Name

Voltaire chose his pseudonym as he claims his namesake "saw through the hypocrisies of humanity and commented on them through satire. In essence, he was able to educate people about the world around them by making them laugh."[4]


Voltaire has been asked about his real name on multiple occasions. He tends to not answer such questions, either suggesting that his real name is in fact Voltaire, or otherwise avoiding the question.[5]


One theory Voltaire has been asked about is the name "Bernie Weinstein", based on a recurring character in his song lyrics and books. Bernie appears both as the boy who changes his name to Voltaire in What is Goth?[6] and as the "fool in the cape" in "The Vampire Club".[7] However, Voltaire has adamantly denied being Bernie Weinstein, and stated that "Bernie is just an archetypal character that I think really sums up a lot of the people I have met in the Goth scene over the years."[8]


According to the School of Visual Arts where he is employed as a professor, Voltaire's real name is Aurelio Voltaire Hernández.[1]


Youth

At the age of ten, Voltaire was inspired by the films of Ray Harryhausen (Jason and the Argonauts, The 7th Voyage of Sinbad), and began animating on a super 8 camera. By piecing together snippets of information from fanzines, he eventually was able to teach himself how to make foam rubber animation models and animate them. He got his first job as an animator at the age of seventeen with Parker Brothers.[3] As a child, he emigrated to New Jersey with his family. However, he states that he did not enjoy residing there.[2] It wasn't until he was an adult that he moved to New York, his current place of residence. Voltaire says that he loves New York, and that the only other place he would be happy living is Tokyo.[4] Ray Harryhausen, with creations from Clash of the Titans. ...

Musical career

Voltaire’s music has strong roots and connections to European folk as well as other influences such as the goth scene.[3] However, many listeners find his music hard to classify. Although it has a sound reminiscent of European folk music,[3] many people claim it to be darkwave; perhaps as this is a label often given to many other artists from Projekt Records, and a word often used to mean many things by the label themselves.[9] His music has also been linked to cabaret, with Lexicon Magazine using the term 'goth cabaret', possibly referring to dark cabaret, a term often used to describe some bands Voltaire cites as his influences. New Wave has also been used to describe Voltaire's music by some reviewers.[10] Voltaire describes his own music as- 'Music for a parallel universe where electricity was never invented and Morrissey is the queen of England.' He claims that bands and artists who influenced his music are- Rasputina, Morrissey, Tom Waits, Cab Calloway, and Danny Elfman.[11] “Folk song” redirects here. ...

The first band that Voltaire played in was called First Degree which he participated in during junior high school. At this age, he was a fan of Duran Duran, but then began listening to gothic music, most notably bands such as Bauhaus and The Cure. It wasn't until later that he began participating in the goth scene; it did not at first occur to him that there was a goth scene at all.[4] Duran Duran is an English Synth pop/pop band notable for a long series of popular singles and vivid music videos. ...

Art and writing career

In addition to Chi-Chian, Voltaire has also produced a graphic novel series called Oh My Goth!, also known as OMG!, started out as his own little religious tracts inspired by Jack Chick. It started as 8 page booklets which included him being chased by minions of Satan as they would try to prevent him from playing his next show. These short pieces would often lead to information about his next show. After two issues of the Chi-Chian series were published, he convinced Sirius Entertainment to publish his Oh My Goth! series, which included four issues that where later molded into a graphic novel.
