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.
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. 2014 he graduated the Audio Engineer Diploma at the "School of Audio Engineering", Berlin.
These days he is playing all over the world.
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 142 - 146 bpm, he is producing a rather punchy rolling beat!
Just "Tribal Trance" …
But Nocti Luca is also producing downbeat – tracks following the same stylistic path.

2012 the EP "Energy of Rotation" containing the three tracks "Traveling to Uaxactun", "Mind Destination" and "Golden Age Arrival" was released on Purple Hexagon Records .
“Noctilus” is a "Forest Trance" side project around 150 bpm with wich he is creating a more dark and psychedelic style, focusing on nature- and animal sound design.
In 2013 Noctilus released a track on the Amaya Productions compilation "The Legend of Amaya", was winner of the Parvati Records Remix Contest an released a track as part of the Purple Hexagon Records compilation "Memetic Ideosphere".
