Bio

DeLaurentis est l’une des rares productrices et créatrice de musique électronique qui parvient à transmettre de réelles émotions en jouant de la voix sur des machines. Sa musique électro-cinématique est à la fois douce et puissante, claire et obscure : implacablement efficace et envoûtante.

Sa voix occupe le rôle de personnage principal de ces films sonores. Rythmique ou mélodique, harmonique ou vaporeuse, elle est le fil conducteur et la sève qui donne humanité à ses addictifs voyages synthétiques.
Delaurentis a appris la musique au Conservatoire et a découvert la production et le mixage en autodidacte. Elle exprime son art, sa musique à travers les nouvelles technologies et son instrument favori est le Push d’Ableton.

D’ailleurs Issey Miyake ne s’y trompe pas lorsqu’il demande à son équipe de débusquer une artiste qui serait la digne héritière de Laurie Anderson : c’est DeLaurentis qui est alors désignée comme tel pour composer et jouer live la musique du défilé Spring/Summer 2020.

Après 3 EP bien accueillis :

“DeLaurentis joue dans la cours des grandes ” Les Inrocks

“Une voie ouatée qui souligne l’aspect atmosphérique de ses délicates pop songs anglophones” Rock&Folk

“DeLaurentis princesse electro!” Oh My Mag

“DeLaurentis the gap between Maurice Ravel and Daft Punk” Ableton

Elle prépare la sortie de son 1er album pour début 2021.

Behind the name evoking cinematic thoughts, is a female singer, songwriter and producer who delivers electronic lunar and ethereal pop music. A laboratory of sound wherein synthesizer, piano, megaphone, looper and controller coexist.
From Toulouse where her jazz musician father was pianist-arranger for Claude Nougaro, she learned music at the Conservatory of Perpignan and in Toulouse in Musicology Jazz at the University of Mirail as well as a music school for film scoring.
DeLaurentis’ influences are nurtured by Ryuichi Sakamoto’s and Jóhann Jóhannsson’s film scores, Brian Eno’s synths, as well as Max Richter’s work.

A self-taught producer, she discovered the world of computer music at the age of 24, starting with the softwares Cubase and Logic. Influenced by Laurie Anderson, one of the first woman who pioneered electronic music and of her main reference, she started producing and mixing music on her own.

In 2015, with her first EP, she swapped the piano for Ableton Live and the controller Push, which she uses as her main instrument. With this specific controller, she can all by herself loop her voice, assign effects (vocoders, delays, reverb, filters…) and play different synthesizers at the same time: a great tool both for creating and producing in her home studio and for performing live shows.

Resulting in an electronica pop cinematic style, DeLaurentis’ music is a mixture of organic sounds, sound design and electronic textures, informed by her more traditional musical background. Most of the time, her songs start out as piano and vocal based compositions, which are then built up like a screenplay, with introduction, exposition, developments, climax, and ending.

For each song, her goal is to convey the voice as the main character through the use of voice as the core sound. At times rhythmic or melodic, harmonious or evasive, the voice is the leading sound that brings a warmth to the electronic tones of the music.
