The name « NUIT CLOSE » has been inspired by the work of Louis Calaferte, a deep and amazing writer. His universe is deep, thick and turned to the inside of the man as the atmosphere of a big forest could be, a dark and dwelling forest. Target of the deads, different levels of penetration, thinking bones, murder temple…
NUIT CLOSE was based in 1996 by Le Hibou, one year after Trident joins this musical hell and much later James… the members of the group separated by 1999.
“Nevertheless five albums were conceptualized and registered without ever being published”.
“ La Fontaine de Sang ”, the title of which is the one of a text of Baudelaire, on whom come to go to bed texts of Hölderlin, Goeth offering a ghostly universe, neo-classic and experimental musical landscapes.
“ Omne Genus Demoniorum ”, inspired by a Latin anonymous text of the 19th century. Industrial and experimental music.
“ L'Anatomie de l'Oeil ”, the title of which is the one of a text of Pierre de Marbeuf, on whom come to go to bed François Villon's texts and Le Hibou, offering medieval, neo-classic, experimental musical landscapes.
“ Le Mur des Ombres ”, text of Le Hibou, Industrial and experimental music.
“ L'Enfer Musical ”, is directly inspired by Jérome Bosch's univers, ghostly universe, Industrial and experimental music.
