Rewire x Korzo
We Are Public
It's already the fourth season of the succesfull concert series between international festival for innovative music Rewire and the adventurous music theatre Korzo. This fifteenth edition welcomes musician and vocalist Liz Harris - also known as Grouper - who will join forces with guitarist Roy Montgomery, as well as a solo performance by Mary Lattimore, on grand harp and electronics.
Liz Harris (Grouper, or Nivhek) from Astoria (U.S.A.) is well known for her ambient folk. She usually manages to conjure up a dark drone-like sound. At Rewire x Korzo, she plays together with the New Zealand guitarist Roy Montgomery. They have collaborated before in 2010 on a split EP and in 2018 she played on his LP Suffuse. Just like Harris, Montgomery has a minimalist approach to music, but with more noise and power. A rare chance to hear both grandmasters together live.
Mary Lattimore is a Los Angeles-based musician who uses her concert grand harp to conjure up beautifully abstracted forms that evoke a host of memories, landscapes and allusions. Across a breadth of recordings, collaborations and art commissions her music explores a realm of wordless narratives and indefinite travelogues, where – with the help of effects and occasional vocals - extended harp improvisations morph into spectral songforms. In live performance she reveals the impressionist magic of her chosen instrument, blurring classical technique and ambient electronics to beguiling effect.
Herz Ensemble, Kate Moore

Moving Guitars Nederlandse première
Moving Guitars is a performance where music, images, and dance enter into a dialogue with each other. Movement is the one element uniting them. Refined ancient dances played on baroque guitar by Izhar Elias are set against rough new sounds on the electric guitar by composer Florian Magnus Maier.
