Opera North Projects is delighted to announce a new commission, HYPNOSIS DISPLAY, from Grouper (Liz Harris) with filmmaker Paul Clipson.

Since 2006, Grouper, the solo recording and performing project of Portland based composer and musician Liz Harris, has been evolving a truly original sound, layering processed field recordings, vocals, guitar and drones in a series of releases and collaborative projects.

For this new commission, she joins forces with San Francisco based 16mm filmmaker Paul Clipson to create a meditation on contemporary America in sound and image. Shifting her gaze outwards from a typically intensely personal approach to making music, this new 1 hour 15 minute piece journeys through the landscapes of American mythmaking including the West Coast, the worker, the city and the street.

HYPNOSIS DISPLAY will premiere in Leeds on 5 June 2014 at the Howard Assembly Room. More information and ticket booking here.
