Mind Over Mirrors in Residence

Friday, November 16, 2012 to Saturday, November 17, 2012

ISSUE Project Room presents two nights of new performance with musician and visual artist Jaime Fennelly. Best know as a founding member of the late Peeesseye with Chris Forsyth & Fritz Welch, Fennelly has been producing work under the moniker Mind Over Mirrors since relocating to a remote island of the coast of Washington in 2007. Utilizing an Indian pedal harmonium, oscillators, tape delays, and an assortment of synthesizing processors, Fennelly bends slowly-building, repetitive melodies into massive sonic mountains. Mind Over Mirrors’ third full-length album, Check Your Swing, is released Nov. 13 (Hands In the Dark).

A constant collaborator and innovator, he returns to New York to premiere a new work with internationally celebrated choreographer/performance artist Miguel Gutierrez. The following evening, Fennelly is joined by the longstanding Chicago band Zelienople to present his soundtrack for Donald Prokop's film Gone.
