A version of this work was commissioned for BODE 2017 presentation at New York Fashion Week. The show was produced by Tenaya Kelleher.

The title is taken from Gaston Bachelard's "The Poetics of Space."

dylan neely is a composer and performer from new york. he’s reasonably averse to the
pretensions of the short artist autobiography written in the third person. musically, dylan is
interested in exploring what semantics in abstract audio could mean, or where meaning might
be located in non-phonetic sound, while also trying to write things that people like because they
sound nice/cool/interesting. his music appears in forms including film and theater scoring, opera,
interactive audiovisual performance, and sound installation.

dylan performs regularly with fan letters, an interactive audiovisual performance collaboration
with the video artist alex nathanson. in roles including composer, violinist, arranger, and producer,
he’s been lucky enough to work with such extraordinary artists and ensembles as alvin curran,
american composers’ orchestra, attacca quartet, bill baird, darko lungulov, ensemble móbile,
george lewis, madalyn merkey, marcel dzama, mills contemporary performance ensemble,
molissa fenley, nic collins, pauchi sasaki, pauline oliveros, paul cantelon, robert wilson,
salome chamber orchestra, wadada leo smith, wolfgang tillmans, and ziembalopiccolo.

dylan has worked in the music department on award-winning films and tv series including
mozart in the jungle, demolition, everybody knows elizabeth murray, bleed for this, and
havana motor club. he’s composed music for documentaries and short films that have been
featured at theaters including anthology film archives, the museum of the moving image, and
the phillips collection (washington d.c.). his music for film and theater is available through
naxos licensing.

dylan received his b.a. from bard college at simon’s rock and m.f.a. from mills college, where he was
privileged to study with zeena parkins, roscoe mitchell, and fred frith. he’s completed additional studies
at the belgrade conservatory while on a fulbright fellowship to serbia, as well as at juilliard. some places
he’s spent time during residencies or festivals that he regards fondly are flux factory (queens ny), highscore
(pavia italy), simn (curitiba brazil), and the watermill center (li ny); and, some places he’s honored to have
performed include lincoln center, symphony space, the stone, moma ps1, issue project room, and la mama.
