In the early 1990s, a resurgence of pure electronic music occurred, centered around the then-burgeoning rave and techno scenes of the world. Ambient music, in particular, experienced a renaissance of style and popularity, making a previously marginal, though useful and relevant, musical form suddenly available in many mainstream record shops.
During this heady time, and separate from the disposable trends of the day's sunny and often forgettable ambient-techno, Michael/Michel Fibe quietly released three, apparently private-pressed, CDs on his Carbon Base label, beginning in 1994: Expo One, Expo Two: Piano Text, and Inside the Quiet under the mysterious moniker of Aloof Proof. These releases, difficult to obtain when they were first sold, quickly disappeared into the hands of radio stations, private collectors, and lucky fans (and, in some cases, disappeared into warehouses to be unearthed years later) of ambient music. They have since achieved legendary notoriety within the ambient music community for their high-quality and groundbreaking sound as much as for their rarity.
