ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
The Regions Between is a compilation of tracks spanning the last 7 years. These tracks are all unreleased. For fans of vintage Kitaro, Manual Gottsching's Ashra and celestial ambient music. Classic New Age / Electronica fans take note there are two original homage pieces on this disc you might enjoy quite a bit.

+++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

Gregory Kyryluk, aka Alpha Wave Movement, also started digging his back catalogue, of which this disc is the nice outcome.

"The Regions Between" is a 48-minute compilation album, containing unreleased tracks 2001-2006. In addition, Gregory has included some liner notes on all tracks in the booklet.

The cd nicely kicks off with the drifting textures "From the Ether" (which at the end sounds part of a longer track that never happened), before the sequenced, warm space realms of "Solar Dub" with nice vintage elements introduce itself.

"Desert Light" (of Gregory feels it should have been on his album "Drifted into Deeper lands") starts out with soft soundscapes, shortly followed by a nice sequence/rhythm with a swirling solo on top.

"Sun Tempel" slows down again, walking the space avenue with warm textures and a nice lush solo-voice. "Nucleogenesis" also dwells in light space regions with its vast soundscapes and a good dash of TD-kindred sequencing.

From the highly cinematic freeform lingerings of "Rubicon", things further improve as we start moving deeper and deeper into cosmic, slightly Jonn Serrie like territory. This would go very well with a planetarium show.

This engaging planetarium feel continues on the next tracks, in which nice vintage sequencing, analogue sounds and rhythms move forward in a gentle manner, nicely coming to a close with the laidback soundings of the Kitaro-like "Methamorphic Dawn".

All in all, "The Regions Between" is a worthy addition to any ambient/space music collection.
Nice going, Gregory!

It wouldn’t be accurate to call this an album of out-takes. Its more a case of some genuinely good unreleased tracks that didn’t quite fit the albums Gregory Kyrluk aka Alpha Wave Movement was recording at the time. That period is 2001-2006, by which time this American composer was already well established as one of the most gifted and sensitive exponents of electronic spacemusic in the old-school style. As an album it’s not entirely cohesive and I’m guessing it’s not supposed to be. What it does show is the composer’s deft hand at different styles of spacey electronic ambience: the melodic celestial throb of the Berlin-school, the romanticism of Vangelis, drifting environmental soundscapes with a cosmic air. Even when Kyrluk steps beyond expected rhythm patterns on the deeply gorgeous "Solar Dub" the gliding synth below and sparkling arpeggio above make the track unmistakably his own. All up this a varied and engaging collection which avoids the spacemusic-lite that marred parts of its predecessor Beyond Silence (2005). A must for longtime fans and a decent intro for newbies

For those of you who are not already familiar with Alpha Wave Movement let me introduce you. AWM is Gregory Kyryluk who hails from Massachusetts and whom I first became aware of when he was recording as Open Canvas on the Waveform label. He recorded two releases for Waveform entitled Nomadic Impressions and Indumani both of which impressed me with Gregory’s abilities and his musical talents. Gregory continues to release great music under his new name of Alpha Wave Movement and The Regions Between CD is no exception.

The Regions Between is not new music that has just been composed and released this year but it is some great unreleased music that was recorded between 2001-2006 which Gregory decided to dust off and share with us on this CD. Although the music is rather diverse and covers multiple themes via the 8 tracks on this CD it is still an enjoyable trip and well worth taking. From the Ether kicks off this collection and was originally recorded back in 2004 as an introduction to a larger piece of music. From the Ether is a rather spacey sounding cut that does sound like it was leading up to something but does work rather well as a stand alone track too. Gregory uses the music to good effect as it drifts along using sparse instrumentation and some nice synth effects that fade into and out of the spotlight. The central keyboards occupy the main portion of the music which gives the song a nice open feel and as the synth effects fade into and out of the background it sounds like the wind blowing occasionally through the song.

The Regions Between does offer the listener a diverse group of styles in regards to the music they will find here and track 2 which is called Nucleogenesis emphasizes this as it starts off with a nice little keyboard piece before moving into the heart of what makes this second track start to move ahead. The music has essentially a duel nature to it with the space music and otherworldly synths continuing but they share space with a pulsating sequencer that brings the whole song to life but doesn’t overpower the beautiful feeling of airiness that permeates the song as a whole. Solar Dub which is the next track on the CD is a very enjoyable piece of music that is very lighthearted with a great laid back groove and a catchy hook that keeps you bouncing and tapping your foot as you progress through the song.. Again this just goes to show that AWM is capable of quite a bit of diversity in his music and this collection of unreleased tunes should send you out looking for some of Gregory’s earlier works to see what else he has been up to.

The last track that I want to mention is the song called Distant Nebula and as the title suggests this is a song that will take you wandering around the cosmos with expansive soundscapes that really do justice to the song’s title. There are some great sounds wandering around the soundscape that add character to the piece and gives you something to look at as the stars go drifting by. The song clocks in at 10 minutes so it gives Gregory ample time to develop the musical textures along this journey and to dazzle you with some great snyth washes along the way. The song does not stop there as a subtle undercurrent of a pulsing beat is added in around the 7 minute mark that takes the listener in a slightly different direction but still maintains the feel of the song as a whole. The synths and the effects continue to play out in the background while the listener is treated to the rhythms as yet another point of focus during this very pleasant trip.
All in all The Regions Between is a collection of songs from AWM that covers a period of 5 years but listening to them collected here they all seem to belong together on this CD. The music is well produced and the songs even though some of them may have been outtakes or tracks not used from other projects don’t have the feel of songs that should have been abandoned or never revisited. It is apparent that Gregory has spent time with this music and by knowing his material so well he knew which songs, even though they weren’t used at the time, were still powerful pieces of music in and of themselves. This release just goes to show that even the music that didn’t get used is still great music. It also points to the fact that if the music that didn’t get used is this great then how much better is the material that did get used the first time through. Just a little something to think about there.
AV recommended CD.

A collection of unreleased tracks from 2001-2006, this CD flows rather nicely, showcasing the easygoing space music style that Gregory Kyryluk has established over the past several years. From the Ether is a delicate atmospheric number that forms a gentle introduction. Nucleogenesis flows just as smoothly with some light bass sequencing. Solar Dub is dub lite, but I dont mean that badly at all, a bubbly bright piece. Rubicon takes things down a notch, quite laid back planetarium music. Desert Light is perfectly titled, and as Gregory himself mentions it would have fit well on Drifted Into Deeper Lands. Distant Nebula is the mellowest and perhaps most satisfying yet, a 10-minute expansive space journey with cool sequencing later on. The last two tracks show Kyryluk's breadth, tributes to Ashra and Kitaro, respectively. Both work quite well, the latter providing a dreamy ending to another very good Alpha Wave Movement disc.

Alpha Wave Movement is the brainchild of Gregory Kyryluk from Massachusetts. The CD contains 8 ambient space excursions in 47 minutes. IT has a really great and spacey sound. Nucleogenesis has a bit of a darker sound to it but still very much out in deep space with lush synthesizer sweeps and spacey wind. Solar Dub and Rubicon are much more new age like and he plays a very nice synth solo in Rubicon. Desert Light is back into space again… Distant Nebula is the longest track at almost 10 minutes and it builds really slowly as more and more sounds are layered in. Nice track. Metamorphic Dawn is really soundtrack music of some sort, very spacey, a bit romatic or something… Great sound on this CD of space music… I almost forgot to say, the liner notes tell you something about what inspired each track and in some cases what synths were used etc..

Review by Scott Heller, Aural Innovations

+++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

One of the benefits of the DIY mindset endemic to the ambient/electronic genre is that at any given moment an artist can reach into their back catalog, pull out older or unreleased material, fire it up on the computer, enhance it or clean it up or, in some cases, finish it in the first place, and release the results in a new package. Such is the case with the latest offering from Alpha Wave Movement, The Regions Between. AWM (aka Greg Kyryluk) has gathered work from 2001-2006 into an enjoyable suite of sequencer-motivated spacemusic with just the right amount of beat and funk. Kyryluk has dug up some lovely gems this time out. “Nucleogenesis” takes off like a Tangerine Dream homage propelled by solid-fuel sequencer work. “Rubicon” moves in on a slow, repurposed 70’s R&B love-song-inspired groove before picking up a bit of flavor from spacey sequencer trills and some chunky bass. “Desert Light” continues the low-and-slow feel through a short-but-calming journey. The highlight here comes with “Distant Nebula,” 10 minutes of signature AWM deep-space drifts blended with a wealth of ear candy and subtle beats. These are always welcome journeys when you’re riding with AWM, full of aural imagery and atmosphere. Things get organic with the closer, “Metamorphic Dawn,” where hand drums usher in angelic chords touched with rumbling bass tones and a sense of unassisted flight.

I very much like that Kyryluk has taken the time to offer some liner notes on Regions... It’s interesting to get the artist’s perspective on what he’s dusted off, what the inspiration was and, in many cases, what equipment was in the mix. All in all, a very good offering from Alpha Wave Movement and a superb addition to his catalog.

wonderfull melodic electronic space music
This release from Kyryluk contains unreleased material from the period between 2001-2006.
He is definitively one of the most imaginative composer of electronic music out there and this is one of his finest moments.
From the mind of this gifted artist comes beautifully crafted soundscapes that takes you beyond this world.
This is perfect music to listen to when sitting on the porch late night hour gazing at the stars in the night sky...A highly enjoyable cd and a must buy.
