Minuit De Lacroix
Musician and Actor in Tijuana, Mexico
Mexican Madrilenian, citizen of the world. Nomad heart.
Since 1997, a principal focus of my studies and research as a singer-songwriter has been the application of electronic instruments in pop music composition.
During the past twelve years I've designed sound for numerous video art pieces, contemporary dance / theatre performances, light art installations and composed soundtracks for various independent features and short films.
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.
Digital Audio Editing 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, and other commercial clients and private institutions.
Since 2010, I've been traveling to cities in Central Europe, Mexico and USA to present my live minimal techno act: MDL.
Most recently, also to Tbilisi, Georgia, at the crossroads of Western Asia and Eastern Europe.
As an endorser for Korg Spain, I have done a series of mentorship discussions and product analysis activities in Barcelona / Madrid.
Other conversations about music where I have 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.
During this time, I've developed and imparted a basic tutorial in Belgium, France, Germany and Hungary, for young and young at heart music enthusiasts, entitled: "Analogue synthesizers and music sequencers 101".
For Mexico and Spain I called it: "Las ondas sonoras".
This masterclass covers the fundamentals of sound theory and 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. It also provides the basic information for operating any electronic music sequencer and offers one-on-one supervision.
As an actor, I’ve recorded my voice for multiple projects and have participated as a supporting actor in various films including a significant role as the mysterious French Lieutenant in Peter Weir's "Master and Commander: The Far Side Of The World".
