Ukrainian duo Bad News From Cosmos have been making music together for nearly a decade now. Hailing from the Black Sea port city of Odessa, Andrii Hrachov and Iryna Bodnar’s music is built from cosmic synth and drum machines, plodding along simply and blissfully beneath a starry night sky. For the past three years, Iryna and Andrii have been recording music in Odessa – at times as Bad News from Cosmos, at times as their alter ego Heima Matti –, while exchanging views with Carreyn, who was shooting peculiar video sequences on a tennis court (Kosmadomamama), in a hotel in front of a seashore (One Hundred Twenty Stars), in the Meuse region (Ker-Xavier dans la Meuse)…
In 2017, as the Ukrainian duet was touring in France, the opportunity to bring all of them together was finally offered by the art center vents des forêts, who invited them to join Carreyn for a residency in the forest. The video Like the Flames is a living painting of Iryna and Andrii having Déjeuner sur l’herbe (“luncheon on the grass”), Carreyn using his low-resolution video mode as an adaptation of the impressionist approach and reversing the standards of music videos with its unusual rhythm.
