Circuit des Yeux is the brainchild of singer/songwriter/sound-sculptor Haley Fohr, who began mixing experimental soundscapes and evocative Indie/Psych Folk songs during college in Bloomington, Ind. before moving to Chicago in 2012. Recording and performing exclusively as a solo artist for years, Fohr’s touring isolation and immersion in Chicago’s avant-garde music scene helped open her up to more collaboration, resulting in last year’s striking In Plain Speech, Circuit des Yeux’s first album for Thrill Jockey Records. While still full of mystique and experimentation, the album is Fohr’s most resonant work yet, with her riveting baritone vocals surrounded by Chamber strings and oscillating atmospherics. Circuit des Yeux’s Cincy stop also features Seattle’s Mammifer, local cellist/singer/songwriter Kate Wakefield and a solo set from Tweens’ driving force, Bridget Battle.
