Etienne de Crecy [Audio]: Welcome to The Cube

Image for Etienne de Crecy [Audio]: Welcome to The Cube

If you thought Daft Punk’s pyramid was the coolest stage set-up in dance music, Etienne de Crécy would like you to reconsider. The French star has been wowing the festival circuit for two years now with ‘The Cube’: a mind-boggling tower of light-boxes that pulse and shift in time with the beats. Developed in conjunction with ‘visual architects’ the EXYZT collective, the concept is a continual work in progress. De Crécy presides over the action from the centre cube, juggling his live set and the corresponding visuals.

The man last visited Australia as part of house dream-team Super Discount back in 2005. While the stage show was more modest (three heads bobbing around behind a bank of equipment), what came out the speakers was something special. De Crécy has applied his Super Discount work ethic to The Cube: using vintage synthesisers and samplers to create each set on the fly. And if there’s anyone with the musical history to back up such a spectacle, it’s Etienne de Crécy.

This month, he’ll debut his new toy on our shores with the Future Music Festival. Here ITM’s Jack Tregoning speaks to de Crécy about giving Daft Punk a run for their money ,as well as those dastardly copycat Killers...
