Grouper & Paul Clipson
A meditation on contemporary America in sound and image.
Portland-based musician Grouper (Liz Harris) juxtaposes layers of processed field recordings, choral harmonies and keyboard in a resonant framework that moves behind and through a 16mm film by Paul Clipson. Clipson's densely rhythmical images in turn traverse Grouper's musical language to create startling, revelatory, and critical associations.
Together they invite the audience to participate in a collective mind's-eye trip through landscapes of American myth making. The West coast, the worker, the city and the street expose both their dissonance and their ephemeral allure.
