"Circuit Des Yeux, the main musical outlet of Chicago-based composer Haley Fohr, has undergone a remarkable transformation in recent years. Early albums like 2011’s harrowing and heartfelt Portrait pulled listeners into an insular world using only Fohr’s guitar and her haunting, multi-octave voice. Gradually, she began opening the project to trusted collaborators, first on 2013’s Overdue and 2015’s In Plain Speech and later as Jackie Lynn, a cocaine-dusted alter-ego backed by Chicago synth jammers Bitchin Bajas. On her new album -io, Fohr expands her vision to include an entire orchestra, while working alongside returning collaborators including Cooper Crain (Bitchin Bajas) and Whitney Johnson (Matchess), to towering results."
