Nimbus Dei is a project started in 2008 by Tomislav Babić to perform his electroacoustic and experimental works. He was soon joined by violinist Tena Novak and Mario Kovac on theremin. This outfit was active during 2009/2010 season. whilst core melodic and harmonic material were provided by the composer, it was extended by ad lib detours made by all musicians. After a four year hiatus, the project has restarted some concert activity. Nowadays, the roster of involved musicians varies with almost every performance. Concerts are completely improvised, serving as scores to various art, experimental and silent film works.
Nimbus Dei plays dark, psyhedelic ambient with roots in 70s electronic and early 20ct impressionism & expresionism, combining various electronic and solo string instruments with visuals. Their music was used in theatre and contemporary dance plays, motion pictures, experimental films and documentaries.
