Announced: Circuit Des Yeux & Claire Rousay -Sunset Poem EP

On Sunset Poem, experimental musician Claire Rousay reworks three songs from Circuit des Yeux’s otherworldly 2021 album, -io. The complete EP will be out on October 20th.

Rousay’s work often utilises environmental recordings to cultivate rich and evocative ambience. Here, the composer unspools three -io compositions –’Vanishing,’ ‘Sculpting the Exodus,’ and ‘Argument’ – stripping back layers of instrumentation and sheltering Fohr’s voice amid a weave of hushed electronic textures. The results reveal a newly tender, meditative, and boundless space within the songs.

Circuit des Yeux shares “I found Claire Rousay’s music when we were all stuck inside for 2 years. Her music kind of gave me the atmosphere of company in a solitary reality. It reminded me of the way I used to interact with music when I was a teenager. A room can become a whole ecosystem once the music is playing. Her deft ability to work with sound in a microscopic way is what makes this collaboration so successful. It was an honour to give Claire the stems of -io. The results are beguiling and immense, like watching lead pipes slowly melt into a metallic river.”
