Biographie :

Nightbirds is a french duo founded in 1985 by twin brothers who are interested in new electronic music.
At the very beginning, the original idea was to release an album late in 1985 with the few instruments they had. So Came their first self-produced album "Géode".

After some years, Nightbirds presented their project live in 1993, at the "Electronic Waves" festival in Paris (France).
After this performance, the band studied electronic music instruments and mastering techniques.

The music of Nightbirds is like a picture of sounds full of ambiances, minimalism and electroacoustic events. The band could be identified by the creation of long pieces like a gallery where artists could meet each other. Their music in now known through self-produced releases and through some contributions like the "Dreamwatchers' Tales" series.

Now, Nightbirds go on their way creating electronic landscapes...

    @Monade Ach: Me souviens plu. Pas noté sur la K7. J'ai eu trop de truc à cette époque et comme je changé beaucoup de set... Je ne pensais pas un jour me remettre à fouiller dans le passé :)

    ça me fait penser à l'intro de la soundtrack de "the Keep" de Tangerine Dream :) Au générique du film dans l'arrivée des Allemande dans le village.
