Album Notes
Electric Bird Noise
fragile hearts.....fragile minds
Electric Bird Noise started in 1997 as Brian McKenzie’s experiment with loops & effect
pedals. Electric Bird Noise has become more refined over ten years of live shows & three
albums (Unleashing the Inner Robot (1998), The Pace (2001), & fragile hearts…
fragile minds (2007)) & become guitar & drum machine driven music. The guitar work is
often multi-layered & incredibly dense, but not afraid to simultaneously go the minimal
route of single notes.
While it is music difficult to pigeonhole, the term “cinematic instrumental guitar music”
is one that McKenzie has embraced. The music is not exclusively post rock, darkwave,
shoegazer, or space rock; but involves elements of all four. Perhaps part of not being so
simply defined is the geographic isolation of the deep south from any experimental or art
rock scene; allowing the music to be more focused on personal expression than emulating
anyone else’s sound. That said, clear nods are made within the music to Kraftwerk, the
Cure, Depeche Mode, & Brian Eno.
Recorded at his own studio, McKenzie showcases different elements of his music on
fragile hearts...fragile minds. “Vestibule Transitoire” showcases a single guitar with loop
& reverb in a twenty-six minute long ambient piece built for late night car rides. “We
Share More Than My Father’s Last Name” is the first EBN song with vocals (sampled
from Michael Wood of Something About Vampires And Sluts) & probably as close to a
proper single as EBN will ever come. “Fall of The World Trade Center” on the other hand
is minimalist piano & electronics with no guitar at all.
Electric Bird Noise has played with bands like Attrition, Aarktica, Clang Quartet, Remora,
Plumerai, System of a Down, Fear Factory, & Bardo Pond giving crowds walls of light &
smoke while delivering a larger than life sound from one guitar.

Completely Mesmerizing
These birds are made to fly . . . if you haven’t witnessed the spectacle known as Electric Bird Noise, you are missing a moment to remember. Trying to describe an ELB performance could be compared to telling someone you just met details about the lurid dream you had the evening before. You awoke with a confidant smile on your face relishing the notion that you saw something completely mesmerizing. Listening to “Fragile Hearts . . . Fragile Minds” always takes me back to that precarious place. Electric Bird Noise’s recent addition to our fragile hearts and minds, the tracks “Invisible Birds” and “The Fury (Turbulent Mix)” are featured on Synchro Nine Factor’s 3rd release “re[mix]” also available through CDBaby . . !
