Mary Lattimore US – SOLD OUT

Sparkling harp symphonies and slow ambient

Like no other, Mary Lattimore explores the harp’s sonic possibilities through contemplative, nostalgic compositions. Here, the tones of the harp shimmer beautifully on a calm sea of ambient textures and gentle drones, while the listener is drawn into Lattimore’s wondrous dreamworld. The American harpist can be experienced at ALICE in March with her latest album, “Goodbye, Hotel Arkada,” which features members of The Cure and Slowdive, among others, as collaborators. The concert is seated.

Over her nearly decade-long career, Los Angeles-based harpist and composer Mary Lattimore has built a reputation as the most creative harpist in the alternative music scene through her experiments with the classical concert harp and effect pedals. Lattimore sounds like no one else as she curiously explores the countless sonic possibilities of the almost majestic instrument. Her distinctive signature allows memories, scenes, and split-second impressions to fill her musical universe, which has carried a unique nostalgic mood into all the various projects she has been a part of.

Since her debut album “The Withdrawing Room” in 2013, Mary Lattimore has released a wide range of albums, several of which have been praised by NPR, The New Yorker, and Pitchfork. Alongside her solo work, Lattimore has also composed film scores and written harp pieces for songs and compositions, collaborating over the years with prominent artists such as Meg Baird, Thurston Moore, Sharon Van Etten, Jarvis Cocker, Kurt Vile, Steve Gunn, Ed Askew, and Fursaxa.

With her latest album, “Goodbye, Hotel Arkada” (2023), Mary Lattimore takes us on yet another nostalgia-inducing journey. The title of the album speaks on one hand to a dilapidated Croatian hotel, filled with memories and atmospheres for Lattimore, but facing a modern renovation. On the other hand, the title speaks to the universal feeling of loss, change, and transience that we all share; things change, and nothing remains the same. Collaborators on “Goodbye, Hotel Arkada” include Lol Tolhurst (The Cure), Meg Baird, Rachel Goswell (Slowdive), Roy Montgomery, Samara Lubelski, and Walt McClements. Across six expansive pieces, rolling waves of harp, longing ambient, gentle drones, and airy vocal passages converge in longing compositions, making this album Lattimore’s most personal to date. There aren’t many harp soloists on the alternative music scene, so don’t cheat yourself out of a rare and sublime experience when Mary Lattimore performs at ALICE.”
