Noční Optika (Night Vision) is made up of musicians whose starting point is jazz and classical music. The originality of this band is testified to by their special sound. ‘The result is a kind of outskirts or suburbs of jazz mainstream, which flashes with the feverish pulse of the metropolis and blows with breezes over the darkening surfaces of forest ponds. The meditations of the neurotic and the frenzied flight of the stoic blend together here in a herbarium of forgotten creatures’. You can find out for yourself by listening to their three albums, Herbarium, Strojek z půdy (Machine from the Attic), and Astigma - all on the Arta label.
