Grady works as the archivist of the works of musical theorist Erv Wilson and as the cultural liaison for Anaphoria Island. His own work involves using concepts of meta-culture realized in composing music for his instrumental ensembles in Just Intonation and special recurrent sequences. These are often combined with shadow theatre, installation and film. He prefers the term mesotonal (over microtonal) to further define a relation with theatrical anthropology and medical ethnomusicology .
