Meaning: Profusion of hedge-blossom in full spring (Gerard Manley Hopkins, poetic)
Dalot is a project by Maria Papadomanolaki originally conceived in 2004 as an informal outlet for experimental composition. Papadomanolaki cites early post-rock, noise rock, abstract quitar-based music, drone, ambient, shoegaze and minimal electronica as equally important influences, however through Dalot she tries to sculpt a new territory where all these merge and form a delicate personal sonic language.
Dalot has collaborated and shared the stage with artists like Absent without leave, Bvdub, port-royal, Robert Henke, worriedaboutsatan, Mike Cadoo (Bitcrush, Gridlock), and Fil Ieropoulos (aka Filtig). She has released her music with labels such as n5MD, Sound in Silence, Fluid Audio, A Strangely Isolated Place, Dronarivm, Hibernate, Futuresequence, Sun Sea Sky, Hands, Fytini, Panospria, This Is It Forever, Radical Matters. Papadomanolaki has also composed music and sound design for films, dance performances and exhibitions and has performed across Europe and the US.
