Opaque assemblages of Mellotron, guitar, field
recordings, tapes and broken FX pedals by Pacific
Northwest musician Liz Harris, created during and after
two contrasting residencies in the Azores, Portugal and
Murmansk, Russia and combined with pieces made at
home in Astoria, Oregon. The collection’s unique dual
design functions as a forked path, existing independently of
one another but with roots intertwined. She cites her score
for Hypnosis Display as a compositional reference point,
inspired by “interior mnemonic device landscapes” and
“curiosity around a sadness.”
In pacing, palette and poignancy, these sides rank among
Harris’ most stark, primordial work: fragile, feverish,
ominous and otherworldly. She describes this music as “a
requiem, a ritual, to unlock and release feelings,” a sense
of shadowy masses, moving backwards, in spirals, massive
doorways opening chaotic forces, “a toxic concentrated
reduction of something much darker bubbling beneath.”
Her artistry for mapping richly detailed inner worlds is
nowhere more expressive and enigmatic, vibrations and
voices gliding dimly out of the void, “wraithlike and
ethereal, their existence in the mist questionable.”
Initially released in a private edition that vanished
almost as quickly as it was announced, After Its Own Death
/ Walking In A Spiral Towards The House is presented here
in a beautiful second edition on Superior Viaduct’s imprint
W.25TH.
