SOME ARTISTS PUSH BUTTONS.
INNOVATIVE ARTISTS PUSH BOUNDARIES.
You want to CREATE THE ULTIMATE LIVE SHOW…
BUT WHERE DO YOU START?
There’s a reason why most DJs limit themselves to just two tracks.
What is the best way to amp up your set with more effects, sampling, and select vocals?
When you are able to improvise with confidence, your technical capabilities are revived and then you can fully engage with your audience.
Just because you are a singer doesn’t mean you have to be at the mercy of technology – or another band member/engineer.
How would it feel to trigger your own songs? How about controlling your own vocal effects on the fly?
This is where you go from singer-songwriter to reimagining your entire future live set.
It’s time to flex your production skills – on stage.
How would it feel to have total control and not feel like you’re just pressing play?
A solid performance can be a game changer. With the right mindset, proper tools, and a community, your live show can take you places you never thought were possible.

LEARN DIRECTLY FROM LAURA HOW SHE ELEVATES THE INDUSTRY’S TOP ARTISTS
LED BY LAURA ESCUDÉ
Artist + Entrepreneur + Live Show Programmer
From technology to artistry to production to show design to wellness, there are few people who understand the complete spectrum of the music industry. Laura Escudé is one of these rare individuals.
Based in Los Angeles, Escudé is an artist, innovator, entrepreneur and live show designer with a deep understanding of complex technology, a profound passion for music and art and a unique talent for fusing the two. Career highlights include designing shows for Kanye West and Jay Z, opening for Miguel on his 2015 Wildheart tour and building a thriving international business populated by top-tier professionals.
As an artist, Escudé executes this mission through music. She’s released myriad albums, singles and EPs under the name Alluxe, synthesizing her skills as a classically trained violinist and her prowess as an avant-garde electronic producer. Now making music under her own name, Escudé’s forthcoming Transmute EP is her most intimate work to date, capturing the sound and feel of a woman who’s examined the darkest parts of herself and come out the other end transformed. Escudé’s live performances are known for their sleek futuristic style and the raw emotion she elicits from her musical machines. She’s done official remixes for artists including M83 and Polica, with her violin playing featured on albums by Big Grams, Kanye West and Jay Z and many more.
