Xybor & the Cosmonauts is the musical muse of Terry Atkinson, a self-absorbed, multi-instrumental musician, songwriter and multimedia "artiste". The majority of the music is written, played and engineered by me.

The music is infused with diverse musical influences — rock, jazz, fusion, blues, bluegrass and pop. The overall sound draws heavily on progressive and psychedelic rock, ala Beatles, Pink Floyd, CSNY, Bowie.

Give it a listen. It is time well wasted.

I just completed a new recording -- "I'm Not an Algorithm." You can listen here, and view the accompanying video. The video is also here, in HD. I quite like it, plus it has a surprise ending!


On an unrelated note, you probably know the dynamics of the music industry have changed. While distribution is cheap, compensation is abysmal. As an example, for each Spotify play, I get $0.0013. The math to earn even minimum wage is daunting. I love making music, and even now, regardless of the compensation, I do so because it is who I am.

I write, record, and produce about a song month. I am fully self-contained, with all the gear I need to develop both audio and video recordings, so my costs to record are not high. But still ...

All of my music is available for listening here, for free. I have set up a "jukebox" for easy access. When you listen to something you like, consider buying a download, conveniently linked by the button on the left. If you are on Spotify or another streaming service, give my music a couple plays. Enjoy it any way you can and share it with your friends. ANY support is welcome.
