Thought Guild

Real Name:
Gregory T. Kyryluk & Christopher Cameron
Profile:
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 +).

Most of the projects output was stem celled from a core of late night jam sessions where the setting involved dusting off some of Cameron's prized analog synth gear, channeling the creative muses and improvising direct to disc. 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. 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.

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 project as of the 2011 passing of Christopher Cameron. The music as they say shall live on.....

Thought Guild was the duo of musician/composer Gregory Kyryluk(Alpha Wave Movement/Open Canvas) and synthesist Christopher Cameron. The focus from the genesis of the project was recording syntheszier based music in an open improvised setting direct to recording medium. Christopher Cameron an avid collector of vintage 1970-80s synthesizers curated the vintage aesthetics to the project.

Thought Guild released 2 recordings 2001's "Context" and 2005's "Continuum". Both releases where very personal and featured that 1970s era sounds ingrained & sculpted with the influences of Tangerine Dream, Klaus Schulze, Ashra, Popul Vuh and Steve Roach. Fans of the good old analog days of electronic music would be sure to take pleasure in the usage of vintage synthesizers in the music.

With the recent unfortunate passing of Christopher Cameron, unreleased recordings have been unearthed from the digital vaults and will be released in the near future with the addition of very early unreleased material from a never before released album of Cameron's.
