Kristian Tangvik, after all these years of intense delivery, finally lays down his debut album ‘nullpluss’! The listener is brought on an intimate journey through nostalgia, glitch, optimistic melancholy, beauty and complexity. Produced over a period of two years (2016-2018), the album consist of original compositions and treated improvisations that range from naive casio pop, experimental analogue and digital collages, lo-fi electro, indie jazz and more. Inspired by the DIY movement and a wide range of musical and personal influences, ‘nullpluss’ is a personal statement, rich in artefacts, emotions and imagination. All sounds, recording and mixing was done by Kristian himself.
