In AIR’s discography, Music for Museum is a bit of an enigma. Few are aware of its actual existence. As an official release, it only exists as 1000 limited copies worldwide, carefully crafted by The Vinyl Factory in London and little, if no promotion was made at the time.
The nine tracks that compose Music for Museum are the first soundtrack for a museum and AIR’s most ambient work to date. “We’ve tried to approach two types of music, one that draws on matter and another on emotions” said bandmember Nicolas Godin. The record itself is akin to an exhibition catalogue rather than an album.
We were delighted to be able to host two sessions in the beautiful Australian Museum to hear the album in it’s natural habitat.
