Nocturnes contains 51 lyrical texts written by Erwin Uhrmann and 54 drawings of Moussa Kone. The artbook describes in its composition a turbulent, dangerous course of the night: roadtrips, twilight hours, nightmare-episodes, clear and bright moments, excursions in remote areas, far into the solar system, nebulously described secrets, violence, serenades, anxiety, murders, street ballads, ecstatic moments, kinky poems. Erwin Uhrmann and Moussa Kone have been collaborating in various art projects. They focus on the relationship between art and text. They cofounded the artist association "Kunstwerft" in Vienna, ran an artist-run-space and the "Art Hatch" as well as its "Collection of Stolen Art". In their opera libretto "Missing: Discourse" they reflected in drawings and texts about the art scene. Both initiated the "Art Critics Award", where artists select Austria's best critics.
