Around two years have been required to find onto the web a team of 8 guitar players which
accepted, starting with the unity of two words, Bird & Sinfonie, to work together onto an
international & collective project dedicated to the guitar.


Eight guitar players, eight movements. One guitar player = one movement. We borrow to classical
sinfonie idea two elements:

1) The diversity of timbres

2) The diversity of movements

Modern work, the diversity of timbres is produced with the variety of styles & tones expanded
through the eight movements. At first blush, this album's peculiarity consists of propose a plurality
of guitar's approachs. But this multiplicity is dutiful under a poetic libretto.


Birds Believes is a symbolic story about winged creatures, about their birth, their flight, their fight
for life, & their singing.

Movement 1, "Breathes of Dawn" : Light of Dawn, incertain, elusive, not from night, not
from day. Multiplicity of breathes. An Awakening, between shadows & first sunbeams, across
the foliage still confused.

Movement 2, "Dream of a Birdsong" : Day's hatching, first singing flight on the visible branch.

Movement 3, "Birds in Flight" : Spreading one's wings, & discovery of the taking wing across
the sky.

Movement 4, "Murder in Full Flight" : Irruption of the death, pain, & the fall.

Movement 5, "The Feast of the Buzzards" : Interiorization of the idea of Death, in front of
corpse, under the Day, in front of the terrible crossing between Sky & Earth.

Movement 6, "The Raven's Head" : Willpower of fight for flight, near the sepulchres, despite
of the Sky & Earth's tear which don't deliver their secret, despite of the Night.

Movement 7, "Blue Colt": The diurnal & nocturnal plenitude of flying, aware about his boundaries,
between Sky & Earth, travelling across the world.

Movement 8, "Winter Migration" : The migration seasonal cycle is accomplished. The ultimate
taking wing hangs from a Dusk which is not the alternation of nights & days, but the light of nightfall,
which is the union of Sky & Earth inside Mystery.
