Eerie and uncannily beautiful, Haley Fohr’s deeply haunting 4-octave voice floats atop ambient synths, 12-string guitar, piano and organ. Her sound is unhurried and filled with space for meditative pauses – transcendent and hypnotic. Featuring special guests Humanbeast and Dutch Experts!

About the Event
Circuit des Yeux (Chicago, Il)
Haley Fohr is most distinctly identified by her 4-octave voice and unique style of 12-string guitar. Her mysterious “Jackie Lynn” project landed her on the cover of Wire Magazine in August of 2016. Her recent works include an Original Soundtrack for Charles Bryant’s silent film Salomé (1923), commissioned by Opera North, and her critically acclaimed 2021 album -io, released on Matador Records.
"The undimmed impact of Fohr's voice -a tarry, cold-pressed blend of Nico and Anohni -is an unsurprisingly vital component of its uncanny negative-space chill, but it's underpinned by the sheer intergalactic drama of her arrangements” -MOJO
“Fohr gives her emotions that magnificent and terrifying magnitude through her lyrics, as well as her instrumentation” -The Quietus
"Strikingly original" -The Times
Humanbeast (NYC) is artist duo, Eli V Manuscript and Maralie Armstrong-Rial, who use ritual performance, music, sound, video, and symbolic gesture in their immersive live experiences. Their latest album, Divine Redeemer, is described as old-growth Solar music for Lunar reflection on the elemental nature of loss. These songs sprout forth from the anima of a city estranged, punctuated by crepuscular engine chortles of garbage/delivery trucks. Born of divining rod hydromancy, dew-grass and mycelia vigils, and humus of the forest floor seeding daemons in devotional ferment as ivy climbs a graffiti wall. Humanbeast's mystical performance will mark their first in Brattleboro, VT.
"Subversive, performance-art-cum-electrified-noise-bass-music, Humanbeast's performances are marked by high-intensity, challenging performance, employing ritualistic practices and marrying challenging, symbolic gesture with throbbing walls of white noise, analog synthesis, the primeval wail of human voice and the cold, distant utterings of computer speech" -Shawn Greenlee
Dutch Experts (Brattleboro, VT)
Combines classic 80s new wave and shoe gaze sensibility with a modern twist. Drawing on inspiration from the Cure, Cocteau Twins, and Kate Bush, singer-songwriter Hannah Hoffman’s commanding vocals and undulating synth are driven by chorus-laden bass lines, paying homage to an aesthetic gone by. Their first EP, recorded and mixed by Mikey Allred of Dark Art Audio (All Them Witches, Inter Arma, Barishi), is slated to be released in 2022.
