Lapalux is coming to EMPAC on December 16 (postponed from the date in the image above), and is exploring “a new audio-visual experience” for the performance. EMPAC was kind enough to give me a pair of tickets to give away to one lucky reader. If you’re not the contest type, tickets are currently available from EMPAC.
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 hypnogogia, 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.
