Highly infused with Progressive Rock (Yes, Rush, Kansas, etc) and early electronic (Kitaro, Tomita, Rick Wakeman, Vangelis, Tangerine Dream, etc) all blended in with more “contemporary” electronic sounds (Massive attack, Enigma, Orbital, the Orb, BT, etc) into what Wintermute calls: “Concept Electronica” and “Art Trance”.
