Menhir is a collective formed by visual artist
Coco Moya and musician Iván Cebrián.
Their research is focused on the notion of speculative territory and states of consciousness, through sound installations, performances, rituals, videos or publications.
They want to create fields of action, capable of transform the relations between space, people, and all kinds of forces crossing it.
Their works are a kind of virtual menhirs, as if they were musical geopuncture, as a sound geomantic interpretation of the genius loci. Aming to re-territorialize it towards affection, belonging, and interdependance, under an animist techno-nature conception of life.
They have published several albums such us “Music for mountain” (2016), “Sound Track” (2018) at Submarine Broadcasting Company, the single “Osiris” (2021) at OigoVisiones Label, “Just Before Silence” with Suso Saiz at Phantom Limb (2021), and soon they will publish their latest LP “Geomantic works” (2022) at Piano and Coffee Records.
They have performed and showcased their works at art centers such as the Ciudadela Pamplona, Spanish Academy Rome, Casa Encendida, Matadero Madrid, Human Evolution Museum, LABoral Art Center, Cerezales Fundation, Centro Centro Cibeles, among others. And won art prizes and grants, such us “Claves” from the Daniel and Nina Carasso Foundation, “LABjoven Los Bragales” at LABoral Art Center, or the grant for art production by the Community of Madrid, and guest composers at EMS.
