Laurel Halo

EMPAC — Troy, NY USA

Laurel Halo was in residence to record material for her album, Dust, released in 2017 on Hyperdub Records. Laurel Halo is a producer and live electronic musician from Ann Arbor, Michigan. Influenced by her Midwestern roots, Halo’s music speaks to new club ecologies explored through abstract rhythms, chaotic ambience, and moody jazz elements. “Techno is a meditative force that can process darkness and remove problems… in their place, the ideal of a non-threatening, transcended, sexually charged headspace emerges,” she told The Wire. Physical process and temporal drift are recurring motifs in Halo’s discography.

Dust was released by Hyperdub Records in 2017
