4 stars ALPHA WAVE MOVEMENT is the project of American Greg Kyryluk and he has been making music under this band name since 1995. It's hard to believe that the title of this album isn't a nod to fellow American Electronic musician and pioneer Steve Roach's 1984 album called "Structure From Silence". The music here is very ambient and for the most part slow moving and spacey. It's broken down into five tracks worth over an hour of very enjoyable music. I must say I really enjoy the cover art of this album and the art work of several of his other releases.

"Movement I" has these spacey sounds that drift in and out with some faint twittering. Beautiful stuff. Pulsating sounds arrive after 6 minutes as the spacey sounds continue to come in waves. "Movement II" has a steady and spacey soundscape with a repeated synth melody as an electronic beat comes in. The pulsating synths are more of the focus after 5 minutes. It then becomes quite spacey with the electronic beats continuing.

"Movement III" has a darker vibe as liquid-like electronics fall like rain on this sombre soundscape. Spacey sounds then wash in and out slowly. Deep bass-like sounds arrive later. "Movement IV" again features spacey sounds that drift in and out like on track one. Liquid sounding synths are sprinkled in. It turns quieter later on. "Movement V" is very spacey and drifting and then an electronic beat comes in around 6 1/2 minutes and this will dominate although the spacey sounds will continue.

This is such a pleasant trip, in fact it would be perfect to put on while trying to go to sleep at night. Not as impressive as NODE's latest but this won't be my last review of an ALPHA WAVE MOVEMENT recording.
