A Produce + M Griffin - Altara

Artist: A Produce + M Griffin
P: 1999

Mike ("M") Griffin is the founder of Hypnos records, as well as one-half of the electronic duo Viridian Sun (e.g., Perihelion,Solar Noise). He describes himself as "a visual artist and writer who inexplicably came under the spell of the notion he should record the noises he makes with electronic instruments and tape machines."
For this album, Griffin teamed up with LA-centered Trance composer/artist "A Produce" (Barry Craig) to produce this album over an 18-month period and release it in 1999. (Both had gone several years without releasing a full-length album.) Interestingly, neither artist met each other face-to-face during the recording process.
The album begins with four shorter pieces, and concludes with a 36-minute track, "You Send Me the Message." The album is ambient, minimalist, droning, slowly-evolving, spacious, and excellent.

A Produce - Inscape + Landscape

Artist: A Produce
P: 1996

An excursion into dreamy, rhythmic modern day trance music.
Inspired by the book, "Inscape & Landscape" written by Pierre Dansereau in 1975.
In tri-fold letterpress discfolio; booklet has a vellum cover.
"Music that makes great impact on the senses and has visionary content: the new A Produce could not be better! The exploration of altered state of consciousness (the inscapes) is profound and complete, contrasting with the excursions into the real world (the landscapes), which has always been the artistic philosophy of this California musician and which here reaches an extremely high level of expressiveness. Musically, the contrasted realities - interior and exterior landscapes - are fused into a material that is under constant evolution, a magical osmosis that puts different states of mind into music. The cavernous "Dwell," with its synthetic bell tones, certainly is a dark and suspended inscape. "Inscape & Landscape" frees the mind with glassy sounds and the dynamics of metallic pulsations. "Sea of Breath," a tiny jewel of sound, carries us "inside" with the power of electronic sound, continuous waves of light and darkness generated by the keyboard. Another inscape - this time melancholy gets the upper hand - arrives with the slow and unforgettable melody of "The Mystic Circle," which seems the distillation of a long-ago encounter intensely relived in memory. Then the drum-skins return to vibrate in "First Glimpse" and "The Hidden Observer," and it is time to return to the voyage, in mind and body, toward new states, towards renewal. Without any special sound research and without recourse to more exotic instrumentation, up to this point A Produce has managed to give voice to the heart and food of the mind, to give images to whomever is listening. The mood once again turns dark and static with the timeless drones of "Isua," one of the most beautiful tracks, into which are inserted the piercing sounds of an extremely acidic guitar and disquieting percussion effects. And the electric guitar once again takes the lead in "The Golden Needle," an atypical and very beautiful piece that brings A Produce into virgin territory. The finale is a crescendo, with the beautiful "Choir of Industry," a mixture of every kind of sound from new music, from synthetic voices to electronic soarings, from industrial beats to reverberating surroundings, with a sense of space that is truly immense (thanks to Robert Rich's mixing?). "Empty Pause" is still more abstract, with artfully confused sounds in the stereo panorama coming from the magic strings of Chas Smith. The definitive version of "Dwell," at sixteen minutes in its bell study, takes up the oppressive discourse of Rich/Lustmord's "Stalker" and concludes the voyage of what is the most complete sound experiences that can be achieved at this time. Use your repeat button, disconnect the telephone and your contact with the world, and let the biology of these sounds become your biology: you will find yourself in trance. Magnificent."

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 - 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.

Alquimia + Roedelius - Voces de mi Tierra

Artist: Alquimia + Roedelius
P: 1999
Here the CD-single Version.
This album is the meeting between Hans-Joachim Roedelius, German pioneer of the electronic avant garde, and Alquimia, a versatile Mexican artist who has explored the possibilities of synthesizers as well as those of her voice in various innovative projects.
This unusual collaboration between them both has resulted in a likewise remarkable CD. There are melodic passages of a great emotional strength, which could be defined as a fusion of Atmospheric Pop and World Music. And among them both, others of a mysterious, even dreary character coexist, with a slow development and a structure ranging from Ambient to mystic ritual music.
Alquimia's voice, which she herself processes electronically in various ways, turns out to be unearthly at times, and very much earthly in other occasions, perfectly fitting with the electronic textures and exotic atmospheres.

Andreas Leifeld - Discoveries

Artist: Andreas Leifeld
P: 1991
Futuristic in conception and execution, this album still harkens back to the sequencer-driven sound of the German electronic school. Yet unlike Tangerine Dream, Leifeld has managed to add rock and pop influences without losing his progressive edge. His two-part suite "African Dreams" delves into the techno-tribal realm. He also adds some amusing political cynicism on the final selection, "Same Old Game," by layering recorded voice fragments of George Bush's most banal catchphrases over combat sounds and a brooding, almost sinister electronic score.
