Title: Gemini Suite
Format: LP
Label: Amethyst Sunset
Country: USA
Price: $36.00
“Outer Space return with Gemini Suite, their first new material since 2014s Phantom Center, released on Editions Mego (EMEGO 196EP). Similar to Brian Enos Discreet Music (1975) wherein he focused more on an ambient sound than on previous records, Gemini Suite finds the core duo of John Elliott and Drew Veres focusing more on the ambient side of Outer Space while still maintaining and producing their distinct alluring synth sound. Gemini Suite is one long beautiful lush thirty minute piece split over two sides complete with chirping birds and crashing waves fit for late night meditations and long drives on I-71. Highly recommended for fans of Imaginary Softwoodss The Path of Spectrolite (AICD 003CD), previously released by Amethyst Sunset in 2011.” - Amethyst Sunset.

Title: Perfect Vacuum
Format: Cass
Label: Arbor
Country: USA
Price: $9.00
"John Elliot (of Emeralds, Lilypad, Daylight Savings Time) has spent many years mastering his MS-10. This tape from his young Outer Space project is an exploratory trip into the deep caves; synthesized water drips into stalactite formation. Heavy "whats it" zones, broadening the boundaries: refusing the molds of synth drone by creating something entirely singular: uncharted. In an edition of 150 tapes with full color art and labels." -Arbor

Title: s/t
Format: LP
Label: Arbor
Country: USA
Price: $14.00
"John Elliotts Outer Space project is a laboratory for electronic investigation. Acting as a continuance of the studies of mid 20th century electronic music composers such as Nik Pascal and Laurie Spiegel, Elliotts music is deeply indebted to the inner workings of the electric signal. Acting almost as a meditation, through the simple gesture of translation Elliotts process begins to reveal itself as electricity is converted into acoustic pressure and potential; the melody of physics. The six recordings on the album are each a microcosmic view into Elliotts practice; a keystone, illuminating his solo practice as well as his work as a member of Emeralds. Composed and recorded over the past three years without the use of digital synthesizers and arpeggiation; a record closely connected to a personal path, attempting to make sense, to understand ones journey. Mastered by Keith Fullerton Whitman; pressed in a second edition of 350 copies on black vinyl with full color gloss covers and black and white printed inner sleeves.." -Arbor

Title: Outer Space 2
Format: LP
Label: Blast First Petite
Country: UK
Price: $23.00
"John Elliot, operating under the moniker Outer Space IS one third of American nu-electronicists, Emeralds. Musically, this is an electronic smorgasbord of five trippy tropes that rip the inner light fantastic. II is the logical progression. It is an effort based on group format, and is an evolution from the debut Outer Space album. The central core of Elliott and Andrew Veres worked to arrange, record, and mix for a new direction and a new sound; headed down a path of cracked concrete and dissolving memory from the aether. Many different textures and composing methods are applied here, to make a more varied and spontaneous array of songs. Experiments ranging from looped, broken m-400, jagged rhythm beds, and modular synthesis. Severing the obsessions of death and anxiety, and creating a work based on "the current," and those involved in the process, II has a different feel with less claustrophobia and more breathable air. Imagine the sounds are a liquid, with different masses and changing color. II is first in a trilogy of sounds to be released in 2012. Its considered to be the second full-length effort by the project. Reality comes first here with a narrative of events that are real and happening right now. Close attention to detail reveals more than what is seen on the surface. The information is presented clearly; its up to the listener to use the intelligence provided for full comprehensive understanding. Guest appearances by: Andrew Veres, Philip J. Whiteside, Drew McDowall, Jeff Hatfield and Adam Miller. Produced with Mellotron M-400 and synthesizer. Sounds mastered by James Plotkin. The artwork features gentle, acidic, shimmering drawings by Graham Lambkin. Printed on a deluxe mirror board and pressed on 150 gram vinyl. Limited edition of 1,000 copies." -Blast First Petite.

Title: Phantom Center
Format: 12"
Label: Editions Mego
Country: Austria
Price: $16.00
“John Elliott and Andrew Veres have been refining their creative powers as Outer Space since 2010 with Akashic Record (SPC 019LP) and II (PTYT 055LP). The pair now release their first new material since 2012, Elliotts first since Emeralds ceased and the first as a duo. Editions Mego are well-chuffed to release Phantom Center, a stunning two-track EP. "Arrival and Assessment" confidently sets the tone with multi levels of bass lines weaving around complex rhythms and those vast atmospheres we come to expect from this project. The earth-shattering "Crixa / 5925" is the perfect soundtrack to staring into an endless void with bottomless sub-bass and Raicevic-informed synthesizer disarray.” - Editions Mego.

Title: Akashic Record (Events: 1986-1990)
Format: LP
Label: Spectrum Spools
Country: USA
Price: $21.00
"Outer Space is a rapidly-evolving sound entity headed by John Elliott and joined by a constantly rotating cast of Midwestern U.S. electronic figures. Akashic Record sees the project grow in many different directions from the self-titled Arbor album created throughout 2008 and 2009 while retaining similar aesthetics of synthesizer experimentation and its esoteric relations. Recorded over the course of a year with close engineering assistance and compositional contributions from Andrew Veres in home and studio situations, a fresh array of fidelities and ideas previously unexplored have been mined and documented. New contributions from the elusive Philip Whiteside (of Wavehead) and Drew McDowall (past Coil/current Mirror Eye member) expand, stretch and challenge previous working methods. In the tradition of many other past releases, Jeff Hatfield (of Cleveland, Ohios Fragments) makes his essential appearance as well. Akashic Record sees the project move on from the stripped-down, primitive nature of the old into a more urgent, fractured and aggressive set of reality-based compositions. The work was created based on the events of others in mind; those doomed to circumstances beyond predictability or imagination. Cut at Dubplates & Mastering, Berlin." -Spectrum Spools.
