Nocti Luca & Noctilus are projects formed by Georg Bauer who is living in Berlin, Germany.
Born in an artist family, he early came into contact with music, attended a music high school, where he was teached in playing piano, music theory and music history. Beside he was playing bass guitar in several bands.
2001 he started to visit Psy Trance Events…
So, after studying music (bass guitar-jazz / doublebass-classic) in Rostock, northern Germany, he started to produce electronic dance music, specially kinds of Psy Trance and Downbeat in 2005.
2008 he began organizing Psy Trance Events in Berlin (Sternenwald – series) and performing LiveSets at Parties and Festivals in and around Berlin and northern germany. Now playing all over Europe…
Having grown up in nature and always have been fascinated by the music and lifestyle of the indigenous peoples, he is inspired by these things and created a style with which he focused on percussion, tribal drums, world music, ethnic and natural sounds and animal noises, mixed up with mystic mood…
Moving between 140 – 152 bpm, he is producing a rather punchy rolling beat!
