Line-up / Musicians

NODENS ICTUS was the name given to a project formed by Ed Wynne of the OZRIC TENTACLES and Joie Hinton, (formerly of the OZRICS', now in EAT STATIC), to explore a more ambient direction of the OZRICS' unique sound, ditching most of the drums, bass and guitar in favour of analogue and digital synths and samplers.

Review by obiter
3 stars Very chilled trippy album. I would recommend this to a space progger or a dance fiend as a chill out but not to someone outside the space prog/dance genre.

Haunting, memorable and very synth. The music invites the listener to come and walk in bizarre and alien lands: more romantic and dreadful than our own. It's like Sibelius to that extent.

And this is the difficulty in reviewing the album: I can see the beautiful ambient soundscapes ... great for those with imaginations and the fanatsy gamers out there, but does it cut the mustard as a prog album.

I really don't know. One day it carries me away, the next time I listen it's bland and I skip on to somehitng else.

4 stars Can you imagine Fripp & Eno's No Pussyfooting in space and gettin' better than the original one? I am very attracted by sci-fi and space stuff. Maybe this simple (but very creative) cover art made me get this piece. It's a space ambiental project by members from Ozric Tentacles and Eat Stat ... (read more)

4 stars Veery good. Modens Ictus is another Ozric Tentacles related project, but this one is, i think, more electro and more acid than the Ozrics themselves. The album is basically for people on drugs, not as a criticism, but as a fact; the music has that dimension and a very different, whimsical flav ... (read more)

5 stars I first heard Noden's 'bout '92?. I was a little miffed at one of my favourite tunes on the tape I heard was not on the CD. Even so, I highly recommend Spacelines for pure chill out ambient synth/spaceout with rain forest/tribal chat accompaniment (though not at all cheesy - the music is at one wi ... (read more)
