With her sophomore album, Commotus, colombian pop luminary Lucrecia Dalt crafts a surrealist landscape borne by the inexorable scope and sand-swept surfaces of geologic time. She leaps into a surrealist landscape with stunning abandon, eschewing the comparatively safe tropes and song structures of her previous work. And she charts a surprisingly inventive and rewarding territory in the process. Much as it is with her newfound contemporaries at HEM Berlin, for Dalt, solitude and assemblage (of sound, genre, musicology, technique) is an exploratory zone steered toward the inner universe. To follow the music, one must be prepared to make this trip as real as sound itself. Themes of agitation and disturbance, cumulative, impending and scalable, propel Commotus, and create a framework for understanding its emotional spectra. The music lives in the contradiction between having time to reflect on the inevitable, and the irrevocability of its outcome. Dalt, who is a civil engineer with a specialty in geotechnics, knows that motion on a geologic time scale can be the most poignant analogy to the interminable struggle between self-awareness and sea change.

2. - The Sound of Lucrecia, (previously known as Lucrecia) is the musical project of Lucrecia Pérez. A girl who was born in Pereira, Colombia in 1980.
With a guitar, electronic loops and her voice she weaves straightforward, emotional and catchy songs. She writes her songs, plays the guitar, produces her music and while doing it she fills her project with her enveloping and sweet voice, covering all her music with quiet and pleasant emotions.
Her project began in 2003. In 2005 she released her first album Acerca under the label Series of Medellín, this album falls into diverse electronic music genres and is created mainly with sinthetizers, drum machines and her voice. Later on 2007, the mexican label Mil Records where she had previously collaborated, re-edited this album.
During 2007 the sound of Lucrecia started to change slightly into more pop-structured productions, where the guitar and the vocal research became essential. This exercise drove her to her second production, an EP called Like Being Home, released under the net-label section of Series in May 2007.
The subtle presence of Lucrecia on stage is filled with femininity and versatility. She appears alone with her guitar, electronic devices, her computer and some other instruments. Her songs are progressively constructed on the set, recording live samples and structuring the melodies and rhythms. In a way a live performance by Lucrecia is like to watch a music lab where her strength, her voice, and her guitar make the audience feel as if the music came from some place in their memories.
She currently lives and works in Barcelona, Spain.
