Description

Den Chicago-baserede sangerinde Circuit des Yeux vender tilbage til København med sine intense sange, sin rå stemmeføring og sit atmosfæriske univers. Med sig har hun sit fremragende nye album “-io”. ALICE glæder sig til at præsentere hende i trio-opsætning på Ideal Bar. Spellcaster åbner med et soloset.

Døre kl 19 / Koncert kl 20
Bemærk: Koncerten foregår på Ideal Bar
Circuit des Yeux – aka amerikanske Haley Fohr – er en usædvanlig sangerinde med en dyb og rå stemmeføring og et atmosfærisk univers, der trækker på både syret folk, dramatisk rock, avantgarde, elektroniske klange og jazzet improvisation. Udtrykket kan forekomme indadvendt, men indfanger alligevel lytteren med en ufattelig intensitet. Musikkens rå og foruroligende nærvær løftes af en stemme, som kan lede tanken hen på dramatiske vokaler som Diamanda Galás, Patty Waters og Odetta i skøn forening. En stemme, der kan glide fra dommedagstungt mørke til flænsende skrig. 

Det sjette album fra Circuit des Yeux var i støbeskeen i 2019, da tabet af en nær ven pludselig sendte hende ud i en musikalsk skriveblokade. Men et storslået residency i det solbeskinnede Florida, som midt i sorgen blev tynget af modløshed og absurditet, efterfulgt af en lang, mørk corona-pandemi, fik hende til at opdigte en verden inden i verden: “-io – a place where everything is ending all the time". Det blev både et sted at håndtere sorgen og elendigheden, og samtidig temaet og titlen til hendes nye album. I modsætning til tidligere guitarbaserede albums fra Circuit des Yeux, er “-io” skrevet på orgel- og klaver, og arrangeret for et 23-personers orkester, som samler strygere, blæsere, og trommer om hendes atmosfæriske vokalmelodier. Circuit des Yeux har spillet flere udsolgte koncerter på ALICE. Vi glæder os til igen at kunne præsentere hende, når hun til oktober gæster Ideal Bar i trio-opsætning og præsenterer et af sine stærkeste albums til dato.

Spellcaster

Spellcaster er musikdrama; digital orkestermusik, elektroniske manipulationer og bølgende soundscapes sammenholdt af en forsigtig poppet sensibilitet i sangteksterne. Bag Spellcaster er komponist holger hartvig, men med den nye udgivelse, operaen “memo” (Anyines, Forlaget Virkelig, 2022), tager Spellcaster form som et kollektiv, et stort orkester, med mange forskellige karakterer. På torsdag kan man opleve Spellcaster solo, når hartvig opfører dele af “memo” som karakteren Anybardinthegrass.
holger hartvig har været et uundgåeligt navn på den danske eksperimenterende undergrundsscene de seneste ti år. Han står bag grupper som Synd & Skam, LOL Beslutning og boli group, og har alle dage arbejdet med en forfriskende ukonventionel tilgang til komposition og musikproduktion.

In English:

The Chicago-based musician Circuit des Yeux returns to Copenhagen with her intense songs and dramatic, raw vocals. In a trio setup, she will take over Ideal Bar presenting “-io”, one of her strongest albums to date. Spellcaster is opening the night.

A fearless explorer and an extremely intense performer, Circuit des Yeux – aka American musician Haley Fohr – returns to Copenhagen with her powerful voice, haunting songs and atmospheric universe drawing from acid folk, dramatic rock, avantgarde and jazzy improvisation. Even though her expression may seem introverted, she captures her audience with great intensity with a voice reminiscent of great singers like Diamanda Galás, Patty Waters and Odetta.

Before the pandemic cast its weather of mourning on the world, and before she began weaving together her sixth album as Circuit Des Yeux, -io, Haley Fohr found herself grieving a close friend, a loss that severed her from her art. But at a residency at the gorgeous house of Robert Rauschenberg in sunny Florida, that seemed absurd in the middle of her grief, followed by a long, dark pandemic, Fohr began to cultivate a world inside the world, a world called -io, "a place where everything is ending all the time." This became a space for her to begin moving again, but also the theme and the title of her new album. Unlike earlier guitar-driven albums of Circuit des Yeux, “-io” is written on organ and piano for a 23-piece orchestra, gathering strings, horns, and drums around her daring vocal melodies. Circuit des Yeux has already played several sold-out shows at ALICE, so don’t miss the chance to experience her with her trio, presenting one of her strongest albums to date.

Spellcaster

Spellcaster is music drama; digital orchestral music, electronic manipulations and wavy soundscapes juxtaposed with pop sensibility within the lyrical narratives. Behind Spellcaster is composer holger hartvig, but Spellcaster and their opera memo (Anyines, 2022) include several characters. It is the character Anybardinthegrass, embodied by holger, who performs in Spellcaster this Thursday before Circuit des Yeux at Ideal Bar.

As part of both the pioneering and critically acclaimed groups Synd og Skam and LOL Beslutning, as well as in Brynje and boli group, holger hartvig has long been practicing a daring and unconventional approach to composing and producing and has been known as an intriguing voice in the frontier of the Copenhagen underground scene since the early 2010s.
