Ghostly International recording artist and long time Ableton Live veteran Jeff McIlwain, aka Lusine, will be demonstrating his performance configuration with a brief set, followed by an explanation of how he uses triggers, various sound clips, plug-ins and effects in real-time during his performance.
Jeff McIlwain has been producing his visceral, melodic strain of abstract electronic music as Lusine for 10 years now. Originally a Texas native, Jeff attended CalArts in 1998, studying 20th-century electronic music and sound design for music and film. Soon after, he met Shad Scott and put out his self-titled debut as Lusine for Isophlux. Since then, McIlwain relocated to Seattle and began steadily releasing his music on Ghostly International (home to 2004’s landmark Serial Hodgepodge as well as its successful followup remix album Podgelism), Hymen, and U-Cover. McIlwain has also contributed tracks to various compilations and remix releases on Mute, !K7, Kompakt, Asthmatic Kitty, and Shitkatapult. His Language Barrier full-length on Hymen Records. Jeff’s most recent full length release titled “A Certain Distance” went on to become one of the most critically acclaimed electronic music albums of 2009. – Ghostly International
