While coping with shattered expectations and forced into a reflective mode, Chris Beaulieu’s solo project vireo unfolds like origami in slow motion. “In Leealanau” layers field recordings, modular synths, keys, guitar and voice around each other without any sort of hard edged boundary between sound sources. Lines introduce themselves, repeat, fade back and reappear with faint linear traces. Listeners can approach this as an open audio field – as all sounds being present at all times, emphasis added for effect.
