Avec Sans partner with Novation and aim to break down the walls of live electronic performance. With their hacked and tilted launchpads, they bring the audience into the mechanisms of their live electronic set. Avec Sans have released three official singles, achieving national radio play and media acclaim. They have remixed major label artists, receiving praise from the likes of DJ Sasha and they have toured internationally.
Avec Sans have been embraced by the fashion industry and have been played on the catwalks of New York Fashion week. Before they’d performed in public they were asked to design a shoe for luxury brand Swear. Amongst extensive fashion press they were named band of the year by Dolce and Gabbana, Track of the Day on Vogue.com and have performed at Milan fashion launches.
