10 000 Hz Legend is the second studio album by French music duo Air, released in France on 28 May 2001 by Virgin Records and in the United States on 29 May 2001 by Astralwerks. On this album, tracks are longer and more electronic-oriented than on their previous records. These experimentations find the duo expanding their capacities and working with other artists including Beck and suGar Yoshinaga of Buffalo Daughter.
The album artwork was produced by Ito Morabito and features Monument Valley on its cover image.
10 000 Hz Legend received generally good reviews from the majority of critics. Most reviewers focused on the group's departure from the sound of 1998's Moon Safari. Q listed 10 000 Hz Legend as one of the best 50 albums of 2001.
