What's Included


Laura Escudé

Laura Escudé is a producer and sound artist creating magic through music, tech, and consciousness. She is an innovator, entrepreneur, and live show designer with a deep understanding of complex technology and a profound passion for music and art. Fusing tech with art is her superpower.

Synthesizing her skills as a classically trained violinist and technical prowess as an avant-garde electronic producer, Escudé infuses Neo-classical and sleek futuristic style with raw emotion elicited with her musical machines. She has performed her live electronic show at numerous festivals and events, including Osheaga, Ondalinda, and NAMM. Using technology to advance their fields, Escudé and two other female pioneers are key artists featured on Hello Sunshine + HPE’s documentary “In Her Element”.

Since becoming the first Ableton Certified Trainer back in 2008, Laura’s career highlights include designing shows for Kanye West and Jay Z, opening for Miguel on his 2015 Wildheart tour, building a thriving international business populated by top-tier professionals, and developing premier educational programs accessed around the globe.

After a tour burnout landed Laura in the hospital back in 2016, she was forced to take a break from work and focus on her health. This physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual process involved letting go of unproductive habits and thought patterns, facing her fears, and giving up aspects of her life that no longer served her. The experience inspired Laura to help artists accelerate their live performances using technology, while securing a safe place that encourages their own health and well-being.
