Prague-based group exploring the world of turntable and record manipulation. Since 2003 they have been composing "songs" based on the sound of vinyl records prepared by stickers, speed manipulation and scratching (by knife!).

The band's sound is a thick tapestry of sound ON and IN the records - the role of clicks & hits is as important as the role of sound fragments recorded on the albums. With the roots in post-industrial music, Birds Build Nests Underground have developed into a band linking psychedelic music and minimalism. 

The loop and recycling in BBNU's music plays a role of a microscope or zoom that enables the exploration of "music under music", dicovering new details in notorious sounds that are fragmented and put into new contextual environment.
