Mind Over Mirrors: Bellowing Sun
  • Mind Over Mirrors, the evolving project by Chicago-based musician and composer Jaime Fennelly, premieres Bellowing Sun, a performance that expands Fennelly’s solo practice as a harmoniumist and synthesist, to include a panoramic ensemble made up of vocalist and percussionist Janet Beveridge Bean, violinist Jim Becker, and percussionist Jon Mueller. The four musicians share an interest in the places where the American vernacular and contemporary avant-garde intersect. Bellowing Sun places the musicians in the center of the room, with audiences seated on the stage encircling a large kinetic sculpture suspended overhead, designed in collaboration with Timothy Breen, Eliot Irwin, and Keith Parham. The centerpiece illuminates the room with live animation and gradual changes in light and color, allowing viewers to see and react to their fellow audience members in this enticing audiovisual environment.
