There are two artists represented here:
1) In autumn of 2001 two males, living almost precisely at the centre of England, decided upon the name Aurelie to denote their collaboration. The word itself is a common girl's name on the continent and was chosen purely for its phonetic beauty rather than any inherent meaning. Their first album, Desde Que Naci, was released on Swim Records in 2003. The album combined ambient electronics and minimalist instrumental pieces, receiving positive reviews from magazines including Wire and Uncut.
Aurelie reconvened in 2006 as loose-knit collective, developing new working methods during a period spent as artists-in-residence at Leicester’s Haymarket Theatre that resulted in a series of multi-media performances made in response to the city’s vanishing industrial architecture. Since then they have regularly performed improvised shows in arts centres and venues around the country. Their current lineup includes founder members Francis O Donnell Smith and David Dhonau along with Glenn Boulter, Euan Rodger and Ola Szmidt.
2) Aurélie is the collaborative name of singer-songwriter Aurélie Guinard and producer Nick Lewis.
