STAR'S END Update - 31 August 2014
Eolian Reflections Within everyone is a place without words. For Gregory Kyryluk this place is expressed quite fully in his music. Recording as Alpha Wave Movement his album Eolian Reflections (60'37") will sit well alongside Spacemusic works by Steve Roach, Jonn Serrie, Paul Ellis and Rudy Adrian. This album runs counter to the prevailing spirit of cynicism. Eolian Reflections provides six tracks ranging in feel from gentle expansion to formidable force. With its recurring synthesized string chord motion, harmony and contrast interplay to great effect. These slow moving works unfold easily in the dreamy brilliance of shifting chord progressions or darkly in the thickening atmosphere of a rumbling drone. To add some sonic diversity scattered throughout Eolian Reflections are various rhythm elements. With either percussion samples played at a ceremonial pace or electronic patterns pulsing and echoing in a kinetic glow these metrical forms push their piece through different levels and phases in imaginative ways. While electronic musicians obviously do make use of synthesizers, computers and software... what of the human system? As tech driven as the music of Alpha Wave Movement is this artist is in touch with a deep emotional existence - and exposes this realm on each new album released.

Please tune in to STAR'S END this weekend for music from Eolian Reflections the recent album by Alpha Wave Movement

onewayness & Modulator ESP - Live on STAR'S END 08.31.14
onewayness Modulator ESP Prolific UK synthesist Jez Creek records and performs under the name Modulator ESP. Producing improvised experimental soundscapes using synthesizers, sampling, sequencing, looping and processing to create strange worlds of sound somewhere between '70s Spacemusic, noise and dark ambient drone the music of Modulator ESP travels to the furthest reaches of sound and art.

Based in Erie, Pennsylvania onewayness is the audio project of Adam Holquist. An avid tour-maker onewayness performs in any space outfitted with electricity and a public address system. Using an array of software and synthesizers he produces sounds that sometimes takes on form, therefore approaching the status of music. With an diverse recorded output and extensive list of live performance credits this artist exhibits a fearlessness and passion unique in the experimental genre.

Modulator ESP and onewayness are presently on tour, and stop in at STAR'S END on the broadcast of 31 August 2014. Please tune in this weekend for their live to air radio concert.
