LAURA ESCUDE AKA ALLUXE
LAURA ESCUDÉ is a visionary for the future of music. She is an acclaimed violinist, composer and sound designer, a music technologist, and one of the key players in the contemporary electronic beat scene working with a diverse list of artists and productions including Herbie Hancock, We Are the World, Kanye West, and Cirque du Soleil.
Tomorrow’s EVENT will showcase a special preview of Laura’s newest project and moniker ALLUXE in which she takes her numerous experiences and inspirations and pushes them to their limit. Alluxe was created as an alternate character that plays modern experimental dance music, drawing inspiration from bass music, hip hop, dubstep, trap, juke + experimental sounds.
Fresh from her European tour (debuting at Soundcrash in London, Tékéze’n in Paris and FEED in Berlin), Alluxe shows us her new crafted style complete with beats on the fly, violin loops and thrashes effects using the most hi tech gear—a one-of-a-kind LED controller that is it’s own light show. Expect to interface with her music directly as she enlists the crowd to help create her live sound, passing out Wii controllers that are synced with moving LEDs and trigger stutter effects and sub bass kick drums. Alluxe brings “live” to a whole new level!
