I am very proud to finally be able to announce that Light Clouds has been released. This is an Ambient compilation featuring 11 tracks from 10 artists who give us their take on Ambient. A lot of styles from Space Ambient to Drone and Piano music. This release in one form or another has been in the works almost as long as Cold Fiction Music as been around.
19 April: Chez Mosc, the weekly internet concert featuring Twyndyllyngs, will be at its usual 6 pm eastern timezone. Since the USA is already on Daylight Saving Time, that's GMT-4 **NOT GMT-5** and may be an hour earlier than you normally expect, depending upon where you live.
Thought Radio Radio Playlist for April 19, 2014.
In Phase 1, I continued the special on Sequences electronic music magazine. I played music from the 30th Anniversary remastered "Structures from Silence" by Steve Roach as well as music from AirSculpture who will be playing at the Asheville electro-music festival on March 16 and on March 17 at the Gatherings Concert Series in Philadelphia. In Phase 3, I featured music by Beardfish who will play at the NJ Proghouse on May 5. Also playing at NJP will be Elephants of Scotland.
Gregory Kyryluk of Alpha Wave Movement is always busy and effectively productive, no matter if with his main AWM project or with his Within Reason offshoot. After 5 releases during 2013 (two as AWM, two as Within Reason and one with Thought Guild), February 2014 brings newest album "Celestial Chronicles" by Alpha Wave Movement on Greg's own Harmonic Resonance Recordings. Catchy images (by Greg) and album title give us an idea of upcoming, highly fascinating stargazing odyssey. Alpha Wave Movement's "Myriad Stars" from 2011 still resonates and that's definitely enough reasons to stay alert!!!
"Ancestral Star Chart" reveals with darker intro, spiced by assorted cyber-tech blips and pulses, one of them is quickly oscillating and almost drives me nuts. Then highly polished metallic percussive sounds step to the fore and masterfully enhance the structure, while warmly expansive washes graciously unfold and diffuse into magnificently expansive panoramas. A grandiose opener!!! The following piece, "When We Roamed The Stars", immediately attracts with its gorgeously laid-back atmosphere, led by hauntingly embracing rhythms, enchantingly delicate shimmers and earwarming airy blankets. This melodic alchemy works absolutely flawless, another example of sonic elegance and fineness!!! "The Tender Sea Of Space" is filled with stunningly captivating spaciousness. Mark Steiner appears as a guest on this composition (plus on the following track) performing on EVI (electronic valve instrument). According to Gregory, Mark is a nephew of Nyle Steiner, the inventor of EVI and EWI. Mark's EVI virtuosity adds strongly evocative atmospheric element to Greg's tranquilly illuminating heavenly symphony. The music perfectly captures the majesty of the track title. "Radiosonic Temple Of Harmonic Sound", the…
