Laura Escudé is right at  the sharp the edge of current music technology and controllerism, putting it to use on some of the largest stages - she’s just finished up the European leg of the Kanye West and Jay-Z Watch The Throne  tour where she’s been behind the scenes running Ableton Live for the music, backing tracks and live vocal effects that she designed into the production.

Being one of the first certified trainers for Ableton Live, she’s known for inventive programming and integration of Live into some major touring shows. Doors have opened for her combination of skills as a talented violinist and hardcore programmer, working with Kanye West, Bon Ivor, Herbie Hancock and Garbage as recent and repeat clients.

Laura also release and produces under her own right,  when she came to our new studios in Bath, she performed a couple of tunes for us live,  in-between chatting to Gaz Williams about her work and technology.

Laura’s latest solo project is Alluxe  in which she embraces new electronic hip hop together with some full-on 80’s fashion.

Great stuff; nice to see a 'Live' performer not faux-gesticulating.

At one point I had this vision that Jean Luc Ponty walked on from the left......would have been a nice WTF moment.
