Electric Bird Noise, the project of
South Carolina's guitarist Brian McKenzie,
Initially, when it was a collaboration with
Trey Mcmanus on synthesizer, the music was a created (if unfocused)
mix of ambient and post-rock, as documented on
Unleashing The Inner Robot (Artfag, 1999 - Silber, 2014).
Fragile Hearts Fragile Minds (No More Stars, 2007)
contains the 26-minute suite Vestibule Transitoire, reissued
with Le Vestibule on Le Vestibule (No More Stars, 2008).
That piece overlaps a delicate piano filigree a` la
Harold Budd and lysergic guitar wails,
and eventually the two merge in an evocative droning cosmic "om".
Further stylistic changes came with
the electronic Desert Jelly (Silber, 2013) and
the solo guitar album Kind of Black (Silber, 2014), that veered
towards ambient jazz.
Feel No Other (2014) was a collaboration with
vocalist Claudia Gregory.
The Moonflower is a compilation.
This prolific era also included the release of
the four-song EP Birth (2014),
the nine-song EP Follow the Star (2014) and
the nine-song EP The Spider...The Christ Child.....The Crow (2016).
His most ambitious compositions were
the 32-minute piece of the EP Nighttime Tides (2016)
the 21-minute piece of the EP Nam Wen Eht Fo Htrib (2017).
Having found his true calling in this personal version of guitar-based ambient jazz music, Electric Bird Noise continued that mission on
Nrob Elbarap (2018) and
