LUCRECIA DALT / WHITECHAPEL GALLERY PRESENTS WGP05
The latest in a series of sound and performance nights sponsored and co-curated by SPLIT MUSIC features a live show by Berlin-based experimental Colombian producer Lucrecia Dalt, David Blamey’s film Rice (2017) documenting the choreography of rice production in India alongside work by interdisciplinary artist Lotte Andersen & Alonso Leon-Velarde.
Lucrecia Dalt dove into music full–time after working as a civil engineer in Colombia. Her pursuit of avant–garde sound brought her to Spain and then to Germany, where she currently resides. While highly technical, Dalt has always balanced the sharp mind of a methodical thinker with the restless heart of a passionate artist, gradually seeking a way to create hand–crafted mental states through sound, maintaining a quantity of emotionality, merging accessible, melody with abstract structures, handcrafted effects and sampling. Her recent work develops around the ideas of repositioning fiction, time perception, scale, telluric affect, repetition, vocoding and sound dynamics.
With her surrealist experimentations, Colombian musician Lucrecia Dalt draws from a vast wealth of artistic and philosophical influences: From New German Cinema and artificial intelligence to the politics of listening and technological ideas of the future.
