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 lives. While highly technical, Dalt’s music still maintains a quantity of emotionality, merging accessible, melody with abstract structures, handcrafted effects and sampling.
After several underground releases, in 2012 she debuted, on Berlin-based Human Ear Music, her first LP, “Commotus”, a work reflecting the music’s ability to seamlessly, almost-cinematically shift in mood, from minimal and ethereal to multi-layered and wild.
Dalt stuck with the label for 2013’s “Syzygy”, a record that dwells in melancholy, assaulting listeners with unfamiliar electronics.
In December 2015 she released her new LP, “Ou”, on the Berlin-based label Care of Editions as part of a scholarship granted by Music Board Berlin. This LP is the result of a research which engages the history of modern filmmaking in Germany and build upon an ongoing technique used in her work, which is to provoke some entanglement between the emotional dynamic experienced during the viewing of a film, and what is experienced during the music production process.
