OUC006 : Prope Nihil / Sea of Tranquillity

Prope Nihil is a London based band fronted by Lucio D Cavallari (read more herewho's an Italian artist that combines a wide range of disciplines including painting, video, live performance and interaction design. 

He has exhibited widely, in the UK, Germany, Italy, Japan, the US and further afield. The range of work he’s carried out over the years includes videos and scenography for fashion, music and interactive installations. Has exhibited regularly over the last few years, as well as helping to produce exhibitions of interactive works.

He currently lives and works in London, UK.

Their music vogues between contemporary classical and jazz and 'Sea of Tranquillity' is a contemporary mix of electronics and double bass inspired by Mare Tranquillitatis (Latin for Sea of Tranquillity), a lunar mare that sits within the Tranquillitatis basin on the Moon, once thought to be an ocean. The basin has irregular margins and lacks a defined multiple-ringed structure, likely formed as a result of a very large impact in the Moon’s early history more than 3.9 billion years ago.
In February 1965, the Ranger 8 spacecraft was deliberately crashed into the Mare Tranquillitatis, after successfully transmitting 7,137 close-range photographs of the Moon in the final 23 minutes of its mission.

The music depict that place sometime sensibly, sometime with power...
It is the first track of a forthcoming album.
