Laura Agnusdei

Laura Agnusdei is an electroacoustic composer and saxophone player from Bologna. Classically trained, she also holds a Master in electronic music composition by The Institute of Sonology of The Hague. She is also the saxophonist of Italian cult psych-rock band Julie's Haircut. Since 2016 she has been performed in many venues and festivals such as Rewire, EYE Filmmuseum, Reform Act, Macao and Ipercorpo and played as opening act for artists such Colin Stetson and Jenny Hval. Her compositions feature the saxophone as the main voice within sonic landscapes that shift between melodies and textures, song form and improvisation, fusing acoustic, digital and analogue sound sources to create emotional states that change from track to track. ‘Night/Lights’, an EP composed of four pieces of soulful electroacoustic music, was her solo debut cassette released in September 2017 on The Tapeworm. Tonight at Cafe OTO she will be premiering her debut album ‘Laurisilva’, to be released by The Wormhole later this year and first available on sale at the show. lauragnusdei.com
