Alpha Wave Movement - Earthen CD New Release

The latest electronically infused synaptic soma from Alpha Wave Movement titles "Earthen" is now available from the Anodize website on CD. 

Official press release from Anodize
*Audio samples of all the tracks are available at the link below*

The latest from Gregory Kyryluk, aka Alpha Wave Movement, finds the artist bringing nearly 20 years of inventive electronic composition to bear on the auguring of these six new, spatial works of devastatingly beautiful soundscapes. Priding himself on using a minimal array of analog gear, reverb units, and a surfeit of imagination & ideas, Kyryluk has released one of the best AWM recordings yet, conclusive evidence that his prowess holds him as master of his electronic domain.

Kyryluk isn't content to rest on his laurels, style-wise. While it's true that the music of AWM can comfortably nestle inside such generalized genre appellations as 'space music', 'ambient', 'meditative', or 'Berlin school' (meaning the synth/sequencer approaches initialized by Teutonic forebears Tangerine Dream, Klaus Schulze, et al), what always differentiates one AWM recording from the next is the fact that, to put a fine point on it, each does dare to be different. Kyryluk is a master of texturalizing, his working methods revealing meticulous precision and attention to detail; his sonic palette indeed comes alive through a bursting array of colors, subtle sweeps of nuance, and genuinely deft turns of tonal phrase.
As is the case with any self-respecting electronic musician's years-long dedication to building a large, reputable body of work, each record may be of a piece, the artist's innate 'sound' easily recognized, but Kyryluk takes great pains to separate his recordings' essential sonic architecture from one disc to the next. And, here on "Earthen", those decades worth of analog, digital, virtual, but always hands-on musicmaking seems to have culminated in perhaps one of the finest AWM outings thus far. Only this time, it's not only space that is the place—set your controls for the core of the planet.

Thought Guild Third Voyage CD Re-Release 2015 + Xtra Music 

Harmonic Resonance Recordings has re-released Thought Guild's "Third Voyage" for 2015 with an additional archival track "Ki" which was lost in the digital vaults for over ten years!

Ki is an all improvised track much like all the other Thought Guild music and carries an air of spontaneity whilst channeling the vibes and feel of that "vintage" 1970s/80 style of synthesizer music drawn from the European and domestic well of music inspiration. If memory serves well we used a Kurzweil K2000, ARP Solus, Moog Prodigy, ELKA Rhapsody and a few Novation modules.The track is not without incidence and has not been edited in any way. Its raw its real and it is Thought Guild.

"Third Voyage" was originally released in a limited edition hand made 5 1/4 retro floppy disc packaging of 50 hand numbered copies in 2012. The release quickly sold out and as of 2012 the music was available in digital format only. There was and will be no further studio music from Thought Guild. The project is now defunct.
CD and Digital is available from the HRR Bandcamp Page HERE......

Thought Guild Summers End -Single Archival Track

In addition to the Thought Guild re-release I have also uploaded another live studio improvisation featuring me on electric guitar and Kurzweil with Christopher on Moog & ARP. This is a beautiful laid back composition that as the title states brings that wonderful feeling of Summer's alchemical morphing into falls colorful splendors.

Alpha Wave Movement News
A new Alpha Wave Movement cd is currently in the process of being completed and will be tentatively released on Anodize in the coming months of 2015.

Titled " Earthen" the next AWM cd will be a part of an ambient trilogy known as the Mind Tonic Series (MTS) which will focus on beat-less ambient music drawn upon the influence of the natural world. Music will channel a diversity of minimal and subtly dynamic compositional structures designed in aiding a calmer state of mind.

System A + Celestial Chronicles Listed In Top 2014 Albums

Alpha Wave Movement "System A" is officially available on CD and as a digital download.

A hidden bonus track is included and is only available on the CD version of System A. 

This is the first release of 2015 and is in the continuum of blissful space music albeit with a cosmic dash of dark timbral synthy additives and netherworld-ly samples mixed into the cosmic amalgamate.

"A variable region of tonal highways where the stellar fields are the central force driving create muses. The cryptic particulates of matter co-mingle with electronic modulations and distant murmuring throbs of pulsar emanations. Music that ventures beyond this mortal coil into deeper stygian vistas and fringe archaic cosmos." 

The Ambient Music Guide website mentioned Alpha Wave Movement "Celestial Chronicles" in the top 2014 releases of 2014

Here is the link for further reading.

Open Canvas "Relics of the Sun - Dune Tunes 1997-1999" CD/Digital Release
A new cd/digital album of archival music from my world music project Open Canvas is now available. This is a limited run of cd's once gone there will not be a repress.

History of Open Canvas:

Open Canvas was an alias I recorded under that explored ethnic music from the eastern regions of the globe fusing melodic and rhythmic ingredients into an electronic setting. The project drew its inspiration mainly from Middle Eastern and Indian music with a subtle dash of Jamaican dub. Open Canvas was never conceived to be an approximation or assimilation of tradition. The project was however an "open' forum for me to hybridize elements that where not present in my ambient/space music project Alpha Wave Movement.

There where three Open Canvas releases with the genesis being Nomadic Impressions (Waveform Records 1998) followed by Indumani (Waveform 2000) and in closing Travel By Sound (HRR 2005).
Release Details:

"A sun parched collection of demo and remix tracks recorded in the 1990s buried deep in the vaults of the frequency pharaohs."

Music recorded by Gregory Kyryluk aka Alpha Wave Movement under the Open Canvas alias (no longer active).

These tracks where ideas, mixes, remixes and demo's composed prior to Nomadic Impressions and in between and after the second Open Canvas release Indumani.
