Biography

Best known for his work with the pioneering electronic duo Air, composer/multi-instrumentalist Nicolas Godin was born in Paris, France on Christmas Day in 1969. While studying architecture at the École Nationale Supérieure d'Architecture de Versailles, he met mathematics student and future bandmate Jean-Benoît Dunckel. Prior to forming Air, they played in the alternative band Orange along with house music producer-to-be Étienne de Crécy. After Orange disbanded, Dunckel and Godin continued to make music together, ultimately becoming Air by 1995. The duo's unique mix of symphonic pop, film music, vintage electronic music, and new wave spawned 1998's instant-classic full-length debut, Moon Safari, as well as noteworthy albums like 2001's experimental 10,000 Hz Legend and 2004's lush Talkie Walkie. Godin and Dunckel also put their own mark on film music with soundtracks to The Virgin Suicides and Le Voyage Dans la Lune. After releasing the latter album in 2012, the duo went on hiatus. While Dunckel engaged in several collaborations, Godin concentrated on an album inspired by pianist Glenn Gould's interpretations of Johann Sebastian Bach's keyboard music. Contrepoint, which also included jazz, tropicalia, exotica, and left-field pop among its wide swath of influences, first arrived in September 2015 and was given a wider release the following year. ~ Heather Phares
