"Mind Over Mirrors, the evolving project of Chicagoan Jaime Fennelly and more recently, Haley Fohr of Circuit des Yeux, deploys modest acoustic constituent materials - an Indian pedal harmonium and the human voice - to produce roiling, meditative music that both simulates the swells and troughs of synthesized electronics and conjures the ceaseless rhythms of tidal surges. While we can point out referential sonic compass points - G.I. Gurdjieff's harmonium improvisations; certain particularly harmonically viscous recordings of Sacred Harp singers; Edward Artemiev's soundtracks to Tarkovsky films - in its prayerful patience, its simultaneously formal and folk aspects, and its unabashed (if intermittently anxious) beauty, it doesn't sound much like anything else being made today. There is an easy, and unusual, confluence of praise and play at work in Jaime's music that catalyzes heady reverie." (label info) comes with download code
