ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Myriad Stars is a further venture into the realms of the mysterious cosmos thru the medium of electronic music. Composed only on hardware synthesizers with the additional use of telemetry signals and pulsating timbres of auroras, pulsars and other cosmic waves.

Myriad Stars welcomes the vastness of the stellar constellations and the introspective curiosities the peak musical compositions.

The music here is a continuum of past Alpha Wave Movement cds such as "A Distant Signal" and "The Edge of Infinity".

With focus on a "feel" of deep space, floating in an endless vacuum of timeless space thru the use of synthesizers, sequencers and sampling drawing on inspirational images from the Hubble and various ground based stellar observatories. The music is not dark and drone in subject but bestowed with timbral and rhythmic colors to represent the dynamic beauty of the heavens he admire in the night skies.

REVIEWS:

"Myriad Stars" is 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!!!

As is characteristic of all of AWM's music, the unique sonic perspectives found on "Myriad Stars" is no exception; lustrous & luxurious at the same time, the tracks work so well precisely because AWM refuses to be categorized. Kyryluk's muse is well informed by Euro EM, both of the 'space' & 'berlin school' variety, but never sits comfortably in either. "Myriad Stars" utilizes 'rhythms' that are simultaneously machinic *and* organic, tribalisms beating in digital time rather than around ancient campfires. The music indeed conjures deep space eddies and alien cosmologies but miraculously strays so far from clichéd synth sounds as to exist beyond them; such is the extent of Kyryluk's keen touch & imagination when manning the controls. Ignore the grand solar flares of "Myriad Stars" at your own peril.

Darren Bergstein, One Thousand Pulses

With "Myriad Stars", Gregory Kyryluk aka Alpha Wave Movement brings us a nice and colourful addition to his existing catalogue of space music, and especially his album "A Distant Signal".

These are ten tracks of atmospheric spaciousness opening a doorway to an expansive, cosmic environment, very nicely "spiced" with sequencer patterns and smooth rhythms. Gregory’s music smoothly paints beautiful farscapes in the mystic realm of the galaxy, sometimes almost symphonic, then gentle and in a more floating manner.

All in all, the outcome of "Myriad Stars", is a nice sonic metaphor for AWM’s motto: synthesizing serenity and motion. Most certainly recommended.
