about

Three pieces make up the album, each one named after an exo-planetary ocean somewhere in Andy's universe - but each originally inspired by real places altogether closer to home. Two of the oceans are serene and unspoiled, but at threat from the civilisation that dominates the third.

This album marks the actual recorded debut of Andy and Matt Stevens who appears on the first track. The two have worked live on many occasions before, but this is the first time they have appeared together on a CD. Matt plays some seriously “out there guitar”!!

An incredible mixture of musical styles fuse together on this remarkable album which although rooted in atmospheric electronica can hardly be called "ambient". Infuences of Tangerine Dream, Brian Eno, John Hassell, Bo Hansson, Ash Ra, Stomu Yamashta wind themselves around Miles-like jazz motifs, delicate melodies, 20th century classical music from Strawinsky to Ligeti, Stockhausen , modern techno in the realms of Floating Points, Funk and even a snatch of Disco.....

The album features Andy's new synthesiser - the Arturia Matrixbrute - he acquired the first unit to arrive in the UK in early 2017. Possibly the most powerful production synthesiser of the current era, the album really lets its possibilities shine. But more traditional instruments such as the omnipresent Hammond, Acoustic Pianos & Guitars, Rhodes electric pianos, Mellotrons and Electric Guitar play a massive part along with Andy's groundbreaking drumming technique.

"Exo - Oceans" is an instrumental musical feast of the type and scale not really seen since the days of Tubular Bells and Phaedra. An album for late night contemplation, for real world substitution using noise cancellation phones, a hi fi lover's dream and a smorgasbord for the lover of music for its own sake.
