Columbian musician living in Berlin Lucrecia Dalt returns to the Volksbühne’s Roter Salon this April for another very special concert where she will be accompanied by a live band.
Along the arc of Dalt’s music, beyond what steers her so allusively away from self-repetition, there is an undefinable forward inertia. What can explain, for instance, the near absence of her voice? Is it personal interest, renunciation, an embrace? Is she driven by a backdrop of conceptualism, or is this a lyrical wandering?
What we know, for starters, is that she made this album immersed in a cinema of her own, curatorial creation. Its filmic quality is a direct consequence of her turning her studio into a screening room for classic works of New German Cinema, pulling influence from directors such as Helke Sander and Werner Schroeter. As she works, she absorbs, and Ou results from a conscious staging of this process. The impact can be felt both at the levels of surface and structure. While the sound quality reflects these evocative, multi-layered scenarios, the larger departure from any of her previous works is the album’s spatial, mix-like composition, with each track being made up of several companion titles.
JD Zazie is a DJ, turntablist and sound artist based in Berlin. As a solo performer and in her many collaborations she explores different approaches to real-time manipulation of recorded sounds. Intended as music instruments, CDjs, turntables and mixer are her tools to mix the chosen sound-sources – mostly electronic and electroacoustic music, musique concrète, field recordings and impros. Juxtaposition, decontextualization, fragmentation, repetition, sonic texture, scratch and errors are elements of the grammar adopted to relate, organize and rearrange the sound material. She is co-founder of Studio Urban Resonance (w/Olaf Schäfer), a member of the Italian label Burp Enterprise and director of MuseRuole Festival. She also co-runs Staalplaat Radio.
