MUSIC FOR LIGHT KILLER
Everybody believes to know what light is - but almost nobody manages to say what it is.
We know there is nothing faster. We know it because only through light we can see the whole universe around us. However nobody knows how it is made, of what it is formed, what's its taste, its colour, its sent. Therefore since childhood – for example if we want to describe a ray of light – we trace a gesture or we emit a sound. A spurious sound which is noise and note at the same time. This is the starting point for Light Killer's music composition: combining opposites to reach sounds that can become light on that ephemeral line between music and chaos which distinguishes every luminous experience.

Niton is the documentation of a time and sound flow, which sees three different analogic sounds converging together: classical strings, pre-digital keyboards and devices. The contrasting conceptions of the sound generation combine into a flow of changing features: experimentation, ambience, noise, progressive and electro are only some of the genres which emerge from the course of Niton.
