about

keef baker founded his side project nimon to cope the high amount of intense feelings caused by the loss of his mother, resulting in the album 'drowning in good intentions', a compelling work of deep emotional ambiance. nimon's second release 'the king is dead' also became a very personal one, a musical dedication to keef's father who passed away in 2013. this album illustrates this outstanding artist's self-expression getting along with this tragic strike of fate. more than three hours of music were spontaneously made as a basis for the twelve final tracks which were mastered by the legendary electronic / ambient musician robert rich.

nimon's musical concept is based on the only usage of a digitally manipulated electric guitar to create epic cinematic soundscapes influenced by brian eno, fennesz and tim hecker. a mélange of blissful panoramic drones, distorted textures and deep, reverberated chordplay that will leave the listener in a state of heaviness and weightlessness at the same time. the ability of emotional translation into sound combined with the mastery of six strings generate a continuous flow of ideas that details a unique storyline for each pair of ears to decipher, transporting a different array of emotions that are as uplifting as they are tragic. a compelling inner mind's soundtrack with feelings of distress, melancholy and, once again, with hope.

"there's only the future left now..." (nimon)
