Callisto played their first Hampshire Jam Festival on October 31st 2009. This download album is a record of that performance. David Wright was joined by Neil 'Geigertek' Fellowes (who replaces Dave Massey for live performances - DM doesn't do 'live'). Despite David Wright injuring knee ligaments during the set up, the performance went down a storm with the audience. The music comprises extended versions of two tracks from the forthcoming Callisto studio album "NYX" scheduled for February 2010 release, and the extended live performance being quite different to the original is an excellent companion to the studio album. Some post production work and mixing has been done to the recording, which has been edited from the original room and house recordings and the rehearsal performances. The music is very much in the style of Tangerine Dream and Klaus Schulze, so lots of sequencing, and with a little Vangelis thrown in for good measure. But it is very much imbued with the style that has become Callisto - rhythmic and melodic electronic music in the old school style, but done for the 21st century.
