Lapalux

MUSIC/SOUND

Considered “one of the finest producers of the moment,” London-based artist Lapalux (AKA Stuart Howard) is a rising star of electronic music. Mixing R&B, IDM, and a penchant for sci-fi with woozy, glitched-out beats, his early work caught the ear of LA mastermind Flying Lotus, whose forward-listening hip-hop label, Brainfeeder, has subsequently released Lapalux’s first two records. Last year’s Lustmore was inspired by the experience of hypnagogia, the transitional state of consciousness between wakefulness and sleep, with each track aspiring to create a liminal world populated by enigmatic characters and cinematic plotlines.

Taking movie soundtracks and visual ideas as inspiration, Lapalux creates dance music for both the body and the imagination. For this performance, he will explore a new audio-visual experience.
