Q: How is AeTopus pronounced?
A: ay toe puhss
Q: What does AeTopus mean?
A: AeTopus is a contrived, compound word that suggests Time (Ae) and Place (Topus), although linguistic or historical accuracy is not intended nor claimed.
Q: Are all those instruments played by one person?
A: The music is actually a mosaic of many different sound sources. Some sounds and instruments are arranged through hardware and software synthesizers and samplers, and others are performed and recorded by my collaborators and I. All are carefully edited, tweaked, and mixed to produce the final tracks.
Q: Does AeTopus play live shows?
A: Yes, as soon as it is safe for groups to gather again. This website will contain information on locations and dates when the time comes.
Q: When will the next AeTopus album be released?
A: New material is being created right now, and early 2022 is the general release target for the next full-length CD. Please feel free to visit the AeTopus Facebook feed for frequent news and updates.
Q: How can I order physical CDs?
A: CDs can be ordered through Bandcamp. You might find new and used items on other online venues such as Amazon and eBay, but using Bandcamp takes out the middleman and offers a more direct fan-to-artist experience.
Q: If I order a CD through Bandcamp, can I have it signed?
A: Yes - All you need to do is ask! I manage all merch on the AeTopus page, so most special requests can be honored.
