Welcome to the Web site for ambient electronic group Callisto and for the men behind it - David Wright and Dave Massey.
Here you'll find a wealth of information on Callisto and the two Davids. Both musicians are also prolific solo recording artists in their own right, as well as members of the highly regarded ambient electronic band Code Indigo.
Combining the respective trademark skills that have graced a collective 30 albums, the two Davids merge striking melodies with strident rhythms and sequences in the best tradition of Vangelis and Tangerine Dream, to produce fresh and original electronic music.
The album `Signal to the Stars' was released in September 2004 and it has already been hailed by the music press as "One of the best instrumental albums of 2004."

David Wright has confirmed that a second Callisto album will definitely follow early in 2006. He and Dave Massey hope to start recording later this year (2005).
“Some artists reach a creative peak and thereafter never replicate past glories. Not David Wright. His music just seems to get better all the time. Having achieved a new zenith with Continuum, his Callisto project with Dave Massey transcends even the beautiful dark atmospherics of his Code Indigo band.
The overall sound reminded me why traditional synthesizer sequencing makes for the most exhilarating music on the planet but, better still here, there are strong, mesmeric melodies; and Dave Massey’s evident understanding of rhythms in electronic music makes Signal to the Stars an even more pulsating ride.
It’s my fervent wish that every Tangerine Dream fan gets to hear this. David Wright and AD Music deserve that”.
