“Night Gestalt’s] restraint yields a sound that is at turns quiet and foreboding; one that marvels at the depth and breadth of space, both in the cosmos and in composition.” – THE FADER

A Journey Through the Cosmos After the End of the World
Feat. 8+ Hours of Dark, Minimalist, Experimental IDM
“Overdrive Control is a lullaby sort of. A lullaby in space. But still meant to put you to sleep, safe from harm, even though chaos is everywhere. In a way that was what I was aiming for with this album as a whole… Chaos is everywhere in this world and scientists are predicting catastrophes of all kinds the next 0-30 years, but not when or what will hit us. We need lullabies more than ever,” Cornéer explains.
As Night Gestalt, Cornéer manipulates simple arpeggios and his own vocals to create texture and patters resulting in starkly complex arrangements on the upcoming album ONE [Endless] out January 15 via Slow Future Vault. The 8+ hour album tells the story of a spaceship (“ONE”) controlled by a computer (“SHE”) carrying the last of humanity from earth destroyed.
The follow up to his debut LP ONE (released May 2015), ONE [Endless] furthers Night Gestalt’s conceptual journey into the endless void. All songs consist of an arpeggio (a broken chord) played by a simple bleep – and vocals. Nothing else. No beats. No added chords. The exception being the last song – which is even less. However, the sum of ONE [Endless] is bigger than the parts.
THIS IS THE STORY OF “OVERDRIVE CONROL”
A year after we had lost control of the ship we were still heading straight into nowhere. The whole staff of ship engineers had worked overtime for a year, but there was nothing they could do.
Chief engineer J Bao now stood at the podium, ready to deliver the message to the 7000 men and women – the remains of mankind – that had left earth to find a new home.
