Alpha Wave Movement is Gregory T. Kyryluk. His music offers ambient electronic
excursions into deep space using seductive sound design.
As a child, Gregory was drawn to his family's cheap electric organ that allowed him to play chords using buttons with his left hand while his right hand played melodies on a keyboard. As an adult, Jazz Fusion and Progressive Rock opened his ears to structure. While mostly self taught, he took a few courses in college in including jazz performance where he played electric bass.
Music by John Williams, Jean Michel Jarre, Kitaro, and early new age music inspired Gregory to explore synthesizers and the concept of making music without the dependency of having a band. As an artist and adamant music listener, he focuses on the freedom and exploratory nature of music.
The first official Alpha Wave Movement music available on CD appeared in the early 1990s on the Silent Records "From Here to Tranquility" series. As Open Canvas and Anodize, Gregory released music on Groove Unlimited when it was called Cue Records. The remainder of his releases have been released on his own Harmonic Resonance Recordings label.

with both cutting edge technology and classical idioms, his music has
a very unique and contemporary style. Paul has been in great demand since
composing his first television score in 1998 for the BBC series Ancient
Voices. Other commissions include the major BBC series Apeman-Adventures
in Human Evolution and Ancient Apocalypse. Paul's music has been used on
hundreds of Television shows from around the world including Saturday Night

VoLt is an electronic music duo from the UK consisting of Michael
Shipway and Steve Smith. Originally in a Pop/Rock band called Hi-Fi,
their interest in sampling and synthesized sound led them to form
Artificial Intelligence. These bands were based upon composed
After composing three solo electronic albums on the Surreal to Real label and striving to write a fourth, it occurred to Michael that he and Steve had never tried to play music live and spontaneous with no prior arranging. Everything had always been carefully prepared, recorded, and edited to achieve the required result. Both Mike and Steve agreed it would be a good idea to try some sessions playing live in the studio with no pre-planned ideas except for some programmed sequencers. "The Far Canal" was recorded in three sessions and VoLt came into being.
