Spirals In Hyperspace
The Ozric Tentacles home page is pumped over the instrumental space rock band's first studio CD in quite some time, "Spirals In Hyperspace", "Be prepared to be totally blown away! Once again the band has come through with a monster album. The tracks are long and really groove. The band has taken the Ozric sound to a whole new level. The dynamic range on the tracks is incredible. Make sure you listen to this on a high quality receiver. Definitely a must have." Guitarist Ed Wynne has a very distinctive playing style that is peppered with weird and wonderful scales reported Guitarist magazine in 1994. Wynne comments, "Unfortunately I don't read music and I don't have any musical theory, so I couldn't name them. They're probably hybrids. There are about 10 different eastern sounding scales that I use, depending on what type of rhythm is behind it. I don't know what they are called, but they are very ethnic sounding. I do like the eastern scales. A lot of what I listen to is very, very raw ethnic music. People out in the middle of nowhere staying on a campsite clonking bits of wood together and playing home made violins and stuff. "
