"Among the most prolific artists in contemporary music, Bill Laswell's imprint is on literally hundreds of albums...fusing the energy of punk with the bone-rattling rhythms of funk." - ALL MUSIC GUIDE With over 20 years experience as a touring musician and composer and nearly 300 albums to his credit, producer and bassist Bill Laswell has collaborated with some of the most illustrious names in music across all genres and boundaries, including Herbie Hancock, Mick Jagger, Laurie Anderson, Pharoah Sanders, Yoko Ono, Iggy Pop, The Last Poets, Buddy Miles, George Clinton, Bootsy Collins, Afrika Bambaataa, Tony Williams, Peter Gabriel and countless others. Psychonavigation, constructed by Pete Namlook (composer/creator of the Fax+49 label) and Laswell (creator/producer of the groundbreaking Axiom label) is an exploration of ambient underground psych. Laswell and Namlook join forces to produce the soundtrack for a journey through a telepathic mind. Endless soundscapes from Laswell's dubby bass, filled with drones and morphing fields, combine with Namlook's spheres to make the listener feel at one with the universe.

"Psychonavigation is atmospheric music at "just about its best". This is on the (now-defunct I believe) Subharmonic label, and uses alot of subharmonics. It is best listened to with a sub woofer for maximum effect. Most people into ambient/space music would consider this music/atmosphere on the dark side, but I enjoy atmospherics as much as more "musical" pieces. Laswell and Namlook are "must haves" for any ambient collector."

"When I bought this cd, and I listened it for the first time, I thought What the hell??
But when you listen carefully everything makes sense, the guy is a genius.
Lately I'm into experimental music but this is the bomb.
If you like pete namlook then this is a mst have.
Bill laswell goes beyond experimental, and it takes many listenings to get into the music but if you are, It's awesome"
