrorism and crime as well as poor construction practices). It is therefore critical that cities, infrastructure and buildings are developed in a resilient as well as sustainable manner.

The Disaster Risk Management Theme promotes research that not only contributes to the development and operation of the cities but also to the deeper understanding of hazards, methodologies and stakeholders (including the general public) that manage, work and live in these cities – and are affected by disasters. The DRM theme takes a holistic multi-hazard multi-stakeholder approach to disasters and focuses on resilience to shocks as well as ‘slow-onset’ disasters.

The theme includes multi-disciplinary approaches to: anticipation, preparedness, prevention, response, and recovery with respect to a variety of natural hazards and human-induced threats. Areas of particular strength for Loughborough University’s researchers are flooding, earthquakes, chemical and explosive detection, disaster risk reduction for the built environment, and building resilience.

The Theme’s research focuses on:

Defence and Security

The security of society is underpinned by effective defence capabilities, which require the integration of people, processes, infrastructure, equipment, and logistics; usually within highly complex, but reliable systems. The armed forces provide the fighting capability to defend the nation but, increasingly, they support civil resilience through humanitarian aid, counter-terrorism, and emergency response to major disasters. Furthermore, societal security relies on protection provided by civil authorities and other agencies. Increasingly, the boundaries between military and civilian protection are becoming blurred.

Research in this theme includes science and engineering technological contributions to capabilities, human and sociological aspects of defence capability, and systems integration.

Various technology contributions have included autonomous systems, wearable sensors, communications and signal processing, high energy systems, CBRN and toxicology, simulation, battle damage resilience, aircraft control systems, and systems architecting.

Work on processes has covered capability engineering and procurement processes.

Human factors research has included areas such as pilot training and training systems, team composition and performance, development of assistive technologies such as head-up displays, exercise, performance and rehabilitation, motivation, command and control, and human-machine interaction.

The effect of social media on defence and security has also been a feature of Loughborough research.

Loughborough work has contributed to UK defence (government and industry), and to NATO research activities.

The complexity of the defence environment is increasing, so that transdisciplinary approaches are required to deal with hybrid threats. Hybrid warfare is characterised as a combination of conventional, irregular, and cyber warfare that may include both state and non-state actors. The term describes the growing complexity of the current threat environment and the security challenges of the future. Only a transdisciplinary approach can address the intellectual challenges that hybrid warfare poses, requiring the engagement of a wide range of expertise from the technical and social sciences disciplines.
