‘Reaching for Indigo: GAIA INFINITUS’ features members of the Netherlands Chamber Orchestra; watch the live performance of ‘Black Fly’
With Circuit des Yeux’s acclaimed latest album Reaching for Indigo, Haley Fohr created an unprecedented deep and rich sound, combining 50s & 60s avant-garde with drone, experimental folk and soul-baring arrangements. For a very special, one-time performance at Le Guess Who? 2018, Fohr enlisted an eight-piece ensemble featuring members of the Netherlands Chamber Orchestra to further expand the captivating compositions of the album. The show took place on November 11th at TivoliVredenburg and also included unreleased music from the album’s sessions.
Entitled Reaching for Indigo: GAIA INFINITUS, Circuit des Yeux now releases the recordings of the performance as a limited 300 count LP/DVD release via Drag City. The album features 100 different album covers as well as video documentation of the entire performance. It includes a previously unreleased song written during the Indigo era, Four Limbs, that is exclusively available on the vinyl version of the release.
The album is available to purchase now on Drag City, Bandcamp and circuitdesyeux.com. Watch the live video of Black Fly here.
