$7 | 9:00PM | 18+ Mind Over Mirrors is the solitary reeling of American harmoniumist/electronicist Jaime Fennelly. Utilizing an Indian pedal harmonium, oscillators, tape delays, and an array of synthesizing processors, Fennelly bends slowly-building, repetitive melodies into massive sonic mountains. Folklorist Brendan Greaves may have best summed up Mind Over Mirrors’ “referential 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 patience, its simultaneously formal and folk aspects, and its sheer, unabashed (if intermittently anxious) beauty, it doesn’t sound much like anything else being made today.” His fourth album, When The Rest Are Up At Four, was released last year on Immune Recordings, following releases on Digitalis, Hands In the Dark, & Aguirre/Gift Tapes. Fennelly co-founded the iconoclastic group Peeesseye (with guitarist Chris Forsyth & drummer/visual artist Fritz Welch) in Brooklyn in the early aughts, is one-third of psychedelic free jazz unit Acid Birds, is an active member/collaborator with Wrekmeister Harmonies, Zelienople, Scott Tuma and choreographer Miguel Gutierrez since 2001. He is a resident of Chicago, IL after living for three years on a remote island in the Salish Sea of Washington State, where the Mind Over Mirrors project was initially developed.
