Personnel: Rick Bales and Andy Douglas, keyboards; Ray Gantt, bass.
Discs: "Nightlight" and "Warp Date." The CDs are available at www.CDBaby.com and Towers Records online.
How it's unique: Since the group plays an improvisational ambient electronica style of music, the band members say they feel their music is quite unique for the Birmingham, Alabama area. The music ranges from soft ambient, New Age style music to hard driving sequenced electronica that comes close to techno without crossing that line. The band uses up to nine keyboards at a time.
Influences: Hawkwind, Vangelis, Tangerine Dream, Kitaro, Ozric Tentacles, Steve Roach, Nightwish, Pink Floyd, Wooten Brothers, Charlie Hunter and The Who.
