Jacques LavoisierRequest Talent
Jacques Lavoisier is a DJ with a twist … and a PhD; he is a neuroscientist. His knowledge of how the brain functions, together with his musical training, makes him a distinctive performer as he understands intuitively and scientifically what people need to dance and have a great time. He tailors his performances to the people and the venue, ranging from intimate sets for cocktails to more expansive sounds for hundreds of people at corporate events. A true music lover, he takes his audiences through a unique rhythmic and emotional journey.
After keeping his scientific and musical lives separated for more than a decade, Jacques decided to combine his expertise in the brain sciences of vision, sound, rhythm and touch with his passion for electronic music to create the ultimate musical and multi-sensory experience.
Years of research, development, and collaboration with Emotiv – the technology company behind the leading portable brain headsets – allowed him to create The Neuromix™, which he has performed with across the world to the delight of thousands of people. When DJing with The Neuromix™, Jacques gives the audience headgear which allows them to influence the music and light show with their actual brain waves.
His specialty is his Neuromix™ performance which is a combination of electronic music together with VJing controlled by people’s brain activity thanks to portable brain scans.
Style: Jacques is a trained musician, and above all, a music lover. He has DJ’d in more than 25 countries in spaces ranging from the top clubs to corporation headquarters, from opera houses to big festivals. Known for his versatility, he can take the audience on a musical journey from down tempo lounge music to old standards from the 1960s and the 1970s, from rock to the finest commercial electro to pop songs tailored to the atmosphere of a corporate party. He can also deliver cutting-edge electronic music sets (Lounge, Down Tempo, Deep House, House). The DJ set can stand alone or be enhanced with The Neuromix™.
