Grouper premieres ‘Circular Veil’ in Germany

Circular Veil is the fourth in an ongoing ambient tape collages series by musician/artist Grouper aka Liz Harris. Accompanied by collaborator Jefre Cantu-Ledesma, this is a new durational performance which sees Harris create a customised sonic/visual environment designed to lull participants into a sort of waking sleep – a collective dreaming room in which audience and performers may experience this paradox collectively.

2 dates have just been announced:

Sat 4 Feb Berlin, CTM Festival @ HAU2
Tue 7 Feb Cologne, Alte Feuerwache
