Fan Letters is an audiovisual collaboration between composer 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,” (Ben Seretan), “remarkable,” (Big Red & Shiny), and “difficult to describe” (Portland Press Herald).


We perform regularly, and are currently working on an evening-length dystopian opera, AutoComplete, which we hope to premiere in summer 2018. In the fall of 2017, we'll be developing AutoComplete during a residency at The Watermill Center.

Documentation for a few of our pieces is below.
