Underwater Peoples, but I'm not yet familiar with the first two. That said, the first single from The Garnet Toucan, "Aviary's Black Satin Stargate", has a distinctly tropical vibe while still seeming rooted in the age of computer. It's one of the most intriguing works I've heard this year for it's commingling of real and false. According to MCSS, "The intention in these works lies in finding a symbolic, exotic, animal to unleash a psychoactive environment expression that leads one to an elaborate meeting with the natural world. The Garnet Toucan completes the trilogy by uncovering the symbolic animal’s transfiguration into the outerzone of infinite space. The Parrot or Toucan is thought of as a mediator between human and nature..." In this notion the concepts of exotic and mechanical begin to make sense, as the song plays out and actually seems to balance the alternate realities.
