Gazelle Twin - The Dream Ends
About The Dream Ends
Eliot's blend of doom and pastoral imagery chimes very strongly with the world I am currently working within for my next album, so I was already quite well tuned into the feeling of the poem. I wanted it to feel like being chased through the woods by madmen with pitchforks and burning torches.
Gazelle Twin is a moniker for independent artist, Elizabeth Bernholz. Her musical output takes an unconventional approach to production and live performance, featuring changing personas, themes and multiple genres.
Her widely acclaimed 2014 electronic album 'Unflesh' (Anti-Ghost Moon Ray) was The Quietus' Album of the Year 2014, and featured in The New York Times, NPR's Top 10 Electronic albums 2014, Uncut's Top 75 of 2014, Wondering Sound's Top 100, The Guardian writers' choice, and BBC Radio 3's Max Reinhardt described it a "classic of our time". The album toured extensively, internationally from 2013 to 2015 including performances at Unsound Adelaide, CTM Berlin, Future Everything Singapore, M For Montreal, Brighton Festival, and the Barbican London.
Elizabeth Bernholz frequently collaborates. She created an electronic soundtrack to the play ’Nuclear War’ (Royal Court Theatre, April 2017) by Simon Stephens, directed by Imogen Knight. In 2015, she was commissioned to record a cover of Brian Wilson’s ‘Love & Mercy’ for USA TV programme, The Walking Dead. Her music has been reworked by artists such as Clint Mansell, Carter Tutti (Throbbing Gristle), Tara Busch (I Speak Machine), Blanck Mass and Perc, and she has remixed Gary Numan, and John Foxx.
Gazelle Twin's most recent show 'Kingdom Come For Two Vocalists' is performed on treadmills by Natalie Sharp (Lone Taxidermist), Stuart Warwick, and BERNHOLZ (Jez Bernholz). The ongoing tour includes performances at Sonar Barcelona, CTM Berlin, Rewire at The Hague, and Sensoria Sheffield.
