It’s a great pleasure for us to introduce an Italian cosmic courier named ROBERT KALYOS. Robert lives in Verona, northern Italy, but his true home is deep space: certainly the intergalactic space that hides the mysteries of life and death, but also the infinite and equally mysterious space of human interiority (Ballard's “Inner space”).
Tangerine Dream wrote in the liner notes of their album "Alpha Centaury" (1971): "Dedicated to all people who feel obliged to space". We are sure that Robert feels himself among the people Edgar Froese was referring to.

"At the borders of Orion" is a collection of five tracks inspired by the masters of electronic music of the past such as Jean-Michel Jarre, Vangelis, Giorgio Moroder and, of course, Tangerine Dream.

Robert's music, with its strong synthesizers and nocturnal atmospheres, transports us to the dystopian visions of the great dark sci-fi writers of the past: Philip K. Dick, Robert Silverberg, John Shirley, Bruce Sterling; the title of this cassette (and of the track) is a tribute to “Blade Runner” and to the famous monologue of the replicant Roy Batty: "I've seen things you people wouldn't believe. Attack ships on fire off the shoulder of Orion. I watched C-beams glitter in the dark near the Tannhäuser Gate. All those moments will be lost in time, like tears... in... rain. Time to die".
