The latest Alpha Wave Movement cd "Soniq Variants" has been released for 2011.
This is a limited pressed CD-R with full color art so when supplies are gone it will not be repressed at least for the time being. Mp3's seem to be the listening method of choice with many fans so therefore that will remain the medium of choice once the cdr's are sold out.
Some background on Soniq Variants:
A recording based on American made Ensoniq(hence the name Soniq) brand synthesizers now almost considered to be vintage digital. The music was composed using only hardware synthesis with slight computer assistance for compositional arrangement and audio recording.
Music was realized on the Ensoniq VFX-SD(modified to SD-1) and an Ensoniq ESQ-1 with the addition of a Ensoniq SQ-R+, DP-4 processor and some minor use of a Novation Nova.
The concept was to take these older instruments and carve out long, ethereal ambient soundscapes that convey a timeless space to listeners. Considered limited by today's standards these machines offer a special timbral quality that made them unique and a niche in the world of contemporary music making tools.
Here is where you can find mp3 samples of the album. There will be more in the next few days.
CD's are available direct: $12 domestically/Canada and $15 overseas. Prices include shipping.
