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) and 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 Hearn-Roberts-Strong-Watts (2019).
