Taking on your biggest gig yet? Get ready to level up.

Understanding how to run your show from A-Z will empower you to take command of your show, your way.

SHIFT YOUR MINDSET

A solid set can be a game changer.

But what really allows artists to evolve in this world of ever-changing technology?

The answer: the right mindset, proper tools, and a squad. Because in this industry, your network is just as important as your net worth.

Once you have these elements, your live show can take you places you never thought were possible.

LED BY LAURA ESCUDÉ

LE-130.jpg

Artist + Entrepreneur + Live Show Programmer

From technology to artistry to production to 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 sleekly futuristic style and the raw emotion Escudé 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.
