“Druggy and sexy and arty and pretty, but never pretentious.” —Pitchfork
The one-woman ambient project Grouper (aka Liz Harris) crafts sonic meditations, both secretive and noisy, gently propelled by guitar, lush electronics, and pastoral drones. “The music of Grouper creates a feeling that can only be defined as awe, an uncanny mixture of wonder and dread that nobody does better” (Pitchfork). Her spectral blend of piano, guitar, and synths reverberates with hiss, haze, and notions of distant landscapes.
Exploring the interstitial spaces of live sound and visual art, the in-gallery music series Sound Horizon showcases a number of the most respected US composers and solo sonic adventurers. These free 30-minute performances take place within the Walker galleries. Enjoy free gallery admission on Thursday nights from 5 to 9 pm. Presented in association with the American Composers Forum.
