Camila Fuchs (meaning fox in German) are the London based experimental electronic duo of Camila de Laborde and Daniel Hermann-Collini (from Mexico and Munich respectively). After pursuing solo endeavours in various projects both Camila and Daniel left their native countries and gravitated towards London due to its vibrant and eclectic attitudes to different cultures and the arts. Meeting whilst studying at Goldsmiths University through a shared belief in the combined importance of aesthetics and music to bridge borders, they began working on music together. Starting as a predominantly laptop based project, the duo soon discovered a love for analogue and modular equipment that saw them deviate from their known track, it would prove to be a decision that founded the notion of 'Singing From Fixed Rung'. Focusing on pooling their collective thoughts and influences they placed equal onus on both the sonics and aesthetics. Taking inspiration from Oskar Schlemmer's Bauhaus style, they utilise it's rejection of gender stereotypes to subvert the roles of traditional electronic duos and androgynise the production and performance process, to place focus back on to the emotional enjoyment of music. Choosing to wear translucent morph suits and bald caps makes them appear almost naked in front of the audience and allows them to take advantage of the power inherent in fashion to adopt characters inside the music and use it to convey an emotional message in response to their surroundings.
