Nicolas Godin

Half of the duo Air, Nicolas Godin was born in Paris in 1969 and grew up in Versailles, where he tried his hand at music with the group Orange, which he formed with Jean-Benoît Dunckel in the late 1980s. His debut as a composer, encouraged by the success of the track "Modulor", led him to abandon his architecture studies to devote his time to music. He reunited with his former accomplice to form Air, who became one of the ambassadors of the "French Touch" with their album Moon Safari (1998). In parallel with Air's successes, Nicolas Godin has put his talents as composer, arranger and remixer to work for Françoise Hardy, Depeche Mode, Château Flight, Beck, Charlotte Gainsbourg and La Grande Sophie, before presenting his first personal album, Contrepoint, in 2015, on which the shadow of the master Johann Sebastian Bach hangs.
