LAURA ESCUDÉ RELEASES THE NEW EP 'TRANSMUTE'

LAURA ESCUDÉ RELEASES THE NEW EP TRANSMUTE

Laura Escudé’s journey comes full circle with the release of Transmute, the four song EP that documents Escudé’s  intimate journey into finding her own voice. Transmute is out today worldwide on all major digital retailers and streaming services.

“....she is crafting her own unique blend of electronica and classical music which she calls “future classical” - Earmilk

Laura Escudé is the epitome of an innovator. She is an artist, a producer, 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 led to her to working with artists like Logic, Miguel, Kanye West, Jay Z, Porter Robinson, Herbie Hancock, Charli XCX, Drake, Bon Iver and more. The demand for her work and time led to her starting her company Electronic Creatives - of which she is the CEO. Electronic Creatives is made up a team of top tier programmers, hired and trained by Escudé to serve the company’s  A-List client roster which now includes The Weeknd, Harry Styles,Camila Cabello, Vic Mensa, Ariana Grande, Kid Cudi, Iggy Azalea, Garbage, Charli XCX, Yeah Yeah Yeahs, Selena Gomez and more.

Escudé has previously recorded and released music under the Alluxe moniker, and the Transmute EP is the very first body of work she is releasing under her name. In addition to her own work she has been commissioned for remixes by artists such as M83, Polica and Mr. Hudson. Her violin playing can be heard on “Watch the Throne,” on Hit-Boy’s mixtape, Big Grams, Kanye’s Dark Fantasy Tour. This new music retains her signature sound, a unique and intricate blend of classical and electronic music, and showcases her mastery in both worlds, as classically trained violinist and master technologist.

“In order to really understand the complexities and genuine music crafting that she is doing, you’ll have to immerse yourself into her work.” - Noisey

Transmute starts off with  “Control,” released as a single earlier this fall. The song examines the turmoil Escudé experienced of trying to control every aspect of her multifaceted life. To remain in control created stress and sickness, giving up control meant chaos. With the title of one of the world’s most in-demand live show designers Escudé was always on edge about doing and achieving more. It is when she surrendered control  that she started to make a shift away from things - relationships, substances, obligations – that didn’t serve her.

The EP’s powerful title track features pounding percussion and Escudé’s ethereal vocals and lyrics like “Don’t hold me down, it’s all in my head,” that she repeats realizing  her fears of not reaching her potential is what was holding her back from making her dreams a reality. The third track “Awaken” is Escudé not only realizing but embracing her new found freedom away from the mental roadblocks that had been hindering her from being her best self.  Her fears of regret and unlived potential are now in the past and Escudè learned to express the emotions she had long repressed while trying to fit into the hyper-masculine music industry. She has found a balance between the masculine dedication to duty and the feminine ability to simply be present. Transmute is a declaration of everything previously unexpressed. The screaming thoughts that once tormented her are here finally expressed with courage and grace.

Throughout her entire career Escudé has been deeply dedicated to education and to teaching her craft to up and coming artists and producers, especially to women who are very underrepresented in the production space. She is a frequent guest lecturer at conferences and major universities all over the world. This fall alone she was a featured speaker at the Ableton Loop conference (see her Ableton ONE Series HERE), was 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 also announce early enrollment for the “TRANSMUTE” online course, which is made up of curriculum she has been for over a year.  TRANSMUTE is the 8 week online accelerator for artists experienced in Ableton Live who are ready to transform their live performance. It was designed to empower artists to be in total control of their live show. The course not only leads artists through interactive modules on how to become self-reliant, but teaches them how to leverage a niche community for continuous growth and how to embrace a new-found creative process led by Ableton's first Certified Trainer Laura Escudé.

“Part of Escudé’s goal with Transmute is to make the art of live programming more accessible for musicians from all walks of life -- especially women, who remain underrepresented in the industry.” - Billboard

“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.

LAURA ESCUDE RELEASES “CONTROL”

ANNOUNCES NEW EP TRANSMUTE COMING 11/16

laura-escude-control.jpg

“In order to really understand the complexities and genuine music crafting that she is doing, you’ll have to immerse yourself into her work.” - Noisey

Laura Escudé’s “Control” is out today worldwide on all major digital retailers and streaming services. This is the first single off the forthcoming EP Transmute due out on November 16th.

Laura Escudé is an artist, innovator, CEO and the world’s most in demand controllerist 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.  She is 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, Bon Iver and Miguel, with whom she did double duty for on his Wildheart tour as his opening act and was in his band.

..... you are a badass, and you certainly have our attention.” - Hypebae

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, Drake, Logic, Selena Gomez and more. Her immense success has inspired her to give back and help pave the way for other women in the technology and electronic music space.  Escudé teaches masterclasses and is a frequent guest lecturer at events and major universities all over the world. This fall she will be a featured speaker at the Ableton Loop conference, and is lending her talents as a mentor to programs with Red Bull (Hack the Hits), Spotify (the CO.LAB Series) and Berklee School of Music (Signature Series). Last year she launched the first ever Transmute retreat, an immersive experience where attendees were able to dig deep with Escudé on live show design. The focus of the retreat was wellness, and the importance of a wellness practice in the life of a creative, a topic that Escudé is extremely passionate about. The retreat was so successful that Escudé is developing an online version of the course to be launched early next year to satiate the demand.  

“We’re hearing, immersing and haven fallen prey to the siren sound of this producer who already lends her programming chops for Kanye West, Jay-Z and many other top dogs.”  - VIBE

Escudé has previously recorded and released music under the Alluxe moniker, and “Control” is the very first release since going back to using her own name. This new music retains her signature sound, a unique and intricate blend of classical and electronic music, and showcases her mastery in both worlds, as classically trained violinist and master technologist. “Control” is the sound of Escudé letting go. It was inspired by a wake up call, after a stint in the hospital due to exhaustion, that she needed to change her life.  Laura has spent the past year pulling back the layers of her psyche, tearing down the walls she built up around herself. The Transmute EP is the sound and feel of a woman who’s examined the darkest parts of herself and come out the other end transformed. It is an intimate look into her journey of finding her voice and being comfortable in her own skin, as an artist and a woman.
