About The Band
Following his formative musical years with Oscar winning composer and keyboards supremo, Vangelis, Chris Newman aka Janus went on to carve his own unique style of electronic music by way of sound,light & laser shows, literally immersing the audiences in his musical concepts. In the early 1980's he went on to pioneer the first ever series of conceptual background music for the role-playing games market (Dungeons & Dragons), producing 6 albums under the SoundScapes music label.
In the late 1990's and after some five years in production, he unleashed another ground-breaking milestone in the shape of the UFO trilogy CDs "Roswell","S.E.T.I." and "Flying Saucers".
In a collaboration with BUFORA (the British UFO Research Association), Janus appeared as guest speaker & presenter at 2002's opening lectures in London. In addition to discussing the background research and musical creation of his UFO trilogy works, Janus premiered part of a specially produced film, created specifically to be projected as a giant visual backdrop to a series of UK based "Roswell & Beyond" concerts.
In an interview in "Quest For Knowledge" magazine, Janus was asked what the driving force behind his music was, he said: "You firstly have to ask,why do people listen to music?..It is because we want to deliberately alter the way we feel. To feel happy, reflective, spiritual, empowered, whatever. I believe music is the greatest key we have to change things, on a personal and on a much wider scale. For my part, by combining the musical and visual technology I am lucky to have at my disposal today, and be able to create environments for people, as well as myself, to take their own voyages of discovery,is for me the greatest reward there is".
