SHAPE Platform: Grand River

Ambient

Grand River is the alias of Dutch-Italian producer, composer and DJ Aimée Portioli. In keeping with the name, Portioli’s musical output is lush and expansive, and remains in a constant state of flux. As past projects – such as 2017’s gorgeous Crescente EP – attest, Portioli’s music ebbs and flows between ambient and experimental music, shot through with a cinematic flare and her classical inclinations.

Portioli’s mix for the SHAPE Platform takeover is populated by tracks from fellow downtempo dreamers such as Huerco S. and Guido Flichman, as well as work from Irena and Vojtěch Havlovi, and the late Jon Hassell. It also includes a track from Swedish duo Bandhagens Musikförening, who released a new project in November 2021 via Portioli’s own One Instrument label. Subtle and meandering with the occasional detour through sprightlier realms, this is a mix fit for deep listening and thoughtful contemplation.

Grand River is a member of SHAPE Platform’s 2021 roster. The seven-year initiative is a platform for innovative music and audiovisual art, co-funded by the Creative Europe programme of the European Union. Portioli’s contribution is presented by TodaysArt in The Hague, Netherlands.

SHAPE is inviting listeners to show support for Ukraine by donating to the National Bank of Ukraine and Help Ukraine Center.
