A further trek into the dominions of dusty red terrain and enigmatic crimson sunsets. Canyons and plateaus that echo a shamans motif of tribes lost in the mist of time & forgotten history. Music infused with improvisation and imagery channeled thru electronic medium and carved into form. Refractive tone clusters and their rhythmic counterparts vibrate thru the sediment and stone on the Archaic Frontiers.

Any music reviewers or dj's interested in promotional copies please feel free to send a PM note.

Available on CD + Digital Download at the HRR Bandcamp Page:

The latest Alpha Wave Movement release moves forward into the deeper voids of space, time and audio permutations. Drawing once more from the genre's of classic space music, ambient music and new age music of revelatory past.

Guest musician Mark Steiner performs on the Steiner EVI (electronic valve instrument) adding extended electro harmonic voice to the audio narratives of the Celestial Chronicles.

Travel across space within the womb of warm synthetic sound and rhythmic symmetry. Twilight horizons on distant shores echo signals of ancient light pulses emitting streaming knowledge of forgotten star tribes. AMbient music drawn from the well of influences past, filtered thru the present time continuum and refracted into the ether of the cosmos.

Release date February 7, 2014, Pre-orders are being taken and cd might ship prior to the release date.

Available on CD + Digital Download at the HRR Bandcamp page

From the Harmonic Resonance audio vaults found recorded vestiges that predate the debut Context. This release is a compendium of unreleased music.

Rare live recordings (we never performed but 3-4 times live and even then they where very short improv's), droneworks, soundscapes and live studio curios. We used everything from old analog drum machines, Moog's, ARP's, primitive samplers and early digital synthesizers to carve the music out that was spontaneous and driven by the moment's inspiration.

The music is never pre-calculated or composed although at times it may seem so the intention of Thought Guild was to let things happen and ride the wave of momentary inspiration.

As with many improvised music the recordings on this release are not intended to be perfect capsules of conservatory mastered musicianship. Instead the end result is the beauty of creative spontaneity caught in a moment of time.

Available on limited CD-r jewel case with full art and digital download format of your choice at the HRR Bandcamp site

A body of collected Within Reason (Alpha Wave Movement alt project) tracks created prior to Subtle Shift and in-between Transient Broadcasts. Also included is the rare and never released Group Think - Within Reason (Within a Dub Mix) of the track "Does it Dream" from the Group Think release "Of Microcosmic Origins".
Malibar Bay is one of the first proto-type Within Reason tracks and is a more uplifting down-tempo electronica track which is itself reveals the varietal nature of the Within Reason project.

There will only be a limited micro run of 25 cd's

Pendergrast who?

Never heard of him.

But then again I have very little time for a downwind of sulphur gas........from across the Atlantic!

The debut release from Thought Guild "Context" my collaboration with synthesist Christopher Cameron is available once again for a brief time period.

This was originally released in 2002 and has been unavailable for many years. Context was a the genesis of a trilogy of releases before the project finally came to an end.

Thought Guild was an improvisational project of instant ideas and parallel influences caught in the digital medium. Instrumentation was from the bygone days of Yamaha CS, ARP and Moog analog synthesizers intertwined with some more "modern" gear.

Most of the music was a two-track jam session where spontaneity was the music and conductor.

I have only pressed a very minuscule quantity.

Actually the NW is great if you can tolerate 7 months of rain. It is picturesque and very inspirational.

Most the westcoast is beautiful(sans LA) but the economy on the westcoast vs eastcoast circa 2013 might be a bit of a challenge as CA has a higher than average unemployment.

If you prefer desert I suggest Santa Fe, NM.

Stay away from Florida, too much going on with the whole Zimmerman thing plus the heat and humidity and lack of any beautiful landscapes unless you like the beach and malls makes it a - in my opinion.....

As far as the "scene" I believe San Francisco and Philadelphia have more of the scene but dont expect massive crowds at the shows!

Nice to see people speaking out about Bandcamp.

I started using Bandcamp last year on recommendations from a good friend and all I have to say is that they are very fair with regards to fees plus a very clean user interface is a huge bonus. I also enjoy the fact that you do not need to be a tech wizard to set up a Bandcamp page which is the way these music sites "should" be designed from their genesis.

Having been a devotee of CD Baby for many a year I have shifted all my physical cd sales to Bandcamp and deferred the gouging that CD Baby administers per each cd sold. I mean $4 a disc profit on each cd sales plus upfront setup fees plus profit from your digital sales is just beating the independent over the head with fees. I only use CDB now for digital distribution i.e. ITunes, Amazon digital etc and for this they are a necessity.

As long as BC doesnt become a sellout to a big corporations i.e. CD Baby they are a shinning star in the Northern hemisphere for music distribution.

The latest Harmonic Resonance Recordings release Alpha Wave Movement "Architexture of Silence" is now available on Bandcamp.

Architexture of Silence is the 18th Alpha Wave Movement release and it is an excursion into the realms of ambient music where interlacing branches of timbral topography expand across the subtle macrocosm of silent reflective inner landscapes.

This release hearkens my return to using a very minimal hardware(0% software synthesis) setup and no computer based sequencing. In other words I used an ancient(by today's standards) hardware sequencer as a sketch pad. Composing in a limited medium beckoned the creative and spontaneous muse to sculpt the musical movements that became Architexture. There are no track titles per se and the music is volatile  with a sense of distant openness in so much that labeling and forcing any title upon the listener would distract from the sublety.

CDs will be available later this week. Downloads are available immediately for purchase.

Jim,

What exactly are you promoting in your podcasts your music or other artists?

Curious as there are no specifics on your site or post.

Yasumu is a Japanese term, which translated means to rest, to suspend or to relax.

The latest Alpha Wave Movement recording is a contemplative electronic trek that traverses onto that path of tranquility. Music designated for relaxation, meditation or the inward journey of self-realization.

Streams of gentle synthesized sound are entwined with reflections of distant Tibetan bells, wind chimes and string instruments. Echoes of the orient are speckled throughout and used to accentuate a remote eastern aesthetic.

A aural excursion of a quiescent nature.

The new cd & digital download is available at the Harmonic Resonance Recordings Bandcamp page. Just click the link below.

Hey Saul,

Greg here!

Read you post on the choice to go the download route over physical releases.

I must say I am old school in the sense I do not even have a cd player in my car that plays mp3s so cd's and cd-r's are a must for mobility on the roadways.

However I whole heartily agree with the download sales being robust as my own music sales are derived mainly from the digital domain and for years its been this way. As much as you want to fight the tide you need to give the masses the musical ocean to bathe in!

I will personally still press physical cds/cdr's in limited batches for the sheer personal desire  and for those few supporting fans (I am not mincing words here) who like me want music in a physical medium. No matter how much people on the forums of various sites preach their dislike of limited pressings at the end of the day the sales don't justify pressing copious quantities to take up shelf space.

Saul any chance you might think of re-releasing Burning Igloo for download?

Good luck on your endeavors and thanks for sharing your experiences with the rest of us.

New Release from Harmonic Resonance Recordings.

Exiled Particles Volume I - Archive 1997-2005

Music recorded from 1997 to 2005 that never found an enlightened path to a actual physical release. Most of the compositions can be compared to early trance electronica. Effort has been not to mimic that genre per se but rather use the style as a compass. Also inclusive are two long lost ambient tracks.

Full digital downloads in any format and cd's are available for purchase
at Harmonic Resonance Recordings Bandcamp
