"Eyes Like Saucers is the solo project of Jeffrey K., formerly the Farfisa organist for Secret Eye recording artists urDog. Eyes Like Saucers explores the darker, more organic regions of inner space via a slightly modified Indian pedal harmonium, effected voice, percussion and electronics. Drawing inspiration from such artists as Nico, Robert Wyatt, Popol Vuh, Current 93, and early 20th century German poet, Georg Trakl, Eyes Like Saucers channels the incessant and labored breathing of the ancient harmonium to evoke a mood that is bleak and doom-laden, while reaching for the sublime. The title Still Living In The Desert (And Mostly Inside My Own Head) is derived from a late journal entry of Nico's. Jeffrey spent most of the year 2006 living within a Volkswagen van in the northern Arizona desert, with his dog, his harmonium, and a 4-track cassette recorder, and much of the material on Still Living... he recorded during this period. The music often betrays a childlike simplicity -- as though the artist were completely unaware of what he was doing; yet a close, critical examination will reveal that certain patterns and structures do emerge, and perhaps even more. There is undoubtably a cohesiveness, a logic, and, for want of a better term, an underlying -- and unstated and inextricable -- 'numinosity.'"
