Heartnoize, MeetFactory & Scrape Sound Inc. present:
Deep sadness and personal trauma. From the dark reality and bleak grief over the loss of a close friend, Haley Fohr escapes into -io, a metaphysical space bathed in an all-consuming warm orange, a space where the sunset never begins and never ends.
Before writing her sixth album, Fohr, aka Circuit des Yeux, went through a period of personal and creative crisis and emptiness. She has translated her anguish into her most complex recording to date-io, which interweaves atmospheric soundscapes, a heady four-octave voice and haunting string sections with claustrophobic lyrics. The -io album has garnered significant acclaim and made the annual charts of several major magazines, including The Wire, Crack, Magnet and NPR Music.
Along with the new record, she will be touring North America and Europe this summer and fall with a stop at Prague’s MeetFactory.
