Holectics is a programme facilitated by AAS, the precise purpose and function of which is in a state of constant, molecular, flux. However, it is clear that it is for the benefit and development of all humanity towards an uncertain future.

Holectics Research Recordings is dedicated to the promotion and investigation of Holectics through educational and anthropological research aids on cassette and other media.

Recordings for research proposes only.

Radio Free Midwich review of Balancing Ritual (HRR 001)
Y’know when your favourite stoner rock band lay down a super heavy, half-hour long, ego-obliterating, tethered crescendo but it isn’t quite enough so you and a hardy group of the suspicious break into one of the spaceships of a seemingly benevolent alien race currently visiting Earth and discover this playing inside?  Yeah?  A version of the above but clinical, steely, a step up from our humble efforts.  It’s like that and I, for one, welcome our new drone overlords…

Rotational Review on The Cult of Sonic Affect (HR002)
neolithic fountain-makers, sun and sky sourced for polished original arching scoper. happening. of/in the moment. overfull. overing anything that can stand up and take care of its own shape, blasting it out into churn-heavy dulling crescendo. and quick. greater chance the parts spurn out psych in muddy tactile creation, greater chance it acts as one beast, one singular monster crytpic mind catching out. group-bash but less hit-hard rock-thing. dangerous if improperly communed. tight to the path though, rocks more in line with a hammer drill connected equally. connective tissue keeping the rot out. devil-at-bay, or right inside it all, that’s their call to call it. that they let us into this church-of-something corner at all: mighty nice of them.

AAS Drone Ship

AAS were invited by David Blandy to build an installation based on the anime series Space Battleship Yamato in his exhibition exploring the interplay between Japanese and English culture.

This ‘film set’ style installation developed our interest in science fiction and the suspension of disbelief, previously seen in our Quatermass projects.

Time Wave Zero

On Friday the 21st December 2012, we reached Time Wave Zero, coinciding with the resetting of time predicted by the ancient Mayans.

We prepared for this with our Syringe Drone (sacred dose) ritual at Reactor’s Function VI on 20th October, where the Syringe was purified and prepared to receive The Eternal Drone in it’s full capacity, and released into the world.

The sacred space was marked out with sage, salt and flame.
The sacrificial drone syringe at the centre of the sigil submitted to being bound with multiple cords.
The syringe was dosed with sacred liquor, forming a font for marking the gathered host.
The syringe addressed the host through bubbles, accepting the eternal drone into its mind, heart, flesh and bones.
The syringe’s heart was removed, set aflame, transmuted into crystal and returned to his chest.
He was released and embraced by the eternal, sacred, drone.

Since the ritual, what was hidden has been revealed as The Syringe meditated upon the drone, to find a diagram that we could use to restore balance.

Syringe Rocket (Feedback Device)

On Wednesday the 21st of November 2012, AAS put the dosed syringe’s power into action. The dosed syringe was actually a dimensional rocket; a needle for piercing time-space and it created a feedback loop of knowledge and information to be used as a sonic device to counteract any negative affects of Timewave Zero.


  • Sit inside a circle
  • Provide a background drone
  • Generate knowledge through sound and drifting
  • Communicate/repeat/transmit the sound

The result was the Greenwich Meat Time-Wave Zero Syringe Rocket (Feedback Device), which we used to inject the drone into the point of rebirth, and propel us all into an exciting new future.

Greenwich Meridian Audio Line

Time Wave Zero happened at 11.30am on December the 21st 2012. On that day we met in Greenwich, London to play the Greenwich Meat Time-Wave Zero Syringe Rocket (Feedback Device) especially created to counter any negative affects of Time Wave Zero.

We climbed and climbed, but we never got to the top. Eventually we found the line. We suspected there were attempts to disrupt our mission. We stood in formation along the line playing the device from wherever we stood. Now that we have reached zero, there is no where else to go but forwards, even if that means going backwards.
