Night Gestalt Premieres 'Holy Patterns' with EarMilk and Announces New Album 'New Glaser'

NIGHT GESTALT--the moniker for Swedish experimentalist Olof Cornéer who's also half of the internationally acclaimed electronic duo Dada Life--today (8/17) joined forces with EARMILK to premiere new track, "Holy Patterns." A collaboration with fellow Swedish producer TM404, the alluring track utilizes fluttering arpeggios and atmospheric soundscapes to present a ballad that is as cinematic as it is minimal.

NIGHT GESTALT has also announced his forthcoming sophomore album, NEW GLASER (exact release date TBA), whose track listing (below) was unveiled today. The new album will further explore Olof's gutsy foray into experimental music that will be marked by a continuum of crisp, quality production and groundbreaking sound design that have proved to be the cornerstone of Olof's respected reputation. The album will have a companion book about post-apocalyptic earth where a new society, "New Glaser," is created.

NIGHT GESTALT released his debut album ONE in June 2015. ONE was met with critical praise in the blogosphere, with Ben Roazen of The FADER declaring it "...an 8-hour journey that's all about arpeggios, outer space, and the Apocalypse" (November 18, 2015). The forward-thinking album also spawned "The Death of SHE," a hypnotic single that Andrew Spada from Dancing Astronaut said is "...drenched in buzzing electronica instead of bubbly champagne" (May 8, 2015). Further admiration came from THUMP's David Garber, who wrote that NIGHT GESTALT "...channels his experimental influences like Aphex Twin and Black Dog, layering spacey chords among sporadic synth-led arpeggios, additionally choosing to use his own emotive vocals to create an experience leagues away from everything you known from his work as part of Dada Life" (May 7, 2015).

Inspired in part by his love of 90's IDM like Aphex Twin, punk music a-la Velvet Underground, and contemporary classical composers such as Arvo Pärt, John Cage, David Lang, Morton Feldman and Steve Reich, NIGHT GESTALT's minimalist musical approach combined with maximalist timestamps is subtly shifting and elegant. By manipulating simple arpeggios, the resulting pattern of notes creates delicate melodies, harmonies, rhythm and structure. It's stark and it's beautiful, like the night sky.
