Air floating in the Literary Circles

By liz

In one of the first relationships of it's type, Air has collaborated with Italian author Alessandro Baricco with his new novel "City". Baricco approached the French duo (Nicolas Godin and Jean-Benoit Dunckel) last summer to play live whilst he read exerpts from his book at Teatre Valle in Rome. The collaborative effort, City Reading (Tre Storie Western) will be released in the states on March 25. It contains over an hour of instrumentals by Air that have been remixed by Nigel Godrich and combined with readings of Baricco's novel. Also in the works is the band's followup to 10,000 Hz Legend, which they are hoping to release before the end of the year.
