Mary Lattimore & Jeff Zeigler, Acteurs 

When: Thu., Sept. 25, 9:30 p.m. 2014
Price: $10
On their lyrical, meditative new album, Slant of Light (Thrill Jockey), the Philadelphia duo of harpist Mary Lattimore and keyboardist-guitarist Jeff Zeigler create the sonic equivalent of a dimly lit sauna, with all the enveloping warmth and permeating calm that implies. Their four seductive improvisations float leisurely, without sharp edges or dissonance. Lattimore, who’s collaborated with Meg Baird and Steve Gunn and in 2011 appeared on Thurston Moore’s acoustic album Demolished Thoughts, plucks cascades of resonant notes that Zeigler swathes in amorphous, caressing drones. Her harp’s natural tone complements Zeigler’s synths, and occasionally she electronically manipulates the instrument too—her notes sometimes bend crazily, or accelerate and decelerate in clusters. For this concert, Lattimore and Zeigler’s first in town as a duo, they’ll provide a live soundtrack for Le Révélateur, a rarely screened 1968 silent movie by experimental French filmmaker Philippe Garrel; the performance has his blessing. —Peter Margasak
