Album Notes
HovR is the second album from Anomalous Disturbances (2003)

Released on Terrence's label imprint, Disappearing Music.

From the hallucinogenic dreamscape environs of "Strange Fruit" to the hymn-like "Sombunall", this CD is best suited for low volume listening.

rik maclean of Ping Things says of HovR;

"Following up his first release "The Spirit Molecule", Terry O'Brien of Anomalous Disturbances has created a fantastic work with "HovR". totally engaging, spellbinding and beguiling, this disc hasn't left my stereo since I got it."

Dodds Wiley of says;

"Very serene and thoughtful, this album is great for contemplation and unwinding. Terry O'Brien has crafted a work of great inventiveness and beauty. Recommended and a nice way to slow down the pace of this modern, hectic world! "

Excellent grooves. The CD has imagination. This where I hoped ambient music would venture. Worth a listen.

Lush soundscapes with a variety of textures and atmospheres
This is a great late evening drift-away-in-it kind of album. Aside from a couple of darker, edgier pieces near the beginning, the bulk of this involves pretty melodies nicely couched in lush synth chords. But it avoids the usual sappy new age cliches, and sounds really fresh and original.

All sounds are supposedly triggered by (MIDI?) guitar, but aside from some Steve Hillage-like passages you would swear this is all keyboards. Especially the tune that sounds like it was played on electric organ. The diverse range of timbres and textures helps keep it interesting.

Another great soundscape adventure
This is the 2nd long awaited release of the Canadian musician Terry O’Brien who already surprised me with his engaging album The Spirit Molecule.
Well, Hovr features lots of delicately structured repetitive elements, again created via electronically modified looping guitar and is another masterful recording.
E.g. the grand track “Apparitions” offers some very nice lingering guitar-work which brings a minimalistic Michael Brook to mind. The following soft pulsating soundscape-renderings have a strong visual content next to environmental sounds which pop up here and there. On one side these tracks float and shift, but can also forward a beautiful soaring statement which brings melancholy to the surface. Things even get ethereal like on the 5th track “September”, which blends light textures which wash on and on.
All in all, Terry has done another great job offering this textural mastery to the fans of introspective ambient music.
Please don’t wait or hesitate too long as this CD-r is a limited edition of only 200 copies containing some wonderful thermal printing on the cover….
