AURAL FLOAT was formed in 1993 as an "electronic ambient project" with lots of electro acoustic and creative interplay.
Aural Float members are: Alex Azary, Gabriel Le Mar and Pascal FEOS, who share a passion for music, computer graphics, science fiction and art in general. Since many years their names stands for cutting-edge and ambitious sound design.
The colab is floating with "deep sounds". Aural Float´s music style can be best described as "modern electronic listening music" ranging from ambient to space and experimental soundscapes.
They compiled the soundtracks for the german cult TV-series "Space Night", that has been broadcasted every night at tv-station BR, played at many "chill out events", and they released three electronic and atmospheric albums, Introspectives, Freefoat and Beautiful Someday.
lets go chill at mystery spots
Five years after the last album Freefloat and 10 years after the first album Introspectives, Aural Float strikes new paths with their album "Beautiful Someday", particularly with the increased use of vocals by "Kim Sanders", "Nada Nadia Vagioka" and "Catenia Quentin". Aural Float, in an almost playful easiness, present the way from the experimental search of the beginning to a clearly structured high-end version of sensual cutting-edge Pop Music, finding emotions in melodies. Nevertheless, the system always stays open enough to allow a winking cross reference to their impressionistic "Ambient Trance".
Exclusively on itunes you can get the special instrumental versions album of Beautiful Someday.

too deep to sleep
In 1996, "Aural Float" took over the creative direction of the german cult tv-series SPACE NIGHT, broadcasted on "station BR" and associated CD/DVD compilations series as well. As a proto type of a holistic TV-concept with spectacular images and visionary soundspheres, it received public attention and interest for innovation. Still today you can watch Space Night at "BR alpha TV station".
The concept of this groundbreaking project was to combine original NASA/ESA film- and video- and documentary footage from outer space with music made on earth. Until today, "Space Night" is a synonym for chillout and with it`s futuristic visuals soon reached "cult status" among the young night watchers.
Four years later Elektrolux pitched an "ambient television" idea to german tv-broadcaster HR, that was produced as a program called FLOWMOTION (from 2000-2006), a music series of DJ/VJ mixes, another outstanding platform for avantegarde video artists and "chillout producers" that was created by the Aural Float masterminds. They received lots of good feedback for bringing the realms of video and sound closer together to put DJ and VJ mixes on "mainstream television".

Remain in your seat...
schwarz... das Weltall ist schwarz
Die Sterne liegen zu meinen Füssen
Sie sind unter mir
Auf der Erde sind Sterne nie unter einem...
Hier sind sie hinter und vor mir
Wohin ich mich auch drehe...
vielleicht bin ich mittendrin
Das ist Protonen-und Elektronenregen,
der ist so schön
Ich setze mir den Kopfhörer über
dann ist "elektronische Musik" in meinem Ohr
I´m absolutely upside down
Remain in your seat
... ich weiss gar nicht, wo oben und unten ist
Zwei G... im Orbit
(words by space poet Reinhard Furrer)
Introspectives echoes incoming waves into pitch and sound and chillz comes into the sense, whose heart is beating for deep and atmospheric chill sounds.
here`s some beautiful musical experience
change and make it more beautiful...with silence.
