Nyx Nott

Aux Pieds de la Nuit


“I’d work on it when everyone else at home was in bed,” says Aidan Moffat of his latest musical project as Nyx Nótt. “I don’t sleep very well and I’m very much a nighthawk, so the music I made was naturally nocturnal.”

The essence of night and Moffat’s moonlit tinkerings became such a prominent role in the creative process that his new alias had to reflect this too. “I originally planned to release the album anonymously and tried to think of a convincing, exotic name that suited the nocturnal themes of the album. Nyx and Nótt are two mythical goddesses of night, Nyx from the Greek and Nótt from old Norse.” The album title translates as 'At the Feet of Night', so this is an album not simply of, or from, the night, but an ode to it – a sonic worshipping of the night’s pull and allure. Crepuscular music.
