Mind Over Mirrors, the evolving project of 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.

The Voice Calling, the newest recording from Mind Over Mirrors finds Fennelly’s lexicon expanding in striking ways with the welcome but unexpected addition of Haley Fohr. With her incantatory vocals, fellow Chicagoan Fohr, well regarded for her arresting recordings as Circuit des Yeux, supplements the gorgeous, woozy speechlessness of Fennelly’s Indian pedal harmonium, augmented by oscillators, tape delays, and synthesizing processors. Channeling Catherine Ribeiro and latter-day Scott Walker’s declamatory, dramatic deliveries, Fohr contributes a new textual dimension with her occasional, elliptical lyrics, edging the music further into corporeality and away from abstraction.
