About the show:
I'll say it - FAN LETTERS (née Alex Nathanson & Dylan Neely) is the future. Meaning that a lot of people seem to be very, very interested in finding that secret alchemical intersection between music performance, video games, good art, digital animation, multiple screens, and tech. The holy crossover where fluidity between forms - which we all seem to think is possible - is achieved. FAN LETTERS is there already, way ahead of many, and they happen to throw in a Duchamp-esque trash-loving playfulness and a John-Cage-approved dedication to performing something all the way through, even if it means just turning a bike wheel.
They are the only group (group? ensemble? what to call them? maybe they're a "band" after all) to ever make me really, really, really enjoy and passionately root for 100 games of rock paper scissors.

They've invited two *incredible* musicians to collaborate on some new work.

Kendall Williams is a master of the steel pan - a virtuoso of the instrument and a passionate scholar of its musics and possibilities. He'll be performing live alongside Fan Letters, who will be providing scores for improvisation and animating his performance.

Maria Chavez is a legitimate dark wizard of the turntables, willing to destroy with lightning bolts any tiny scrap of propriety or concern for how one should DJ, how one should care for records, and how one should not rub the needle of the turntable with a big ass rock. Though she rarely makes audio recordings of her insane live performances, Chavez will provide a pre-recorded soundtrack to Fan Letters animations, screened on our 153-inch plasma screen TV.

ALL IN ALL, NOT TO BE MISSED
