Bryan Tewell Hughes combines ethereal Electronica with organic and acoustic elements to produce lush, detailed, enigmatic pieces. As a composer, musician, and audio craftsman, Hughes’ vision is rich, attention-grabbing, and original; AeTopus albums are not mere collections of individual songs - they are flowing, thematic works of sonic art through which universal themes gently emerge with abstraction and sophistication.

Totem Totum takes the listener on an acoustic-electric journey through gentle pastoral scenes, primitive rituals, and moody planetscapes - A sonic exploration of humanity's inherent yearning for its own context. Goth, Berlin School, and film soundtrack roots lend color and texture to Bryan's spacious, high-fidelity style to reward both the casual listener and the headphone-wearer.

AeTopus Bellingham, Washington

I create electronic music that includes acoustic percussion, field and studio recordings, and vintage synthesis. My creative approach is steeped in the traditions of Berlin School electronic music, Abstract Expressionism, modern ambient and downtempo, and the cinematic soundtracks of the twentieth century. I create my music and visual art in my Bellingham, WA studio. Thank you for checking it out! ... more
