ecr 05 - Psychic Space Invasion - book of dreams
'Holloway creates ambient music that is deep, spacey, complex and exceedingly dark. He fills his sonic space with mysterious drones, some of them deep and oceanic, others thin and shrill. Through the drones, gurgling electronics, twitching, twittering glitches, spacer moans, bell like chimes and distant voices echo and melt. And even though this music can be categorised as ambient, it never completely drifts into the background. Sometimes the sounds are so arresting that it is impossible to divert your attention away from them.' - jeff fitzgerald, aural innovations.
available to download at the biv0uac website.

collage sleeve by neil (directive 4) rowling.
ecr 09 - Jebus - the ants are eating my head
'[...] four untitled pieces [...] cyber-tooled with murky throbbings, zero grav oscillations and arrhythmic metallic skritching. Theirs is a sound that is surely more than the sum of their influences and one as spicily alien as modernist taste decrees.' - steve prescott, rumbles, terrascope online.
ecr 10 - Ian Holloway - music for eating
private commission of eno-esque piano pieces.
ecr 11 - Psychic Space Invasion - and the cows go mu
'Hear drones sprinkled with shimmers and coo's, hearken distant planetary landscapes and almost imperceptible sonic evolutions washing over and through one's sensibilities. Sample delicate whirrings that shift position and change shape, scurrying up front before backing off and then reconverging into an imperceptibly controlled lava-lamp of sound. CRAZY DADDIO!!' - gary simmons, giag zine.
ecr 12 - Itto - sound on an empty road
itto is ian (PSI) and neil (Directive 4).
'throughout this is more abstract and experimental drone music than 'just' drone music. At times the frequencies used are a bit too nasty and mean to get classified as pure drone music, but this more adventurous road is certainly one of the things that make this one of the better ones in it's genre.' - frans de waard, vital zine
ecr 13 - Psychic Space Invasion - the magpie rhyme
'Here the music is also lurking in ambient corners, but is throughout more musical and less based on drone music. Strange percussive sounds and guitar feedback set against a wall of ambient sounds, making this a more massive release [than '...mu'], filled with sound from every corner.' - frans de waard, vital zine
ecr 14 - Psychic Space Invasion - all god's children got space
'Ian Holloway / Psychic Space Invasion has created a minor masterpiece of static minimalism which you'd be silly not to grab. [...] Warmly recommended.' - Massimo Ricci, Touching Extremes.
