Nocturnal is an collaborative piece between composer Kalle Vainio and Alexander Salvesen. Salvesen paints and redecorates an old piano that will be played in various locations by Vainio. The themes and images are taken from the new album Nocturnal which was released 24.8.2017. The painting of the piano was done as an three-day performance outside Elmun Baari, Nosturi, in Helsinki Finland 21-23.8.2017. The three day performance ended with the first concert for a live audience of the album material composed by Vainio. The concert takes place as a part of Night of the Arts happenings in Helsinki, and features Salvesen analog live projections.
The collaboration continues as a project called Quadrivium where Salvesen works alongside Vainio doing analog visuals in an classic 1960’s psychedelic fashion.
