Alpha Wave Movement

Alpha Wave Movement (established 1992) is the electronic music project of Gregory T. Kyryluk. Alpha Wave Movement's musical style can be considered ambient, New Age, some space rock, and the classic 1970s period German style electronic music otherwise known as Berlin school and the ambient aesthetics of Brian Eno, and Steve Roach. Alpha Wave Movement's other projects include Thought Guild, Open Canvas and Kyryluk's solo releases.

Alpha Wave Movement + Jim Cole - Bislama

Artist: Alpha Wave Movement & Jim Cole
P: 2006
Bislama is the first collaboration between the unlikely duo of Alpha Wave Movement (aka synthesist Gregory Kyryluk) and overtone singer Jim Cole (of Spectral Voices). On paper this album seems like an odd match; the pairing of an electronic musician steeped in modern rhythms with a vocalist disciplined in the enigmatic practice of throat singing. With this wonderful release, the pair successfully combine their talents into something more than each is capable of on their own.   Theoretically, the influence of Bislama has been the culture and music of Micronesia. The music and mood absolutely reflect this through Kyryluk's imaginative use of sounds and tones both electronically manipulated and synthetic in origin along with Cole's wonderous singing and chanting. Ceremonial bells ring, exotic percussion rumble, gamelan rhythms cycle, all beneath a varying layer of floating synth pads and harmonic vocal improvisations. But the idea of this album is deeper than its cultural sources. Bislama is a metamorphasis of talent, sound and music derived through collaboration and improvisation. The two have created an album stylistically unique and complexly diverse.

Alpha Wave Movement - A Distant Signal

Artist: Alpha Wave Movement
P: 2002
The CD is both peaceful and moving and is full of interesting themes and melodies, a great collection of tracks in the tradition of classic space music. Gregory Kyryluk has turned out a pair of eminently listenable pieces that neatly combine spacemusic, chill, and solid electronic music.
A Distant Signal is the mellower of the two, a comfotable ride through space made funky with smooth beats laid under weightless synth pads and melodies laden with velvety hooks. It glides back and forth between soothing drifts and impulse-drive sequencer moments.
Standout tracks include "A Place of Peace", which epitomizes the album's drift-to-groove style, and the gentle "Portal Full of Stars" which ushers in the final few tracks of the album, where AWM gives the listener a dose of suspended-animation chill-out.

Alpha Wave Movement - Architexture of Silence

Artist: Alpha Wave Movement
P: 2013
On an irregular basis, I absolutely love to listen to some sophisticated ambient music in the final hours of the day or in early night time. It gives an opportunity to reflect a bit on things and put the mind to rest before turning to bed. The following recording is most suitable for such occasions.
"Architexture of Silence", the 18th release by Alpha Wave Movement, sees the return of composer Gregory Kyryluk using a very minimal hardware (0% software synthesis) setup and no computer-based sequencing whatsoever. He actually relied on an old-school hardware sequencer as a sketch pad while carefully shaping and sculpting the five gentle movements (all ranging between 10 and 14 minutes in length) that would end up as this full-length cosmic album.
The freeform and neatly structured outcome is subtle and tranquil, taking on slow turns and shapes as it progresses in a fluid, transparent tapestry of soft shimmering and slow morphing (drone)textures. It’s not exactly meditative, but harmonic with a certain soothing, minimal current running underneath.
I recommend listening to "Architexture of Silence" with a good pair of headphones and at low volume to get the full aural pleasure.

Alpha Wave Movement - Beyond Silence

Artist: Alpha Wave Movement
P: 2005
The CD is a highly energetic workout of kinetic sequencer passages, percussion and synth solos. Beyond Silence draws from the old and new to create a CD many listeners will enjoy. There are of course nods to the classic emusic composers as affinity for cosmic rock. The Zen Machine” is a very catchy piece with a three-pronged attack of great sequencing, cool synth leads, and infectious beats. It has a similar feel to stronger works by Tangerine Dream around the time of Le Parc, pop-length tunes that paint enjoyable pictures with sound. A low pulsing synth starts “Farewell Voyager” planted firmly in the early 80s sound of both TD and Jean-Michel Jarre. And “Further Out” is reminiscent of Jonn Serrie’s early space music.
Sometimes it sounds like Waveshape.
Kinetic Transfer” is an exciting, almost frantic number. Both in sound and in name, this reminds of an earlier Alpha Wave Movement release, Concept of Motion. There is also more than a little nod to Steve Roach’s Stormwarning.
In marked contrast, “Echoes” has a gentle feel, building at just the right pace.

Alpha Wave Movement - Cerulean Skies

Artist: Alpha Wave Movement
P: 2017
The sky, clouds and their ceaseless dichotomy of colors and patterns helped inspire the music for this release. Synthetic atmospheres and rhythmic dialog depict the inherent dynamic splendor of inspiration......
Inspired by the plethora of beauty up above our heads as we walk beyond the confines of the concrete, glass and steel into this dome of sunlit blue. Electronic music quiet and reflective like images of a deep cerulean cirrus laden sky or as ominously nebulous as a approaching supercell.

Alpha Wave Movement - Concept of Motion

Artist: Alpha Wave Movement
P: 1998
"Concept of Motion" finds Kyryluk exploring a wide range of styles.
The album starts with a great upbeat grabber, "Linear Perspective." The sequencers come fast and furious, staccato style. The synth bass, the arrangement, everything on this song is really fun. There is so much going on that it's a wonder it doesn't end up a chaotic mess, but somehow it succeeds very well. The energy is infectious.
Though "Linear Perspectives" is very good, my favorite songs on "Concept of Motion" are the slower, floating pieces. "Across the Axis" is a good mid-tempo piece with some cool sound effects.
"Ocean of Dreams" is a very interesting selection, with sudden key changes and simple, effective piano leads that remind me of Klaus Schulze. This song starts in a floating frame of mind, but like most of the album, succumbs to a fair amount of percussion.
At its heart, "Concept of Motion" is a expression of constant activity, and it will be interesting to see where this musical motion finds the next Alpha Wave Movement release.

Alpha Wave Movement - Cosmic Mandala

Artist: Alpha Wave Movement
P: 2010
Fusing inner & interstellar ambient teutonic musical elements into a harmonious tone capsule for the adventurous listener yearning for their next sonic enlightenment Ambient space and Post-Berlin school electronica. The release from Alpha Wave Movement is a two-part smooth, soaring collection of synthetic music with relaxing beats and twinkling sequences.
Ambient atmospheres support melodic progressions and optimistic themes - in places there are lead lines that are dynamic, improvisational affairs demanding the attention, in other places warm sequential patterns come to the fore. Long free-form passages of beatless meandering are interspersed among the more rhythmic material - expansive, galactic interludes serene, expectant. These occasionally morph imperceptibly into motion as cycling structures crystallise, the regularity of arpeggio forms building into multi-layered complexities and dispersing once more. Asian percussion metallics form ponderous muted beats among the more lively programmed grooves and there are some moments of hand drumming.
The latter part of the CD is without percussive beats; here the waves and washes of layered tone are given momentum via broad, clean sweeps and gleaming lattice works.

Alpha Wave Movement - Cosmology

Artist: Alpha Wave Movement
P: 2003
On “Cosmology” we can hear almost everything EM has to offer, from ambient, through retro-sequences to melodically rhythmic stuff.
The first track “Prologue Sequence” is, as the title says, based on sequences. “Teutonic Voyage” is a composition only Kyryluk can create. It starts moody and after this great sequences and rhythms take over. This is absolutely top-EM. The same counts for “Sailing Orion” which is superb spacemusic: quiet, relaxing and with excellent sounds that surround an easy sequence. In the more melodically and rhythmic “Celestial Mechanics” and the loungy “Rendezvous” he proves not to pinpoint on only one style of EM. The spacesounds return in “Deep Outpost” and “Distant Edens”.
All tracks composed & recorded by Gregory Kyryluk
Track 7 with Jim Cole on Vox and Christopher Cameron on additional synths and rainstick.
Track 8 with Christopher Cameron Moog melodies, MS20 and ESQ-1.

Alpha Wave Movement - Drifted into Deeper Lands

Artist: Alpha Wave Movement
P: 1998/ 2000
Alpha Wave Movement is one of the recording guises of synthesist Gregory Kyryluk. Kyryluk invokes the synth gods on Drifted Into Deeper Lands, and has put together a great CD that is a must-have for fans of ambient, synth, and space music.
Alpha Wave Movement’s CDs explore classic synth music genres, but make them sound fresh and new, and Drifted Into Deeper Lands is no exception. It is exciting to think that Alpha Wave Movement has the potential to become the next Steve Roach or Michael Stearns. With this album, Alpha Wave Movement does an amazing job of using sound language to convey a truth indescribable in words. Here he gets some help from Jeff Pearce on guitar.

Alpha Wave Movement - Earthen

Artist: Alpha Wave Movement
P: 2015
LTD 100
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.

Alpha Wave Movement - Exiled Particles Volume 1

Artist: Alpha Wave Movement
P: 2012
Music recorded from 1997 to 2005 that never found an enlightened path to a actual physical release. Most of the compositions can be compared to early trance electronica. Effort has been not to mimic that genre per se but rather use the style as a compass. There are also two ambient tracks from the archive to complete the release on gentle notes.

Alpha Wave Movement - Harmonic Currents

Artist: Alpha Wave Movement
P: 2015
A harmonious two track release primarily created in silent reflection that is 90% live and in the moment. All music was conceived on a very minimal arrangement of electronics mainly one analog and two digital PCM synthesizers with little to no use of a computer except for the final recording stage. Drawn on my travels to the coastlines of Southern Oregon and Northern California. The immense beauty and tranquility of the surf and splendor the terrain became a channeled experience for the eventual genesis of this release. "Inspired by the hypnagogic lure of the vast ocean. A two composition ode to the muse of the liquid cosmos of deep enigmatic allure. A crystalline molecular matrix of electronic sound and gossamer timbral aesthetics. A subtle quietude of articulation that oscillates within the harmonic currents."

Alpha Wave Movement - Horizons

Artist: Alpha Wave Movement
P: 2014
What strikes the most as soon as we hear the first measures of “Horizons” is this rich and very textural musical envelope which wraps an electronic cosmic rock whose fragrances and interstellar sound effects bring it to another level. The ethereal, almost esoteric signature, which characterizes Gregory T. Kyryluk's EM remains very present. Except that “Horizons” is distancing itself in his discography with an architectural envelope which is veneered of heaviness. There is a very melancholic, sometimes somber, presence which comes from his synths and of their airs a bit jazzy which float on rhythms in constant movements. Heavier and lively than Archaic Frontiers, “Horizons” reveals 5 energetic compositions, "Shanti" being very meditative, with a massive use of electronic percussions which hammer some lively rhythms or which are timing the hypnotic tic-tac of metronomes of which the fusion heaviness/slowness is charmingly taken away by clouds of Mellotron with violin harmonies.
And it begins with "Horizon" and its trembling manual percussions which tickle the caresses of the romantic violins. And the rhythm takes off. He is heavy and ambient, like a big symphonic e-rock. Pulled by good percussions and lit by sequences which sparkle such as bright wings of butterfly, it crawls slyly beneath vampiric synth waves. Waves to two tones which reveal superb orchestrations, while "Horizon" gathers like a bee brief moments of ambiences, among which a beautiful reverie on piano. And at each time this rhythm, which sleeps shortly and snores of impatience, bursts with more and more dense philharmonic envelopes and a delicate technoïd approach which collapses under the heaviness of its structure. Navigating through its slow rhythms, always well hammered by good percussions, and its ethereal ambiences, "Traveller" finally sails between a cosmic electronic universe and an approach little bit funky with synth solos to the fragrances a tiny bit jazzy. Its intro is filled up by cosmic tones and violin strata which float in an intersidereal Eden, while the harmonies are rocking on delicate tablas kind of percussions, which are very present in these first moments of “Horizons”. The cosmic effects a la
Jarre abound, we even hear these percussions which click as some metallic wood, on this track which mixes pleasantly rhythms and moods with an approach as cosmic than very human. Always covered of dense cosmico-orchestral embraces, "Impressions" offers a delicate melody which hums of its charming airs on a slightly hopping rhythm. Catchy, the track evolves with a subtle crescendo, both in the tone and in its outcome, and with a small touch of complexity which takes out the sweet ethereal approach of its comfortable cosmic bed. A little as "Traveller", "Starbound" offers a structure in movement but with a clearly more voracious rhythm. A soft ghostly melody hums on a tempo puts on the beat right away by a hypnotic metronome and which is excited by percussions making noise with hyperactive sequences. Sequences which bubble in a static, sometimes stroboscopic, magma and which drag the rhythm at a more agitated level, while that very electronic solos, as lyrical as twisted, overhang a rhythm whose swiftness hangs onto a flight of very lively percussions. A brief ambient passage, very colored, cuts the legs to this rhythm which takes back its life under superb solos of a multidimensional synth. This is very good. I imagine that it is what Jean Michel Jarre would have made before falling in his metamorphosis phase. Oh... this "Shanti" is beautiful and restful. I hear here these airs of forsaken trumpets and saxophone forgotten in the rain of Blade Runner. And Alpha Wave Movement can't avoid the comparisons with Steve Roach or nor of the Californian Desert School, because "Remnant" plunges us there downright. The rhythm forges a spheroidal kind of walking where we constantly have the impression to climb the staircases in spirals of a mountain without top. This is visibly inspired by these ambient ballads of the Californian deserts with sequences, a bit organic, which quaver in stroboscopic hiccups, splitting an attractive approach as much hypnotic than ethereal and whose fragility rests on a sound decoration painted by synths to the  harmonies and atmospheres divinatory.
From album to album,
Alpha Wave Movement never disappoints. Gregory Kyryluk masters the art of renewed himself without denying his roots. “Horizons” explodes of an unsuspected vigour. A sound dynamism where the rhythms set ablaze these completely unusual avenues to the Alpha Wave Movement's repertoire, who manages all the same to preserve a meditative cachet which stands out even more in this album which will seduce, both by the tone of the synths than the diversity of its rhythms. Guaranteed!

Alpha Wave Movement - Kinetic

Artist: Alpha Wave Movement
P: 2016
The album begins with the title track and if I didn't know better I'd easily be fooled into believing that it's a Tangerine Dream track from the 80's. Gregory has perfected the sound to a tee from the lush synths and sequences and not forgetting the all-important guitar. Moving on 'Dark Meridan' combines choral voices and a stabbing bass-line with harmonious keys creating a dream like atmosphere that also seems to nod back to yesteryear reminding me somewhat of the Yellow Magic Orchestra. Whilst 'Machine Mambo' combines atmospheric synths and digital rhythms with a slight eastern tinge.The vintage vibe continues with 'D.E.I. (Direct Emotional Interface) once again reminiscent of TD or Klaus Schulze both in the elongated beat-less intro and when the slow paced electronic beat kicks in. I'm finding elements of Kraftwerk and YMO with a sprinkling of Ozric's in 'Anoraxis' whereas 'Synergistic Highway' begins in a more foreboding manner the light soon shines through in a similar fashion.Atmospheric thunder leads us into a more dubby affair with a slightly Parisian like feel on 'Ecoutez' and finally to close the proceedings 'Metronomy' runs looping sequences with deep synths settling somewhere between Ozrics and Pink Floyd. Overall this is a really solid album from Alpha Wave Movement that truly reflects the synthesized music of yesteryear in a glorious fashion. A fashion that pays homage and doesn't fail in the quality of the tracks in the slightest.

Alpha Wave Movement - Myriad Stars

Artist: Alpha Wave Movement
P: 2011
"Myriad Stars" is a brand new album by Gregory Kyryluk, the sole creator of Alpha Wave Movement, released in September 2011 on his own Harmonic Resonance Recordings label. The album fires with deeply drifting "Beacon 1" graciously opening the gates to this joyous intergalactic space odyssey. Spiced with pulsing mid-paced effects it creates warmly inviting atmosphere. Celestial washes open "The Dark Lure", colored with futuristic sonics, this piece quickly transfers into more melodious plateau, gently pulsing and rhythmed electronics with own, trademarking AWM sound sculpting. Well done, Greg! "Beacon 2" utilizes absolutely charming melodies, perfectly balanced with grandeur drifts. Yes, this is AWM at his most sophisticated craft exploring the depth of extraterrestrial realms! Then follow two parts of "Gravity Well Flux", with the first one being rather more deeper and mysterious, while the second part is progressing into active texture in shimmering Berlin School EM fashion, simultaneously atmospheric and driving. "Beacon 3" incorporates hauntingly dreamy airwaves with semi-melodic elements and angelic choir-like sounds, a true celestial beauty in my ears! "Anatomical Universe" is attractively painted with free floating stratospheric ambience and later joined by ear-catching kinetic rhythms, undoubtedly the most moving composition on this trip, again with skillfully bridged dreamy atmospheres and pulsing melodies. "Singularities" drifts into deeper space enriched ocassionally by various bubling cybernetics and processed heavenly choirs, later semi-melodious patterns are added, definitely a true masterpiece!!! Over 14 minutes long "Star Birth" remains in the deeper and vast territories with its warmly aerial and absorbing skyscapes with fragile sonic gurgles, later invaded by sharper, crystal clear space melodies. Another highly elegant and magnetizing sculpting! "73 74 61 72" is the closing composition enriched with space rumblings, hisses, gurgles..., rather intense and sonorous, more experimental texture, colored also by various processed radio transmissions, adventurous outro! "Myriad Stars" by Alpha Wave Movement is another fine space/ambient album demonstrating potential, craft and musicality of Gregory Kyryluk, it's highly recommended sonic journey to look deeper into the vast expanse of the universe.

Alpha Wave Movement - Soniq Variants

Artist: Alpha Wave Movement
P: 2011
Ambient music composed on and inspired by Ensoniq synthesizers.
The album opens effectively with 10-minute piece "Sundial West", nicely spiraling sequences with aerial hypnotic textures, wonderful! And the next one, "Eternal Panorama", gets even more relaxing with its elegant rhythmic elements, plus stunning percussive ingredients, a pure sonic vista! "Transwave Oscillations" starts quite monumentally, but the tension is relieved very soon by some smooth, clean and refined downtempos. The album turns into slower emotional compositions with "Sustained Environment" and "Sweeping The Soniq Spectrum", but this one moves soon to much more lively textures. "Dynamic Atmosphere" belongs to slower floaters with slowly evolving and swirling dynamics, another exactly fitting track name. Greg seems to be very strong in this one too. "Wave Gliding" keeps the path and "Contours & Cloudforms" closes this elegantly sculpted ride with all its majesty and tranquillity.

Mission "Ensoniq", blending electronic rhythms and soundscaping, has been successfully completed and "Soniq Variants" is highly recommended to all AWM fans. And if you are a new to AWM soundworlds, don't hesitate too.
