Circuit des Yeux with Jon Mueller
7:30pm doors, 8:30pm show. Proof of COVID vaccination is required upon entry.
Circuit des Yeux has released new song and video, ‘The Manatee(A Story of This World Pt. III)’. Recorded during the sessions for last year’s masterful and multi-layered full-length -io,‘The Manatee’ is a shift in mood – serene astral folk sewn up with whirring aquatic interludes.
Circuit des Yeux’s Haley Fohr says:
“At 4:30 A.M. on February 4th, 2020 a manatee popped out of the sea and stared directly at me. It was a charged 10 seconds. The experience stuck with me so much that I wrote a song about it.The music video (directed by Rudy Rubio) is a depiction of my own kind of manatee. I play a wet sea creature trying to make it work in a dry-land society. It is inspired by the scientific understanding that the manatee crawled into the ocean 50,000,000 years ago. The manatee is my reminder that intuition and two legs might be all a person needs to find a more hospitable world -perhaps an undiscovered place to call home.”
Circuit des Yeux has also announced European and North American tour dates for 2022.
Jon Mueller’s aim has been to move drums, percussion and rhythm from its anticipated backbeat to a central musical focus, something more intuitive and natural than usually imagined. Audiences throughout the United States, Canada, Europe, Japan, and the United Kingdom have experienced this idiosyncratic point of view as, paradoxically, both ‘cathartic’ and ‘meditative’. Notable solo performances have taken place at the Guggenheim Museum, New Museum, Musée des Beaux-Arts de Montréal, Alverno Presents, SXSW, Big Ears Festival, Hopscotch Fest and Witching Hour Festival.
