A Saucerful of Secrets has some amazing songs. The one with lyrics about the UFO landing at Mildenhall is pretty cool. I don't think these guys were anything occult or secret, etc. Just really tuned in. Pink Floyd = my favorite band.

Developed in the 1980s by Hugo Zuccarelli, Holophonic Sound uses the same “multiple exposure” premise as that used to create holographic images (“holograms”). Holophonic Sound is produced by recording the interference pattern generated when the original recorded signal is combined with an inaudible digital reference signal. The recorded sound produced is so realistic, some people claim they can smell sulphur when they listen to a holophonic recording of someone striking a match! It appears that Holophonic Sound waves stimulate our brains to reproduce very realistic and truly three dimensional sound within us, thereby stimulating other corresponding responses that our brains expect to accompany the sound, (like scents or other sensations). Even more interesting is the fact that researchers report that some hearing impaired people can “hear” Holophonic Sound
from From Sounds "Guitar Heroes", #9 May 1983
DS: Can you tell me a bit about this Holophonic sound on the new album?
DG: There's some of it on this album. We really didn't have the time or energy to really do it justice on this record, I don't think. It is a system that works best on headphones. It works best on the Sony, the little Walkman type headphones. It's good on other headphones, and it does work to a certain extent on speakers. The type of sound effects and things you hear on the record are very realistic, they sound better and more realistic because of it but you don't get all the things that you get with it on headphones.
If you listen on point source speakers or time aligned speakers it works better than it does on the type of speakers that most people have on their hi-fi's these days, which are two or three way speakers which aren't time aligned and unfortunately the phase shift between the different speaker units in a cabinet tends to destroy part of the effect. On some of the demonstration stuff that I've heard from it, on Walkman headphones, it's quite astounding. You probably know the dummy head stereo..."
Well, there's a dummy head thing that Neumann and Sennheiser used to make - a dummy head microphone thing, where you just have a head with microphones in, and if you listen back to stuff recorded on that on headphones, you actually get all-round sound. But this one does all-round sound and up and down and all sorts of strange stuff.
It has a dynamic thing as well, where it affects the dynamics and you can have things that appear to your brain to be fantastically loud, but they're not moving the needles very loud at all. It's not actually a loud sound on the tape,but your brain thinks it is. The secret of this Holophonic thing is that it actually fools your brain; it's not what is actually on the tape or on the record, that isn't all of it - it's actually making a reaction with your brain; it's very hard to explain but it alters how you perceive the sound.
Were they part of an elaborate scheme during the psychadelic 60s to forge new ground in mind control?

I think they were a bunch of talented young individuals trying to understand the world around them and express that through their music.

And I wonder that if he was in anyway possesed even a little, that could be why there were strange messages in his music.
