"Before, you balanced the universe
on an apex of curved glass, the velvet black
a telescope-trapped stage
dizzied with motion and light—Aquarius
filling the Dippers’ mouths,
the way the wingbeats of Cygnus disturbed
Orion’s aim, Cassiopeia’s perfect coifs.
Now when you recall those constellations
it’s their bleeding you remember first,
how they elongated in the ship’s window,
stretched into strings of light
thin and fragile as latticework,
until all that was left were their purple ghosts
receding into your eyes. Then, faster than
light, you arrived, disembarked. Nothing
on this new planet seemed more alien
than its vast, unnamed sky."

After the two HDK tapes dedicated to "The Soviet Space Dog Project", we are very happy to present you another of Mr. Andy Bloyce's numerous musical identities, namely "The Ambient Fish Society" (T.A.F.S.).

What is it about? Andy himself explains it to us: "When I returned to releasing music after a break of several years, there was The Soviet Space Dog Project and I didn't want to disappoint people by giving them music that was less sequencer-driven, so I needed a second release route. As we have four fish tanks here at home, I decided upon The Ambient Fish Society. Watching those fish going about their business can be quite relaxing and the first few releases definitely had that "floating around with nothing to do" feeling about them - the titles reflected that".

So dive like fish into the aquarium of your imagination and enjoy listening to these four amazing musical moments, halfway between Berlin School Electronic Music and the soundtrack of a dystopian science fiction film.
