The Night Light Collective (founded as the Shh...Art Ensemble) is a collective of performers and composers who focus their energy on writing and playing new music. The group freely experiments with genre, instrumentation and performance spaces, with a view to creating a new platform for art and noise music, that is bound to stretch audience members' ears.
Founded as a string quartet in 2014 by Matthjis Van Dijk, Sarah Evans, Galina Juritz and Nicola du Toit, the collective is now a flexible configuration of players including strings, vocals, electronics and a range of Southern African instruments. The ensemble is actively pushing musical boundaries and exploring new collaborations with artists in interdisciplinary fields. The Night Light Collective is mostly based in Cape Town, South Africa.
