NEO Hülcker + mocrep
Neo Hülcker is a Berlin-based composer-performer whose work focuses on music as anthropological research in everyday life environments. Their compositions evolve as situations, performance-installations, actions and interventions, and deal with digital subculture (like ASMR), childhood, human-animal-relations, queer practice and cultural hacking.
Mocrep commissioned them for the first time in 2016, when they created crackles for the Summer Courses for New Music at Darmstadt. In 2017, Hülcker traveled to Chicago to work on Good Dog, which they performed with the ensemble.
