Zakiw a quiet celebration of life's ruins Favorite track: Holding. Colin Buchanan I spent a couple of weeks in the wild in this neck of the woods on my bike, waking under a tree with cicadas sitting atop me like lords.

Ruins was made in Alter, Portugal in 2011 on a residency set up by Valeria He dos Boys.

It was the first time ID sat still for a few years; processed a lot of political anger and emotional garbage. Recorded pretty simply, with a portable 4-track,Sony stereo mic and an upright piano.

I left the songs the way they came (microwave beep from when power went out after a storm); I hope that the album bears some resemblance to the place that I was in. Discussing her strong opinions about the spaces in which she chooses to perform, Harris said, “noise can be a perfect murmur in the background almost like another layer of tape hiss.” The interview, conducted by e-mail over the course of a few months, wasn’t for some big-name magazine; it’s tucked away on the blog page for Love Lion, the tape label run by Emily Elias (Angel Olsen, Implodes).

The conversation is as perfectly furtive as the music that Harris has created over the past 13 years. Written over the course of a week and a half, before a high fever brought the process to an abrupt end, Grid of Points is shrouded in that same “perfect murmur” that guided the quiet majesty of 2014’s Ruins.

Inspired by the idea that “something is missing or cold,” these seven songs are a trip to a room where Harris sits in near silence, pairing skeletal piano phrases with rich bursts of vocal harmony. The result is a release where the beauty that has long defined Harris’s music comes into sharp focus.

The seven songs on Points are meditations on the past, and the images that linger on despite the passing of time. “Driving” has a Julie Cruise-like ambience, with gentle plumes of piano and vocals that strain to immortalize unknowable moments.

On “The Races” and “Thanksgiving Song,” Harris confides once more into her four-track, harmonizing with herself in her small echo chamber. On these songs, and throughout the record, faint intakes of breath and pedaled piano notes double up like tiny absolution.

Paul Titch dreaming at the end of time Favorite track: Along The Main Divide. Montgomery uses E-bow and distortion, chorus and vibrato to make a soundscape for the New Zealand island.

Recorded on both coasts on a pair of Ta scam 4-tracks, the album is alternately wistful, windswept, skeletal, shredded, and strange. Solo guitar figures flow and fray through echo and empty space, evoking loss, long roads, and low-lit landscapes.

Background informationBirth name Elizabeth Anne Harris Born (1980-07-15) July 15, 1980 (age 40) West Marin, California, U.S. Origin Astoria, Oregon Occupation(s)Musician, singer-songwriter, producerYears active2005–presentLabelsYELLOWELECTRIC, Root Strata, West 25th, Peak Oil, Cranky Associated acts Mirroring, Slow Walkers, RAM, Xiu, Ilya Ahmed, Inca Ore, Roy Montgomery, Helen, Niche Grouper is the solo project of American musician, artist and producer Liz Harris (born July 15, 1980). Grouper released the critically acclaimed Dragging a Dead Deer Up a Hill in 2008, followed by five more records, including a two-part album, A A, and the piano-led album Ruins.

Harris was born July 15, 1980, in Northern California and grew up around the San Francisco Bay Area. She grew up in a Fourth Way commune there which was inspired by the philosophy of George Gurdjieff.

The community was known as “The Group”, which would later serve as some inspiration for the moniker Grouper. According to Harris, the kids called each other and the parents 'groupers' sort of as a defiance.

After finishing college, Harris briefly moved to Los Angeles, where she worked with Mayo Thompson at Patrick Painter. Harris’ first album was 2005 ’s Grouper, a self-released full-length CD-R, followed later that year by Way Their Crept on Free Porcupine (re-released in 2007 on Type Records).

Harris made available new material steadily through the years, and continued to collaborate with various artists such as Roy Montgomery and Bela. In 2008, she released Dragging a Dead Deer Up a Hill.

An Music reviewer Heather Shares praised the album for showing more musical range than Harris' previous work and for “letting more melody, more structured songs, and even a few phrases emerge from the ether.” Pitchfork gave it 8.2 stars calling the work “an arresting album of pastoral psychedelic pop”.

Early in 2012, Grouper performed Violet Replacement in the UK and Europe, a pair of long form tape collage pieces which originally took shape for commissioned performances in New York and Berkeley. Besides, she collaborated with Jess Fortin of Tiny Vipers to release an album Foreign Body under their common moniker Mirroring.

At Berlin's Club Transmediale festival in early February 2012 Harris performed Circular Veil in collaboration with Were Cantu-Ledesma. Somewhere between an installation and a performance, it found her extending her more concise music outward into eight hours of music, designed to mimic one full sleep cycle.

Grouper's studio album titled Ruins was released on October 31, 2014. The album is relatively stripped-down; piano, voice and field recordings.

The majority of the album was recorded in Alter, Portugal in 2011, while Harris was on a residency set up by Valeria He dos Boys. That same year she appeared on The Bug'album providing vocals for the track “Void”.

Her curated program included films La Double Vie DE Véronique by Krzysztof Kielowski and Lighthouse by Paul Clip son and music performances from artists Marisa Anderson, William Basin ski, Marcia Bassett & Samara Labels duo, Boltzmann/Leigh, Skin Film, Meiji Having, Roy Montgomery, Coby SEY, Tiny Vipers, Wolfgang Vogt and Richard Young's. During her days as a part of a Fourth Way commune, Harris' primary sources for discovering music were limited.

With a little help from her parents, whose musical tastes were eccentric and divergent, she discovered Eastern European folk and American avant-pop. Through her father, who himself was a composer, she would later discover contemporary classical and early music.

In 2008, when she released Dragging a Dead Deer Up a Hill, Pitchfork compared it to classic ethereal releases from the British label 4AD, drawing comparisons to Cocteau Twins and early His Name Is Alive. The Portland Mercury described some songs from the album, such as “Wind and Snow” and “Stuck”, sonically reminiscent of the Renaissance period composers Geraldo and Monteverdi.

^ Harris revealed her birthdate in a post via her official Instagram account, which reads: “Two months I squealed my way into the world on Ian Curtis birthday” (Curtis was born July 15, 1956). Grouper's Liz Harris Explains the Art of the Paradox and the Beauty of Mistakes”.

“Mt St Helen 40 years ago today. Two months later I squealed my way into the world on Ian Curtis' birthday, who died two weeks after the eruption”.
