Featuring extended versions – each more than an hour in length – of each song on the debut LP ONE (released May 2015), ONE [Endless] tells the story of a spaceship (“ONE”) controlled by a computer (“SHE”) carrying the last of humanity from earth destroyed over the course of 8-hours worth of audio.
Further videos will be revealed.
In addition to the video series Night Gestalt partnered with legendary Stockholm graffiti artist Ziggy to create a custom painting using 100 vinyl album covers of the debut album ONE. The limited edition albums are each a 100th part of the whole painting.

“I’ve been following Ziggy’s work for years and when I recorded this album I thought of him immediately. We realized we really have the same ideas about art and what music should be about – and he came up with the idea of doing one big artwork where each vinyl cover is a 100th part of the whole piece. When he started working I was just watching in awe. When I later flipped through the covers I realized they’re really unique. No cover looks like the other – still they’re all part of the same piece.” – Night Gestalt
Night Gestalt is the IDM alter ego of Swedish experimentalist Olof Cornéer (of Dada Life). As Night Gestalt, Cornéer manipulates simple arpeggios and his own vocals to create texture and patters resulting in starkly complex arrangements as he explores an apocalyptic narrative of humanity, technology, and the cosmos.
