Join us for a night of electronic synth madness at LA Space Camp!

LEX
The darkness covered the land. Its tar seduced, crawled and suffocated. Dreams were desolate--pleads to the stars. The quest became clear; the empresses combined their powers to overcome the void. As one, their journey began - for the illumination of the Universe. The combination of their powers, artistry, innovation and electronic execution is LEX.

Emily Afton Music
Emily Afton Music
Emily Afton’s voice is transporting. Smokey, powerful, and emotive, Emily delivers her soul to you in the form of nostalgic indie-pop songs - with ribbons of folk and electronica interwoven. Solo or with her band, Afton aims to snatch your heart with her live performance playing haunting vocal-driven narratives in the style of Fiona Apple followed by dark synths, then uptempo dance tracks that turn swaying audiences into dancing crowds. Last fall one of her performances did just this for Third Eye Blind lead singer Stephan Jenkins, who promptly asked her to join their U.S. tour as the opening band. An inspired Afton quickly returned home to finish her debut full-length album.

ARCHETYPE [album], released in September 2016, has been called an indie-pop explosion from "an artist who is clearly on an ascent" (Pure Volume). The episodic debut LP, co-produced by David Earl and Lila Rose reveals a new edge and depth to the once sweet singer-songwriter's music. ARCHETYPE laces together stories of an artist discovering both the sonic and emotional worlds and ghosts that exist within us all.

Emily and her band plan to spend 2017 touring the new album across the U.S. and beyond.

L.A. Girlfriend
Raised on a diet of New Order, Iron Maiden, and everything in between, Sydney Banta takes cues from the movements of the 80s to create the electronic-analog powerhouse that is L.A. Girlfriend. Combining simple bass lines with drum beats as complex as her subject matter, Banta tells emotional stories of heartbreak and redemption through the veil of synth-heavy dance tracks. 

Razor-sharp, yet charmingly sweet, L.A. Girlfriend is proof that beauty can bite in all the best ways possible.

In this incarnation, Computo will fuse physical forms with a modern modular synthesizer to perform generative IDM and experimental electronic textures.
