This is... earsthetic: Alex Smoke and Florence To
10 Nov 2015
Artist Florence To designs and produces spatial light installations whilst Glaswegian DJ Alex Menzies — aka Alex Smoke — uses classical composition and form and electronic music's darker recesses to create a unique sound. Together they create a visceral live show of visual rhythms and future sounds.
They say… ‘Every shape I create I think about the rhythm,’ Florence To, Dummy Magazine
Brighton Dome Music Producer and earsthetic curator Laura says… ‘Alex’s sound is really interesting – he’s a techno DJ, but he has a really strong classical influence in his work. When you see the visuals, which are sort of like an animation, the texture is so beautiful it just pulls you in.’
Critics say... 'Alex Smoke makes electronic music that runs counter to virtually every prevailing trend' Pitchfork
