Billy Bultheel and Alexander Iezzi‘s Shadow Hunter performance and exhibition was on at New York’s No Moon, running August 1 to 14.
Both artists are based between Berlin and Rotterdam, where their respective practices span visual art, performance, text and music, drawing on literature, ecology, music history, and cyborg technology. Bultheel most notably collaborated on Golden Lion award-winner Anne Imhof’s recent Faust album, released on PAN this week.
In Shadow Hunter, the duo deconstruct sound through choreographed, game-like compositions and their own self-made instruments. Performing among an installation of these “modular music making machines”, Iezzi and Bultheel created an ambiguous electronic and analogue sonic world built around a short text that touches on military and survivalist themes. The music brings to mind the neo-baroque atmospheres and flourishes of contemporary video game soundtracks.**
