More Info

"The reissue of a long-deleted classic album by this legendary Belgian project. 'Soundtrack for the Antwerp Zoo Aquarium' is an unusual album, even in comparison with other Hybryds works. It was created especially for the 150th anniversary of the Antwerp Zoo. Music composed by Sandy and Hermann (of Ah-Cama Sotz) was woven in between the sounds of dolphins, killer whales and the noise of the underwater world. No further introduction is needed." [label info]


"... Hybryds, a trio from Antwerp, did a bunch of sound recordings at the Aquarium of the zoo in Antwerp of animals, but also of the surroundings and added a whole bunch of human voices, seashells, rainmaker, didgeridoo, percussion objects, saxophone, Yamaha DX7, sampler and cello, along with a whole bunch of effects. No tribal, ethnic, techno or industrial influences here, just ambient music, recorded at a time when ethnic instruments were in play - think Steve Roach in the mid nineties, or John C. Lilly's album on Silent which made use of dolphin sounds in a similar way. The whole album has this great mid nineties ambient feel to it; music that was connected to the world of ambient house, but here it never gets even remotely close to dance music. I do remember this back then, and thinking it was a good CD and these days I think its a very good album, and, as said, an excellent one to be re-issued. For anybody who loves this classic period of ambient music, and perhaps anything that came after that." [FdW/Vital Weekly]
