Grouper

A I A

· by Michel Rondeau

The sound universe of Liz Harris, alias Grouper, is instantly recognizable. Slow, languorous melodies and misty, cushiony atmospheres, evanescent voices rising from the ruins of musical tracks swallowed up by reverb effects. Her vocal and instrumental tracks are so doctored, it’s as if she passed them dozens of times through a photocopier to erase their outlines. Combining two LPs that had only briefly been available on one CD, A I A Dream Loss/Alien Observer is one of the most outstanding examples of the Grouper way. The music of oblivion!
