On Galactic Travels™, the Special Focus for March is AeTopus, the electronic music project of Bryan Tewell Hughes. His passion for science fiction and fantasy films and their soundtracks helped to set the tone for his musical pursuits, especially when he revisited his more contemplative musical roots and embarked on AeTopus.
AeTopus is recognized for a unique crossover sound. It is too adventurous to be called "New Age" or "World," yet too dynamic to be considered pure Ambient or Chillout. Bryan manages to keep his compositions active and instrumentally diverse while maintaining an insightful, mood-generating environment. Special attention to thematic progression makes AeTopus albums more than song collections. They are subtle, flowing works of sonic art.
