Nocturne is the first release from Birds of Prey. Produced and recorded in live studio sessions, the music is heavily influenced by dark, cinematic exploration of sound. Layered with distant and distorted rhythms, immersive textural structures evolve throughout the duration of each piece. These tracks are selected outtakes from our forthcoming album on Kathexis.
Birds of Prey is an ever-evolving process of chaos, immediacy and necessity. Like an organism emerging from the sea to walk on land for the first time, there is no grand plan, and no going back. The story of our friendship in many ways mirrors our method. We were brought together by a shared fascination with the sublime potential of electricity to generate something unknown, and a mutual trust that a path would reveal itself as we move forward through the dark. Originally conceived and composed live in Brooklyn, Birds of Prey is a collaboration of live electronics by Grant Aaron, Eric Holmes and Camille Altay.
