From the dark and perpetually differentiated chaos, from the stimulation of hypnotic sounds, the greedy nature of man transforms the sensations of the night into ecstatic experiences.
Liber Null VIII is an esoteric celebration of greed, the desire to accumulate for the sake of it. Performance, art and music stimulate the senses to the point of overload and shift your perception of reality.
Music is the salvation and the damnation; the musky scent of the rhythms’ effect stirs up a collective, hedonistic stupor, elevating you to a higher state of existence.
Enter Liber Null.

Frank & David
Frank & David come from another reality.
The human duo saw the grim desolating future that is waiting for us. They saw "The Waste Land", an hopeless place coming up directly as a result of the human kind's actual action on Earth. They know already that humans are not designed to rule over the existence, neither on this planet nor on any other. What humans learned through sciences changed and evolved nearly all of the life's aspects, but following a fateful direction for the existence itself. The only focus was put on the "growth" of the single's power rather than embrace a collective aware common direction. Frank & David already know that the atavistic hunger of mankind has no mercy, not even for the existence itself. The consequences of the generated pain over thousands years needs to find a balance according to the universal laws ruling the organized reality that we know, different from the primitive chaos. Trying to denounce this warped reality through the Monolith, Frank and David want to shape an icon which comes as the symbol of the transition phase that we are living between new orders. The Monolith wants to tell stories of our times through soulful music; often related to techno-ambient-industrial sounds the duo doesn't stick to genres, but try provide a message through a succession of emotional-related sounds while waiting for the cancelation.
The next pending reality will probably not feature the human race in order to guarantee the overall existence and balance of the universe.

was born and lives as an artist in Berlin. Originally coming from the fine arts media drawing and print-making, F.K. has developed his artistic work in short-movies, organizing and realizing several art-events, combining the diversity of medias and personalities of his colleges. Meanwhile he uses the performances art, as a way to combine this experiences to transcend personal, physical and spiritual limits, most often in exchange and collaboration with other artists.
The performance develops in a process of approaching the moment of action. It can not be rehearsed and recalled like a theater-piece.
It depends on the situation; space, time and conditions. The tension in the fore field in between imagination and preparation remains until the moment of release in the transcendental act of performing and creates its own reality and consciousness.
For Liber Null VIII F.K. works together with the noise-artist Mathieu Sylvestre, whose sounds merge with the performance.
The purpose is not only to bring atmospheric background but also lead to a strain climax between noise and action. The piece for this event is a full noise piece and performance art melted in one.
