Claire Rousay has announced the Sunset Poem EP, which sees the experimental artist reworking three songs from Circuit des Yeux’s 2021 album -io. It’s due out on October 20. She’s also shared her version of ‘Sculpting the Exodus’ to accompany the announcement. Check it out below, along with the EP’s cover art, tracklist, and a video of the two artists in conversation.
“I found Claire Rousay’s music when we were all stuck inside for 2 years,” Circuit des Yeux’s Haley Fohr said in a press release. “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 honor to give Claire the stems of -io. The results are beguiling and immense, like watching lead pipes slowly melt into a metallic river.”
