In 2016, Gazelle Twin created “Kingdom Come”, an audio-visual performance depicting a fascist hell-scape based on JG Ballard’s final novel, released in 2017, and in 2018 Bernholz’s third studio album “Pastoral” was released.
Gazelle Twin is unsigned and releases music under Bernholz’s own label, Anti-Ghost Moon Ray, but has also released music on Lakeshore Records (US), Invada Records (UK), Last Gang Records (US/CAN), Moog Music Library (US), The Vinyl Factory (UK), NMC Recordings (UK), and Sugarcane Recordings (US).

NYX is a collaborative drone choir using live electronics and extended vocal techniques. Collaborations to date include Hatis Noit, Iona Fortune, Alicia Jane Turner, Christina Vantzou and Belinda Zhawi, and recent installation / live performances include collaborations with Dan Tobin Smith for London Design Festival, performing with Sigur Rós at BST in Hyde Park, at Rewire Festival supporting Nicolas Jaar, and providing a live score at QEII Design Award for London Fashion Week 2020.
