ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
The music of "Drifted Into Deeper Lands" was inspired by Gregory’s dreams and journeys into the Great Southwestern deserts of Arizona and New Mexico.

It contains more extended tracks compared to his previous work, dwelling in a slightly Steve Roach-like ambient style. It is free form soundscape music with occasional use of percussion, creating a beautiful tranquil, introspective feel which shines through all pieces.

Ambient guitarist Jeff Pearce joins Gregory on two tracks of the album. This desert immersion is created with quite an original range of sounds which I think no ambient fan should miss.

Like "Transcendence", this album was also re-released on Gregory’s own Harmonic Resonance label, for which he included the bonus track "Canyon Clouds".

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

The next time someone tells you to chill, do so with Alpha Wave Movement. The man behind the name is Greg Kyryluk, and based in New England, is doing some exciting things for the ambient genre. With several releases to his credit, including music performed as Open Canvas, Kyryluk has carved an impressive niche for himself in the ever-expanding stable of artists producing ambient music today.

There are only six tracks on Drifted Into Deeper Lands and each is a wonderful and varied example of what ambient music is all about. The lengthy opener and title track is truly the showcase piece here, and progresses naturally from a spacey soundscape to a gently pulsing rhythm that is both exciting and relaxing at the same time. It is this sort of duality that makes this album so interesting to listen to.

Guitarist Jeff Pearce makes an appearance on "Awakening the Sand Spirits" and "Another Time...Another Place", and his special flavor of playing is a great contrast to Kyryluk's sonic backgrounds. "Another Time...Another Place" strikes me as almost tribal in its presentation, and the percussion (assumed to be electronic) found here does much to enhance that imagery.

"Suspended in the Hanging Gardens" closes the album, and the title of his track should be enough to tell you what to expect. This is a slow and drifting piece of ambient that capitalizes on its subtlety and grace to bring an appropriate ending to an album of this caliber and style. It is exciting to think that Alpha Wave Movement has the potential to become the next Steve Roach or Michael Stearns. I am extremely impressed with Greg Kyryluk, and I am certain you will be too. Here's hoping that more of his particular blend of atmospheric ambience is just around the corner.
