ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
................
80 MINUTES OF PURE INTOXICATING AND ADDICTING SOUNDS.
(visit www.FLOYDHEAD.com for more details)

"Inventive and Avant-Garde. The mystery, the awe, and the complex thought behind the original songs have been kept intact. As an abstract painter from the renaissance portrays his view of timeless objects, I have done so with the music of Pink Floyd."

DETAILS:
Floydhead is a collective of DJ's, musicians and graphic artists under the guidance of "Seth." The Floydian Propulsion Project (The Artistic Electronica of Pink Floyd) takes samples from every studio album released by Pink Floyd, then remixes, warps, distorts and channels the non-conformist, anti-establishment spirit of the band into a wholly original creation of artistic merit and style. This is more than just a loving tribute to Pink Floyd; this is collaboration between a generation of musicians raised on cutting edge technology with a band whose sound is synonymous with classic rock.

THE FLOYDIAN PROPULSION PROJECT:
Imagine, if you will, that you live not here, on this Earth, but someplace else (a place whose distance from your earthly office or bedroom wouldn't be measured in miles, but in light years). And on this planet far, far away, you had the short band equivalent of on interstellar receiver through which you could tune into the broadcasts of a 1,000 million civilizations scattered throughout the universe. And on this night, you turn your attention, for the first time, to a spot on the dial you'd never been. An ancient frequency, from a location on the far shores of a distant galaxy.

As you tune through the static of gamma ray bursts and radiation being emitted by neutron stars, the disorder on your speakers is soon replaced by the conscious construction of sound from an advanced civilization. It has taken millennia for these transmissions to cross the vast expanse of space that separates you from this place unseen, unknown - from a planet that very probably no longer exists, swallowed by the expansion of its own star.

A kaleidoscopic quilt of voices, melodies and instruments echoes in your dimly lit room. You calibrate your universal translator and hear sounds that you recognize as parody, irony, and playfulness. Boundaries between high and low forms of art are non-existent. You experience fragmentation and discontinuity. Tonight's transmission is destructured, decentered.

Though you can't know it in your world far removed from the source of original broadcast, you are experiencing a continuum from early television and music to Moog culture and DJ scratching, looping and sampling. Snippets from SciFi programs, classic movies and celebrations of consumer culture fill the space between the stars. In the midst of this glittery rubbish, however, is the recognizable sound of the universal constant - music. Emotional, visceral, sacred. The chaotic compendium of a lost civilization held together by lines of recognizable melody, lyric and song. Layers of complimentary instrumentation heaped upon the land fill of another planet's pop-culture. The musical samples are from the band Pink Floyd. The commercials and comedy and drama are the collective effort of 70 years of human endeavor in broadcasting.

As the two moons of your planet compete for space in the frame of your window, you lay back on your bed, amazed at the creativity of the these creatures hundreds of light years from your own world, and call your new discovery "The Floydian Propulsion Project."

SETH: Floydhead Master-Mind

On Making The Floydian Propulsion Project (The Artistic Electronica of Pink Floyd/3rd Edition)

"I was inspired to experiment with electronica...to mold these pieces using various shades of trance music, dance music, catchy-grooves, progressions, psychedelia, and conceptual art-based music. All-the-while maintaining a marginal pop-music structure.

As an obsessed Pink Floyd fan, I had everything of theirs. So I went to the next level; I studied Pink Floyd as if it were a subject in college. Then I started experimenting by combining computers and music, and Pink Floyd naturally fell in-between the two. What started as a few demos turned into a full blown quest to make a Pink Floyd remix album. I experimented and experimented, and kept what was really cool. I tried many things many different ways, and got some friends involved in parts of it. I ran into many learning-curve road blocks, such as the art of mastering, but in time overcame them. The 1st edition was 50 limited numbered CD's that I handed out to my friends and family. The positive feedback from those 50 gave me the inspiration to polish it up and make the 2nd edition - 200 copies. Those who got the 2nd edition gave me such great feedback that I had to release it to the masses... Polished it to perfection, and that's what is available now, the 3rd Edition.

I invite you to take an extended stay when listening to this disc. Ensure you are comfortable at all levels... make certain that your mind is at ease. Sit back, relax, and enjoy the sounds."

"Like all of the finest things on earth, there is an acquired taste to this music. However, your first listen will stimulate your subconscious to yearn for more.

An open-mind will find there is much more to this album than entertainment. Even the most basic interest in Pink Floyd will provoke thought... in turn, yielding a taste in the art of all that is Floydian..."

Genius!!!
Well, I can't stop listening to it! My hat's off to the creators, I'm glad to see that equal genius went into your remixes as did the original works! You should be very proud of yourselves! I'm planning to mix several trax's into my sets, I'll let you know how the populace reacts. Keep up the good work, I'm sure Pinky would be proud! Peace, Dan DJ3D

You did it!!!
I never thought I would hear Floyd with a modern electric sound that has as much history of the band as this cd does. This cd even tests my knowledge of the band and i've been listening and following them for decades. Everytime I listen to it I hear something else that I didnt' catch before. If your a serious Floyd Fan this cd is a must to have in your collection.
Great Job and can't wait to hear more

An understatement to say a masterpiece
Wow, I can't say enough to explain myself in explicit detail on how incredible this project is. You listen to the remixes to untouched original music and additional overlay of sounds and it's like being on an exploratory journey through heaven. This cd is highly recommended. I am kind of sad I can't rate higher than 5 stars, LOL. Sincerely, if you love pink floyd you need this cd. This cd sounds like it should. Thanks Floydhead! This cd is by far the best cd I have ever owned and for insight I have well over 500 cds and many many favorites, but from the moment you press play on this disc it's an instant "oh my" which follows with a giant smile and awe. I can't say enough except thank you so much for your extroadinary artistic abilities.

THE BEST IT GETS !!!!
I Agree with Reviewer-Joseph Croft ALL THE WAY AND THEN SOME MORE!!! THIS CD REALLY BLEW ME AWAY AND I MEAN IT !!!! IT IS VERY WORTH THE PRICE!DO GET IT, YOU WILL NOT BE DISAPPOINTED!!!

fulch1960

the 2nd pressing is fantastic. the 3rd must be better.
the 2nd edition is fantastic. if you are a true pink floyd fan than you must buy the new version 3. the 2nd pressing is the best remix cd that i have heard and i have at least 20 x re mix versions to date by various artists. i would buy this version 3 but it has two x added new tracks only. mayby number 4 if it comes out and has more extra tracks. ???
would someone be so kind as to send me a mp3 of v3 tracks 10. droolling and raving + 19. let there be more so as i can listen to them. david.fulcher@blueyonder.co.uk

Cd is good!

Love at First Listen
I love every track on this album except the first one. Somehow, the scratching and rapping in that first track just don't fit. I made a CD without the first track and I love it. It's in heavy daily rotation on my CD changer. So glad I stumbled on it. So, skip that first track and dig an amazing dance extension to the Pink Floyd sound. Floydian Propulsion, indeed!!!

René Schmidt of Magical Blend Magazine

Your favorite Pink Floyd tunes rocket-propelled into the 24-1/2th century!
Review from Magical Blend magazine :

Everybody knows who Pink Floyd is, but I

guarantee that you’ve NEVER heard them

like this! Mixmaster Seth and friends over at

The Floydian Propulsion Project have taken

your favorite Pink Floyd tunes and rocket-

propelled them into the 24-1/2th century! A

fresh take on the Pink Floyd classics, this

trance– and electronica–inspired collection

of remixes have been lovingly re-crafted

into an amazing blend of music. With this

well-produced and inspired CD, psychedelics

are no longer required to have a truly mind-

expanding experience!

Five Stars
This CD is worth 5 stars as far as I’m concerned. I only give 4 or 5 stars. When I was young my mother said that if you do not have anything good to say then don’t say nothing at all. So, if I buy a CD and I am sorry I did that…my response is to not rate it at all. If I am glad I got it I give it 4 stars. If I am overjoyed that I bought that CD it gets 5 stars.
