Berlin! 29.02.20 NIL Album Release & Performative Exhibition

Art, Music, Drinks.. All you need for a great day at Salon am Moritzplatz

Art exhibition, live perfomance and drinks … NIL album release is an event you do not want to miss! It’s never happened before: An event where the lines between music, art exhibition, visual orgy and thriving ambition disappear completely. We don’t have to wait for nightfall but instead use the day for sound art, visual storytelling and pumping beats until we wonder where the hours have gone. Our journey will take place in an empty bank building at Moritzplatz. A place that the free spirits of the hour have reclaimed to give new space to diversity.

The occasion for this meeting is the album release of the electro-pop duo NIL from Berlin. Their first vinyl entitled’ MODUS’ tells the story of a tormented knight who loses his home and gives in to countless orgies to numb his pain. Until eventually, he has to admit to himself that his rampant excesses are only the restless search for true love.

NIL´s songs range from heartbreak hotel, floating corpses, sinking ships and narrating the death of a rock. Their sound is an eclectic fusion of pop, electro and a pinch of Berlin Techno. NIL´s debut album ´Modus` is a soundtrack to a film that’s never been made. Mixing music, storytelling and striking visuals, ´Modus` tells the story of a young knight struggles navigating through a fantasy world fighting temptations, to focus on a new admiration behind all his orgies. NIL wants to inspire and be inspired. Crafting a sound that is unheard but familiar in a disturbing way.

The Swedish illustrator Johannes Helgelin of the art studio Hannes&Johannes has immersed this story in unseen visual worlds. Alongside his images and animation, there is a  Live performance of the music project.
