Lucina Lou & Philippe Petit met in Santiago in April 2017, a connection instantly took place and both felt an urge to unite forces. Playing together was like meeting a musical twin, unleashing unpredicted sounds and musical spices stirred up spasmodically, dancing and creating a visual performance, adding charisma/presence onstage... Lucina was using her body, from head to foot, her voice and various instruments (mainly theremin) to generate "stochastic vibrations". On stage, one could see her playing, laughing, crying, dancing. Experimenting with synthesizers, sound effects, mobile phones, environmental recordings, electric guitar and the mono-theremin she created and built. On her side Philippe was assaulting turntables to take advantage of the vinyl material to fondle released sounds, raking the needle across the record's grooves, rubbing their stylus on paper, cardboard, metal to process unusual noises and textures… Both totally connected, listening/reacting to each other, empathic and, and at the same time releasing controversial music.
-- Lucina Lou (1982, Santiago, Chile)
Passionate by the sound of the sea and imagining the sound of the sky, inspired by the metropolis and living a constant journey, Lucina Lou has generated her own sound: a mixture of musique concrète, noise, ambient electronics and industrial music. Since the age of 16 he has performed all over Latin America and Europe.
She currently plays as a multi-instrumentalist and vocalist in the band “Un Festín Sagital” (Beta-Lactam Ring, Black Horizons and Ects.
