The French electronic duo of Nicolas Godin and Jean-Benoît Dunckel is better known as Air. With a sensual, atmospheric sound inspired by Burt Bacharach and Brian Wilson as well as disco, new wave, and obscure Italian film soundtracks, Air may have been outliers in the late ’90s electronica boom, but they became one of the most influential electronic acts of the 2000s and beyond. Air is celebrated for their atmospheric, melodic soundscapes that intersperse experimental textures with rock and pop themes. The duo returned in 2016 to with a career-spanning retrospective titled Twentyears. On the heels of that release, expect a nostalgic set that revisits some of the group’s greatest hits.
- Air released their debut album, Moon Safari, on Virgin Records in 1998
- The duo composed the soundtrack to the Sofia Coppola film The Virgin Suicides.
- In 2016, Air released a career-spanning compilation album titled Twentyears.
This concert will run approximately 90 minutes with no intermission.
