When I hear that a soundtrack to a comic horror show features bodily sounds as one of the main instruments, you have my attention. Lucrecia Dalt has been exploring abstract sound for years and has a deft hand in crafting melodic, uneasy, and malevolent music. For Dalt’s new project, she has scored a 28 track soundtrack for “The Baby”, a series available to stream on Sky and HBO.
The score is composed of weird voices, bodily sounds and throat singing. Add in some warped electronics and a rhythmic seance and you have the lead track “Mareterna”. Lucrecia describes the rhythm as “merengue-like”. Enjoy the track below. “The Baby” soundtrack is due for release on the 27th of May digitally. A vinyl release will follow.
For more information on Lucrecia Dalt’s work (I highly recommend her 2020 album “No era sólida”) follow her on Bandcamp.
