Although it might have seemed like an unexpected pairing, Circuit des Yeux had a genuine understanding and empathy for Mathison’s project and gave us an excellent, soul searching, haunted solo set. Over the last few years, she has always looked beyond the art of songwriting, using non-tonal material, tape hiss, noise, and initiatingcollaborations across musical genres, from jazz and folk to classical ensembles. So,she’s open to many other possibilities than composing songs. Although she reminded us that she is excellent at that too. A fascinating evening.
