About the Pink Floyd Hyperbase

The original material for the Pink Floyd HyperBase was researched and compiled from 1988 - 1994. It was first used as an interactive CD-ROM demo. Some of the chapters were later updated and converted into this website which has been online since November 1997. The site consists of more than 250 html-pages and is regularly updated. Please report any errors from the contact page. The site is created and maintained by Jacob Crawfurd, photographer and owner of Crawfurd Media.

In February 2001 the site was moved to its own domain at The HyperBase also got a new look and a major content update.

Please inform me if you find something on this site that is wrong, violates copyright laws or should be removed for any other reason.

The Pink Floyd HyperBase has approximately 2500 visitors every day. The visitors are Pink Floyd fans from US, Denmark and Europe, Mexico, Lebanon, New Caledonia, Singapore, Mongolia, Brunei, Solomon Islands and the rest of the big world. Take a look on the comments page to see greetings from the visitors. Welcome to all of you.

To be honest there have not been too many updates in the recent years, but I still try to catch up with major news and releases concerning Pink Floyd and Roger Waters.
