For the past 15 years, American musician Liz Harris, also known of her solo-project Grouper, has composed an exceptional body of work. Harris has created an intimate, meditative musical signature, delicately exploring spaces between ambient, field recordings, and more song-structured music. During Rewire x Korzo, she will be joined by New Zealand-born guitarist and experimentalist composer Roy Montgomery. Just like Harris, Montgomery has a minimalist approach to music, with more power and noise. Liz Harris and Roy Montgomery already joined forces in the past, as Harris was featured on Montgomery's latest solo album 'Suffuse', collaborating on its ethereal noise track 'Landfall'. The two also teamed up before, releasing a split EP in 2010. This night will be a rare opportunity to hear both grandmasters live together, presenting their only performance in The Netherlands.
Mary Lattimore is a Los Angeles-based musician who uses her concert grand harp to conjure up beautifully abstracted forms that evoke a host of memories, landscapes and allusions. Across a breadth of recordings, collaborations and art commissions her music explores a realm of wordless narratives and indefinite travelogues, where – with the help of effects and occasional vocals - extended harp improvisations morph into spectral songforms. In live performance she reveals the impressionist magic of her chosen instrument, blurring classical technique and ambient electronics to beguiling effect.
