Mary Lattimore
Mary Lattimore

Los Angeles-based Mary Lattimore uses her Lyon and Healy 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. As Pitchfork says about her, “Lattimore scouts the trail, finding long, thoughtful routes through both the harmonic landscape and exploiting her instrument’s broad expressive capacity, from glimmering hums to full-bodied sweeps.”
