We are thrilled to announce that next spring Mind Over Mirrors will take up residency at the Museum of Contemporary Art in Chicago for two nights to premiere their major new piece Bellowing Sun, featuring a large interactive kinetic sculpture and expressly commissioned by the MCA. If you caught the quartet on tour this Spring with Brokeback, then you recognize the visceral power of seeing/hearing Jaime Fennelly‘s compositions live.

The MCA describes the performance:

Bellowing Sun is performed with the audience encircling the musicians underneath a large kinetic sculpture. The visual centerpiece, designed in collaboration with Timothy Breen, Eliot Irwin, and Keith Parham, was hand-built in the shape of a great lighted drum. A rotating cylindrical textile adorned with patterns, abstract figures, and dyed gradients creates an ever-changing kaleidoscope of organic shapes and color that simultaneously form celestial bodies and microscopic life forms. The radiant audiovisual environment results in a space, not unlike a Quaker meeting room, for people to withraw from daily life and consider questions of the human spirit”.

Bellowing Sun will be performed Friday, April 6th and Saturday, April 7th 2018.
