VA - Obscured By Clouds 50 Space Rock Masterpieces CD1+CD2





SPACE ROCK

Space Rock is a style of rock music. The style evolved off of Psychedelic, and Progressing rock music. The style is known for having lyrics related to Space, and Sci-Fi topics. It's also known for having spacey effects in their music.(Discogs)

The late 1960's psychedelic rock scene spawned the birth of the space rock genre. The pioneering acts of this genre assimilated krautrock elements like repetitive hypnotic beats and electronic/ambient soundscapes as they moved away from the common musical and compositional approach. The synthesizer with its bubbling tones and spacey patterns, provoking a gliding flow, is a typical instrument of this genre. Guitars are by preference played with glissando technique and delay/echo effects are heavily used, and elements originating from reggae/dub are fairly common. Several bands combine their live performances with trippy lightshows using random fractals. Albums in this genre will often include at least one long meandering jam based on a main theme, where loops and wavelike fluctuations provides slight variations to this structural foundation. Stories, images, song titles and album names referring to cosmic themes are fairly common features of the genre. A space rock scene can be found in most countries sporting artists producing music with a western-oriented or influenced sound... (progarchives.com)
