Alpha Wave Movement "Soniq Variants" CDr

After mini album "Cosmic Mandala", released one year ago, respected US ambient musician, Gregory Kyryluk, returns with long awaited full length album "Soniq Variants". Yes, I am one of those who have been waiting very curiously for Greg's new long-player. "Soniq Variants" is based and realized on Ensoniq synthesizers, their most famous models were made during the late 80's and early 90's. I am sure Greg is going to handle this concept more than efficiently, because he was always very strong and crafted at composing, it continues throughout his long body of work since the very beginning with unforgettable debut "Transcendence". The album opens effectively with 10-minute piece "Sundial West", nicely spiraling sequences with aerial hypnotic textures, wonderful! And the next one, "Eternal Panorama", gets even more relaxing with its elegant rhythmic elements, plus stunning percussive ingredients, a pure sonic vista! "Transwave Oscillations" starts quite monumentally, but the tension is relieved very soon by some smooth, clean and refined downtempos. The album turns into slower emotional compositions with "Sustained Environment" and "Sweeping The Soniq Spectrum", but this one moves soon to much more lively textures. "Dynamic Atmosphere" belongs to slower floaters with slowly evolving and swirling dynamics, another exactly fitting track name. Greg seems to be very strong in this one too. "Wave Gliding" keeps the path and "Contours & Cloudforms" closes this elegantly sculpted ride with all its majesty and tranquillity. Mission "Ensoniq", blending electronic rhythms and soundscaping, has been successfully completed and "Soniq Variants" is highly recommended to all AWM fans. And if you are a new to AWM soundworlds, don't hesitate too!!!
