When Issey Miyake asked his team to find an artist worthy of inheriting Laurie Anderson’s legacy, it was DeLaurentis who was naturally designated to compose and perform the music live for his Spring / Summer 2020 fashion show.
The production of her debut album began in the summer of 2018 in Paris.
After bonding with her machines for two years, developing an almost mystical connection between the human and digital worlds. DeLaurentis brought to life her digital sister: Unica.
The result is a concept album, a duet with her machine: natural voices contrasted with synthetic voices.
Unica is as much alive as the humans collaborating on the album: Dan Black, Yaron Herman, Daymark and Fabien Waltmann.
The song "Somewhere in Between" was even recorded using artificial intelligence, a stimulating adventure supervised by pioneer Benoît Carré aka Skygge.
DeLaurentis, by sliding her crystalline voice on pads evoking Brian Eno, over Moroder-like arpeggiators, accomplishes the fantasy of Spike Jonze in Her : Unica is alive!
Delaurentis has created an ideal connection between woman and machine, the missing link between pop and artificial intelligence.
