In Nils Berg Cinemascope, the trio formed seven years ago together with drummer Christopher Cantillo and bassist Josef Kallerdahl, that boundlessness is taken to its extreme. Through video clips of singers and musicians from all corners of the world, the band creates new music as well as new venues, where Sweden, through a projector placed on stage, meets Bhutan,Texas, Osaka or India. A concert experience beyond the ordinary, where the border between digital and acoustic technique is being erased: all of it is performed live with the video guests projected behind the trio.

The band has released three full length albums, the debut record Popmotion (2011), Vocals (2013) and Searching For Amazing Talent From Punjab (2016). Vocals is a film, which, after being screened in Swedish theatres, has found a digital screen at www.nilsbergcinemascope.com/vocals.

Nils Berg Cinemascope has toured in Japan, Belgium, USA, Canada, Norway and many other countries.

DOWNBEAT "Berg transcends conceptual cleverness; the tunes and the performances would be fantastic even without the video cameos." 
DN "Jazz meets dance meets electronica meets chanson. Almost painfully creative!" 
SVD "...a pioneer, perhaps the best that happened in Swedish jazz the last years." 
ROLLING STONE MAGAZINE "A mere gimmick? Oh no! The music of this Swedish Fellini is both mysterious and irresistible"
