GROUPER(Type、Weird Forest、Root Strata)
女流作家Liz Harrisによるアンビエント~サイケフォークプロジェクト。彼岸と此岸を行き来するかのような幽邃な揺らぎを声とアコースティックギター、極端なまでの空間操作を行い構築している。2008年にType Recordsより発表された通算4枚目となるフルアルバム「Dragging A Dead Deer Up A Hill」により世界的にその名を知らしめた。2009年にはAnimal Collectiveの米国ツアーのサポートを務め、2010年にはJandekと共作を発表する等、精力的に活動を行っている。待望の初来日。

Grouper is a recording and performance project by Liz Harris. Harris’ music
is a mixture of softly-strummed guitar, Wurlitzer keys, and her delicate, dreamy vocals, all of
which are heavily drenched in reverb.
Over the last few years she has quickly nudged herself into the underground spotlight with her peculiarly disarming music. Her journey began with the haunting midnight ambience of ‘Way Their Crept’ released on ex-Deerhoof member Rob Fisk’s Free Porcupine Society label in 2005. The record was instantly praised by British site Volcanic Tongue who described it as a ‘wildcard late entry for album of the year’, and its woozy blend of William Basinski-esque drone and breathy vocals slowly garnered the attention of music fans around the world. What followed over the next few years was a handful of stunning releases, from ‘Wide’ (again on FPS) to the haunting collaborative recording with Xiu Xiu entitled ‘Creepshow’. The following album
‘Cover the Windows and the Walls’ on Root Strata sold out in a matter of weeks.In 2008 she released ‘Dragging A Dead Deer Up A Hill’ through British imprint Type Records. The album achieved an unprecedented amount of critical acclaim, with respected US webzine Pitchfork mentioning it in their top albums of 2008, touting it as ‘druggy and sexy and arty and pretty, but never pretentious’. In 2009 she toured the USA in support of Animal Collective (one of the world’s biggest alternative acts), released split 7”s with City Center and Pumice and continues to stun audiences worldwide with her truly unique songs. 2010 saw the release of an EP/split called Vessel with Roy Montgomery. She has collaborated with Jandek, and was recently considered for participation in the Rolex Mentorship and Protege Award Program with Brian Eno.

Concern(Digitalis、Students of Decay、Arbor、Slow Flow
ハーシュノイズプロジェクトOscillating Innardsとしても多数の作品を発表しているGordon Ashworthによるアンビエントドローンプロジェクト。DigitalisやStudents of Decay、Arbor、Slow Flow等のレーベルから作品を発表している。弦楽器やテープ・マニュピレートを用いてドローンスケープを描きだす。
Concern is a sound art project of Gordon Ashworth. Since it’s inception in 2004, Ashworth has
created evocative music using acoustic instruments, tape manipulation, and field recordings as
Concern. Both the 2010 album “Caesarean” and the 2009 album “Truth and Distance” were made with acoustic instruments, field recordings, and tape manipulation. The results are tonally rich, ethereal harmonies that organically grow into deeply detailed drones and crumbling, antique-sounding tape loops. At times inexplicably spatial and layered, these compositions invoke highly
emotional and nostalgic states of consciousness. “Truth & Distance” was released by the Digitalis and Iatrogenesis labels and has been described as “nothing short of immense” (Boomkat) and “essential listening for the drone inclined.” (Aquarius)
The mediums used for Concern performances have varied from live manipulation of such
instruments as lap steel guitar, an antique zither, an African thumb piano, and unique, homemade
cassette looping systems. Since his first live performance in 2008, Ashworth has toured extensively as Concern, performing in over 60 cities throughout the US, Canada, Europe,
Australia and New Zealand. He will tour several cities in Europe and Japan in late 2010.
Gordon Ashworth lives in Portland, Oregon USA.
