LUSIO strives to create accessible experiences utilizing the art of light to create immersive journeys through the time space continuum we call life. Whether it's the annual Lusio festival that gathers thousands of light lovers, or a brilliantly explosive underground techno event, thoughtfully curating video art or (light art) and progressive electronically created sounds has been proven to provide a template for a psycho somatic experience that builds, fulfills, inspires, and bends the mind into unknown territories. One light wave at a time.

Techno Logic Synth Culture
We are a community program, promoting a simple concept: self expression through
sound. Our ethos is driven by cultivating inclusive synth culture in the Pacific Northwest.
We host communal learning events where all are welcome. There's an opportunity to jam, teach, observe, and learn in a safe space. This environment encourages collaboration, empowers people to push themselves creatively, and provides an entry point into performing electronic music.
Through our partnership with Innovation High School, we also provide support and
resources for high school students to broaden their understanding of music production, and create meaningful digital media. In this program, students get hands-on access to a wide variety of electronic instruments and audio production equipment 5 days a week.
Empowering the next generation of synthesists and electronic music artists.
Honor and embrace creative diversity.
Synthesis For All.
