ALPHA WAVE MOVEMENT
Alpha Wave Movement (established 1992 in Miami, Florida) is the electronic music project of Gregory T. Kyryluk. Alpha Wave Movement's musical style can be considered ambient, new-age, some space rock, the classic 1970s period German style electronic music otherwise known as Berlin school as well as the ambient aesthetics of Brian Eno, and Steve Roach. Releases such A Distant Signal and Terra have more ambient space elements than other Alpha Wave Movement releases. Beyond Silence has more space rock elements and has a more rhythmic feel in their overall music compositions. In 2007 Alpha Wave Movement released The Mystic & The Machine, a musical exploration of 1970's era romantic progressive rock performed on synthesizers with the addition of UK musician Steve Hillman on electric guitar. The influences of Genesis, Ozric Tentacles (1980s era), and Camel are quite obvious and intended and shows yet another side of Alpha Wave Movement's composition. Alpha Wave Movement's music is semi electronic-based, utilizing digital synthesizers and MIDI to create its sonic explorations. Aside from the music influences nature and natural landscapes are a continuous source of inspiration for compositions. Alpha Wave Movement has performed at the Ambient Ping Canada and at the Gathering Room USA. Alpha Wave Movement has released music on the Dutch label Groove Unlimited, Silent Records (USA), Waveform Records (USA), Spiralight (USA), Anodize (USA)and on the private label Harmonic Resonance Recordings. Alpha Wave Movement's other projects include Thought Guild (vintage synthesizer improvisation project with synthesist Christopher Cameron), Open Canvas, Subtle Shift, Biome and a solo release as Gregory Kyryluk. The latest release from Alpha Wave Movement is entitled "Soniq Variants"(2011).
The release is based conceptually on the use of Ensoniq synthesizers solely for the compositions. Ensoniq was an American manufacturer that spearheaded early affordable synthesizer workstation's the first of which was the ESQ-1 in 1986. Music on this release was composed primarily on the ESQ-1, VFX-SD, SQ-R and a DP4 all of which were made by Ensoniq. Additional use of a Novation synthesizer was also incorporated to add some timbral texture. The year 2012 arrived with a new electronic music project by Gregory Kyryluk under the alias of Subtle Shift(early releases where under the alias of Within Reason). This new project dives head into the ambient dub waterways. Featuring a more sublime percussive foundation, environmental soundscapes. Drawn on the influences of the Detroit and European creative pioneering spirits such as Rod Modell and Yagya, GAS as well as incorporating 1970s electro aesthetics. To date there are four full length releases by Subtle Shift on the Anodize and Harmonic Resonance Recording labels. In 2014 the electronica world fusion project Open Canvas(essentially Gregory Kyryluk) had a track from the Waveform Records release "Indumani" featured in the internationally popular gothic horror show True Blood. The Open Canvas track "Ojopati" was featured in the final season episode 3.
Greg Kyryluk is the creator of musical project Alpha Wave Movement (established 1992 in
Miami, Florida) an alias onto which he creates an amalgam of contemporary electronic
instrumental music. Drawing from the wellspring influences of 1970's space rock, euro centric
electronica and ambient music to create his own aesthetic mode of expressionism with a focus on
emotion and melodic rendezvous.
Alpha Wave Movement along his eastern electronica tinged side project Open Canvas has
released music on the Groove Unlimited, Silent Records, Waveform, Spiralight, Anodize and
Harmonic Resonance Recordings labels. Music from both projects have been featured in the
famous Grand Theft Auto IV video game and the popular HBO series True Blood as well as
having been featuring on one of the nations oldest contemporary instrumental music shows
Hearts of Space.
Greg Kyryluk's latest venture ambient dub project Subtle Shift focuses on introspective
environmentally infused atmospheres interwoven with underlying dub laden synth baselines and
downtempo rooted rhythmic harmony. A facet of exploration into new music territories is still the
fundamental point of convergence for all of his music production.

A collaborative of a two musicians in an improvised setting. Thought Guild came about when Christopher Cameron and Gregory Kyryluk(aka Alpha Wave Movement) started discussing their interest in 1970s and 80s electronic and new age music(Kitaro/Ashra/Popul Vuh/Tagerine Dream +).
Most of the projects output was stem celled from a core of late night jam sessions where the setting involved the kind dusting off some of Cameron's prized analog synth gear, channeling our evening creative muses and finally improvising direct to disc(usually a CDR recorder or Protools). Thought Guild was nothing more than two guys getting together and making music off the cuff so the end result was slightly less polished raw with energy and "eclectic" artistic embellishments embedded in digitalia. The project was never meant to be a steady gig and music was recorded at the proverbial the spur of the moment riding the wave of synthetic inspiration. We played a scant few gigs but never toured.
Three full length releases and one collection of live and rare studio demos compromises the entire catalog of Thought Guild's improvised musical opuses. Thought Guild is now a defunct legacy project as of the 2011 passing of Christopher Cameron. The music will be continued to be made available to those interested in Thought Guild.
