“Awaken”, exemplifies her limitless innovation and devotion to sonic dexterity.” - Earmilk
Laura Escudé’s “Awaken” is out today worldwide on all major digital retailers and streaming services. This is the second single off the forthcoming EP Transmute due out on November 16th.
Laura Escudé is creative visionary, a CEO and the world’s most in demand controllerist and live show designer. She possesses a deep understanding of complex technology, a passion for music and art and a unique talent for fusing the two. She was the world's very first certified Ableton expert and trainer. Her work with Ableton has taken her all over the world working with artists such as Kanye West, Jay Z, Porter Robinson, Herbie Hancock, Charli XCX, Drake, Bon Iver and more. The demand for her work and time became so great that she started a company called Electronic Creatives - of which she is the CEO - and hired and trained a team of top tier programmers to serve her A-List client roster which now includes The Weeknd, Harry Styles,Camila Cabello, Vic Mensa, Porter Robinson, Kid Cudi, Iggy Azalea, Garbage, Charli XCX, the Yeah Yeah Yeahs, Logic, Selena Gomez and more. Escudé recently sat down with Ableton to give fans a look into creative and complex composing process via the Ableton One Series HERE.
In addition to being an artist and CEO, Escudé also lends her time and talents to mentoring and educating up and coming artists. She is a frequent guest lecturer at conferences and major universities all over the world. This fall she will be a featured speaker at the Ableton Loop conference, and a featured mentor for Red Bull’s Hack the Hits program, Spotify’s CO.LAB Series and the Berklee School of Music’s Signature Series. She will also be launching the Transmute online course later this year. A course she designed to teach her craft of live show design to students with a mix of wellness practices, so they can not only build and enhance their careers but live a balanced and healthy life.
Escudé has previously recorded and released music under the Alluxe moniker, and these two singles from the Transmute EP are the first works to be released as Laura Escudé since she went back to using her own name. The songs on this EP document the years Escudé has spent pulling back the layers of her psyche, tearing down the walls she built up to get to the person that she is at her core. Transmute is an intimate look into her journey of finding her voice.
“Awaken” is the point where Escudé experience freedom that comes with really knowing who you are. She no longer has to choose which role to play, that of entrepreneur, an artist and a performer. She only needs to be herself. This song sees Escudé embracing all aspects of herself and living life with clarity, gratitude, awareness and depth. Illness has become vibrancy. Dark has become light, and nothing is more symbolic of this transformation than by giving up her former stage name, Alluxe, and becoming Laura Escudé.
Escudé will be performing “Awaken” and the rest of the tracks on Transmute live at the #TransmuteInteractive event at Apogee Studios in Los Angeles on November 13th. For more information or to RSVP click HERE.
