A Double Bill Sound Experience Featuring Laura Escudé and Lenka Morávková

There is a rare space where music, innovation and deeply feminine artistry converge. This space has long been the domain of both Laura Escudé and Leenka Morávková. Both highly established artists and educators, these sonic vanguards incorporate cutting-edge tech, singular analog and and raw emotional depth into their recorded music and live performances.

Now, for the first time, the Los Angeles-based Escudé and Czech Republic-born Morávková are on tour together, dazzling audience with the two live shows that are bold, innovative and indelible. For this limited engagement run, Escudé and Morávková will first lead performative presentations discussing their art and approach then demonstrate these skills with a pair of mesmerizing live performances.

For this tour, Morávková - known around the world for her Bohemian Cristal Instrument (BCI), a one of a kind accoustic glass instrument from which Morávková elicits a fascinating ambient sound - performs solo or with a full band, combining the hypnotizing sonic mood of ther Cristal with her ethereal vocals, analogue synthesizers and digital drums. Morávková's self-designed instrument is a uniwue version of the Cristal Baschet, an instrument originally created in 1950's by the French Baschet brother. For Morávková, this instrument is less an object but a living creature a liminal entity guiding the sound and mood of each performance. In support of her debit 2018 UNICODE EP, performances with BCI are accompanied by an interactive light show and lasers reaction to the sound of the instrument in real time, pulling audiences into a ritual of a pulsing, electro-acoustic music. The experience is unforgettable.
