Ed Wynne has solved the mystery of time travel. As the keyboardist / guitarist / chief programmer / creative mastermind of the band Ozric Tentacles, Wynne traverses the ages through his primordial yet distinctly modern, mind-bending music. The Somerset, England, resident is a citizen of the world: his art knows no boundaries in time or space.
Wynne jokingly refers to OT's music as "ethnological forgery", but Ozrics' new Magna Carta release, The Floor's Too Far Away, is far from bogus. Recorded in Wynne's home studio in Somerset, England, the nine-track, all-instrumental CD is a musical reflection of Wynne's centrifugal creative vision; a vision synthesized into a spiraled, multifaceted tapestry of butt-moving, trance-inducing, ethno-techno space rock. Rife with incessant intergalactic grooves, the new record offers a satisfying, near state-altering listening experience.
