Thanks for listening to the music. The tracks below are heavily edited excerpts from two records, Colony & Invasion.
While both albums were written as fictitious soundtracks, each has its own story/theme:
Colony depicts an unknown disaster unfolding at an interstellar colony, as the inhabitants are ultimately turned into stardust. Themes here are akin to the solace and atmosphere of 2001.
Invasion depicts a more active / contemporary invasion of the earth, in the fashion of Invasion of the Body Snatchers meets Blade Runner.
You can choose either playlist. The first has no audio gaps between tracks.

BIO AND INFO
“Score for a trip into the great black beyond.” – Noisey:
“These soundtracks to the exploration of the unknown caress the unfathomable depths of space and time through sound with a haunting, alien dread countering an unshakable sense of reverence.” – About.com
IIVII (ivy) is the enigmatic inter-galactic solo project spearheaded by visual artist, creative director, multi-instrumentalist and composer Josh Graham. Focusing on sonically engulfing and moody soundscapes, layered with a science-fiction edge, IIVII traverses genre and explores elements of drone, classical, ambient, electronica, and vaporwave.
The Postrocker.nl review for the DUNK Festival states, “Transcendental soundscapes featuring stunning imagery from outer space, this was hallucinating. I sat down in the Stargazer tent and after 10 minutes, I drifted away in a slumber with great soundscapes touching my ears. After a half hour, the set finished without a warning and the whole floor immediately awoke out of a deeply induced trance. A great diversion from the loud, up-tempo postrock on the main stage. This could go on for hours, but it had to end sometimes. A beautiful orchestra of ambient sci-fi for a movie that will never be.”
