Electro-acoustic strategies fuse with abstract melodies into a playfully mystical sonic universe.

Hailing from Oaxaca, Mexico and currently based in Brussels, Vica Pacheco crafts a rich sound world that comes alive in surprising manifold turns. On the heels of Vocamorphosis, her stunning electroacoustic piece commissioned by France Culture where Ferrari-esque divagations venture into the untamed fancies of an imaginary wilderness, her debut record Symplegmata transposes a continuous exploration of unearthed sound narratives into briefer vignettes that, together, allow for a fully-fleshed mythology to unfurl. Departing from the idea of the symplegma - biological fusions, hermaphrodite sexuality, the amalgamation of distinct beings into fully-realized entities - Pacheco synthesizes field recordings and manipulated vocals in order to weld unique micro-sculptures that convey environments as contrasting as they are complementary.

The 12 tracks that compose Symplegmata can be interpreted as elements for an alternative science fiction soundtrack or as the leisurely tunes of a parallel civilization from future pasts; either way, the physicality of Pacheco’s sound crafting beckons the kind of immersive melding that, much like the underwater symplegmatic beings of her lore, generate new fusional experiences with each listen.
