interbellum is an audiovisual collective consisting of the musicians and instrument builders Nathan Marcus and Loden Rietveld and theatre designers Malou Palmboom and Aimée Gersons, based in Utrecht, the Netherlands. The collective creates immersive audiovisual performances and carefully constructed dreamscapes.
interbellum’s newest project “symbiotic interlude” explores how nature and technology meet. How do these seemingly opposite entities connect and what do natural and technological systems have in common? Join us in our alternative reality where rugged rainforests meet cable clutter and fireflies move to electronic music.
this is us:
conducts tactile and textile experiments to create organic shapes in mythical spaces to connect human and nature. Oversees the whole, ensures the landscape maintains a fluid and elegant feel.
fuses scenography & instruments to dream-like worlds. Magic motions, materials, shades. Lives & breathes interbellum since its dawn and nurtures the set until the last second of every performance.
hears and unveils the details of the sounds of the little things through invented instruments. Converts recorded fields into pulsating computer code and breathing lights. Birthed interbellum during wine-fueled nights with Loden.
hacks and solders the most complicated electronics patiently in order to give them life as an unpredictable musical being. Melts unearthly organic sounds to morphing compositions. Birthed interbellum during wine-fueled nights with Nathan.
