Alpha Wave Movement Music in Grand Theft 4 Video Game

If any of you out there in cyberspace are fans of video games Grand Theft Auto 4 has included some music from the Alpha Wave Movement cd "Transcendence" in the radio station Self-Actualization FM.

Surprised to see my music up there with Autechre and ambient genius Pete Namlook!

Here is the information and link on Wikipedia:

In the meantime new releases have been postponed until 2011. The music for the next Alpha Wave Movement cd based on utilizing mainly Ensoniq synthesizers has been completed. The title of the release is "Soniq Variants".

This might be the first release for the new year and will be a limited quantity release on cd-r. With the decline of cd market and the upswing of mp3 sales this is a viable decision I will have to make.
