Silence #37: Lucrecia Dalt

3 June - Oude Kerk, Amsterdam
08.00 - €12 - Free for members

Oude Kerk and Subbacultcha will collaborate on a series of Silence concerts in the monumental church. The concerts will be hosted on early Friday mornings where you’ll be invited to wander or take a seat under the wooden barrel vaults and steep archs, while sun rises and dawn breaks. On the morning of the 3rd of June, we welcome musician and sound artist Lucrecia Dalt.

Lucrecia Dalt’s sonics thickens the air with sounds that swing and dangle, illuminated by the radiance of her voice and ripples of percussion. Dalt, who is schooled as a geotechnical engineer, can make you feel like reaching in the dark – grabbing damps and auras, but no solid forms. On her latest record, No era sólida, Lucrecia Dalt channels a second-self, named Lia, who lost the ability of language. Lia asks: “Can paralysis transform a person into a thing?”

Tickets are free for Subbacultcha members and €12,- for non-members. But, unfortunately all Subbacultcha spots are full. You can be added to the waitinglist by sending an email to with ‘Lucrecia Dalt’ in the subject line + your name in the email. We’ll update you as soon as a spot opens up. Tickets can be purchased here. We update the RSVP list very Wednesday.

Oude Kerk & Silence

Oude Kerk is a monument, museum, church and art institution. “Oude Kerk commissions artists to make new, often large scaled context specific work connected to the people, architecture and world around us. Oude Kerk aims to inspire to mentally reframe the commonplace in order to create new perspectives on our times. From its inception, Oude Kerk takes art outside the white cube making the dynamic realm of the everyday life part of the exhibitions. Through opening up new perspectives on heritage and history, oude kerk adds new and missing pages to our (art)history books and offers alternative ways to observe the world around us.”

Silence explores music, textural interplay, and spatial experience. For the series, Oude Kerk invites artists to create site-specific works, often experimenting with sound sources and audience positioning.
