Minuit De Lacroix
Musician and Artist in Zürich
Mexican Madrilenian, citizen of the world.
A principal focus of my research as a singer-songwriter has been to mix electronic instruments with natural sounds in pop music with meaningful lyrics.
Over 20 years I've designed sound for video art, contemporary dance / theatre performances, light installations and composed soundtracks for various independent features & short films.
In 2020 I produced a field recording / sound design for Audiosfera: a collective exhibition at Reina Sofía Museum in Madrid that facilitates profound & prolonged listening.
Since 2010 I've traveled within Europe, Mexico, USA & to Tbilisi, Georgia, presenting my live minimal techno act: MDL (@mdlbcn) .
As an endorser for Korg & Arturia, I've done many mentorship discussions and product analysis in Barcelona, Madrid, Paris, Berlin, Vienna & Warsaw.
During this time I developed and imparted a basic tutorial for young music students in Belgium, France, Germany, Hungary, Italy, Poland & Serbia called:
"Analogue synthesizers and music sequencers 101".
Then for Mexico and Spain: "Las ondas sonoras".
As co-founder of Resonancia Sound Lab in Tijuana (2016), my masterclass covered the fundamentals of sound theory & electronic music hardware operation with practical terms that can be understood by entry level users through careful and clear presentation of the synthesizer functions that shape sound waves.
Other conversations about music where I participated:
“Cut and Paste Culture”: Sample-based Pop Music and its Analysis Workshop at TU Berlin.
“Borderline art(ists)”: Disrespecting Borders at gold extra Studio, Künstlerhaus Salzburg.
Norient series of debates: Seismographic Sounds - Visions of a New World exhibition at Kunstraum Kreuzberg/Bethanien.
In November 2006, I was part of "SCORE.edu: First European Forum for Music Education in Film, TV & Digital Media", at the International Centre for Culture & Management in Salzburg, Austria.
Past works include: Sound design for various films, documentary audio restoration for the Laboratory of Social Habitat, Gender and Participation department of the University of Barcelona plus commercial music for private clients & institutions such as Mercedes-Benz.
As an actor, I’ve recorded my voice for multiple projects and participated in various films including a significant role as the faceless French Lieutenant in Peter Weir's "Master and Commander: The Far Side Of The World".
