JPR Live Session: Estère
Estère (aka Estère Dalton) creates a blend of music she refers to as "electric blue witch hop."
The singer and songwriter started out in her bedroom, making beats in her pajamas instead of studying for University. Her tool of choice was Lola, an MPC (music production center). It's a controller device with touch pads that can trigger various sampled sounds. For those, Estère scoured the web and record various sounds from her own local environment.
In an effort to describe all of the various elements that flavor her music, Estère chose "Electric Blue Witch Hop." It covers electronica, the synesthesia of the color blue, the magical, ethereal components, and her love of hip-hop and heavy bass.
She played us a few tunes from her latest album called Archetypes from her home studio.
