Inspired by the chopped-up, processed sounds of the ‘90s, Lakker’s humanist slant on techno has received play-outs by the likes of Aphex Twin and Laurent Garnier. The brainchild of Irish duo Dara Smith and Ian McDonnell, Lakker’s live AV show mixes eerily beautiful vocals, propulsive dance music and pulsating visuals to conjure up visions of glaciers, tectonic shifts and vast open spaces.
Sonica is a year-round touring programme dedicated to world-class visual sonic arts, punctuated by an 11-day biennial festival in Glasgow and a biennial long weekend at Kings Place, London. Cryptic presents today’s most imaginative, innovative artists whilst also nurturing the creative talent of tomorrow.
