About the Line-Up

A former geotechnical engineer from Colombia currently residing in Berlin, Lucrecia Dalt’s concern with boundaries and edges shape the lyrics and music of Anticlines, her sixth album. Paying careful attention to pace, breath, and texture, Dalt microtonally shifts the distance between speech and song. Lucrecia arrived at the atmosphere of Anticlines after several months of studying and creating new patches for the Clavia Nord Modular, forming a rhythmic feedback flow with it, a Moogerfooger MuRF, and her voice. The overall effect of cavernous space backdroping Dalt’s intimate vocal phrasing rewards contemplation, supported in the physical formats of Anticlines by a lyric booklet documenting Lucrecia’s collaboration with Australian artist Henry Andersen. Mystic of matter, Lucrecia Dalt has previously performed and worked with Julia Holter and Gudrun Gut, her slippery spoken word and performative nature recalling the work of Laurie Anderson, Robert Ashley, Asmus Tietchens, or Lena Platonos. While touching stones, The Thing by Dylan Trigg, Cascade Experiment by Alice Fulton, and Wretched of the Screen by Hito Steyerl are but a few formative scripts that support Dalt’s exploration of the betwixt and between. In preparing a live set for Anticlines, Dalt plans to stage an uninterrupted configuration, like a kind of alienated lecture, aiming for “gestures that create tensions with non-existent objects.” Dalt intends “to provide meaning and a place for the listener to meditate or relate to the concerns and ideas” she presents.

Metasplice formed in the summer of 2010 following an impromptu jam session. This later inspired the future duo to release a split record of solo material on _bruxist in early 2011. After touring for the record, the group began collaborating and recording full time. In spring of 2012, the duo released a cassette, ‘MS I/II’ (Injections Limited) that caught the ears of Morphine Records. After releasing a couple of EPs on Morphine, the group released their critically acclaimed debut album, Infratracts (Morphine, 2013), earning them tours throughout Europe and a mind-bending stint in Japan. In the years that followed, they shifted their focus to recording their 2nd full length, metasplice (_bruxist, 2015): a studio representation of their live performance material up to that point (also demonstrated on several self–released live show cassettes). Summer 2018 has become a proper re-entry point for Metasplice. Their 3rd album, Mirvariates, has attracted attention throughout the electronic music world.

About Mutual Irradiation

Mutual Irradiation is an interdisciplinary performance and lecture series initiated by Jim Strong. Referencing a Quaker devotional text, Mutual Irradiation refers to as an inner radiance which can be mutually drawn between the listener and the one being listened to, in the pull of deep conversation and sharing. A category of listening which in a social and reciprocal context behaves like the connecting of a circuit, beginning a transmission of radiance, intimacy, ideas, blueprints….
