Lucrecia Dalt – Anticlines – May 4, 2018

Lucrecia Dalt’s Anticlines, her sixth album and first on RVNG Intl., is a volume of bodily and geological substrates within poetic theory and sound. It is a place where skins and minerals dissolve and commingle, where gaseous subterranean leaks inflate lungs, where brain cavities echo interplanetary waves bent from passing through atmospheres.

A former geotechnical engineer from Colombia currently residing in Berlin, Dalt’s concern with boundaries and edges shape the lyrics and music of Anticlines. Paying careful attention to pace, breath, and texture, Dalt microtonally shifts the distance between speech and song while using traditional South American rhythms to support her contemporary electronic composition.

Berlin-based director Charlotte Collin visualizes the first offering from Anticlines, “Tar,” with the morphing and ghostly image of Dalt melting in and out of a limitless space. Drip into “Tar” via the video below:

Lucrecia will join Tune-Yards on select European dates next month before select solo shows in Berlin throughout April and May.

On behalf of Lucretia Dalt, a portion of the proceeds from Anticlines sales will be donated to Tierra Digna, an organization dedicated to the defense of Colombian communities affected by economic policies that violate human rights and devastate the environment, under Come! Mend!, an initiative bridging RVNG’s work and interest supporting non-profit organizations and charities.

Sugai Ken – “Douijiri” – by Kiyotaka Sumiyoshi

“My conversation with Sugai Ken about his experience creating ‘Doujiri’ links back to his travels to Kyoto. First-person shots allow us to relive Ken’s journey through Kyoto’s mystical bamboo forest. Ken wanted to visualize specific Japanese folk arts with this video, all of which have been used for centuries. Each object presented in the video has a special meaning as a ceremonial object or ritual offering.” – Kiyotaka Sumiyoshi

Pauline Anna Strom – Trans-Millenia Music – “Energies”

Pauline Anna Strom’s initial outpouring of music came in 1982 under the name Trans-Millenial Consort. Blind by birth, Paula dabbled with music growing up in the south, but didn’t find her true voice until moving to San Francisco in her early twenties and eventually discovering synthesizers.

That first self-titled album, Trans-Millenial Consort, recorded at home by Paula and then brought further life and color by Peter Buffet and Lemon DeGeorge, exhibited a true — and truly free — form of Paula’s creative capability.

RVNG is now working with Paula to bring a collection of her early recorded works to the world this November. We’ve been working toward the best representation of Paula for just about six years. Paula is excited to have her music revisited, but she is even more excited to play music again. If you’ve followed our archival series, we’re all about that agency and figuring out how to bring Paula’s music to life / live settings all over again.

Awaken your third eye with the new Trans-Millenia Tee featuring the visionary art of Karma Moffett, originally used on the cover of Pauline Anna Strom’s 1982 album. Gradient red / blue printed on white tees made responsibly in the USA with recycled, 100% cotton by Everybody. Grab the tee alone, or as a bundle with the new compilation. Check the shop.
