Fan Letters

Fan Letters is an audiovisual collaboration between musician Dylan Neely and multimedia artist Alex Nathanson. Their work combines sound, video, and handmade electronic instruments into playful and thought-provoking interactive multimedia performances. Shows oscillate between noise and chamber music, from experimental cinema to Saturday morning cartoons, and political negotiations to schoolyard games. Their work has been described as “that secret alchemical intersection between music performance, video games, good art, digital animation, multiple screens, and tech,” and as “difficult to describe.”

Based in NY, Fan Letters has played in squats, DIY spaces, museums, and concert halls throughout the US, Canada, and Europe. Notable performances of their work have occurred at the Museum of the Moving Image, Film Society of Lincoln Center, Silent Barn, and Flux Factory; their work has been presented by MATA Interval and Queens New Music Festival, and supported by the Foundation for Contemporary Arts. Most recently, they were awarded a residency at The Watermill Center, to develop their upcoming opera, titled Autocomplete.
