Here’s a new track hot off the press, direct from the UnderGround, my basement studio called “A Question of Time.” If you could ask a question of Time, what would it be? For me it would be “how much do I have?”No commentsUncategorized

I recently updated a track from my 1990 release “Atlas,” featuring myself and bass synthesist Jeri Conway. The track in question is the opening track on the album “Signals.” I’ve added new music and retitled it “Signals From Space.” Music and vocals by me and lyrics by Jeri. Click the Soundcloud link to here it.
The concept here is an advanced civilization receives a signal from a region of space thought to be uninhabited. An expedition is mounted to check out this signal.No commentsUncategorized
Review of my last CD “The Other Side” by Matt Howarth? of the Sonic Curiosity website:
“This release from 2010 features 59 minutes of cosmic electronic music.
Galactic Anthems is Glenn Adams.
Adams’ approach to contemporary electronic music tends to infuse a degree of prog into the mix, resulting in a lovely edge that makes his music stand out in a crowd.
The electronics are quite diverse, blending airy atmospherics with grittier riffs and generating an enticing counterpoint between ethereal and substantial tones. The auralscapes are often tinged with a celestial character, bestowing the songs with a distinct ascendant quality.
Keyboards initiate a profusion of the electronics, delineating lavish chords that rarely rely on cyclic application. Adams’ nimble fingers craft intricate riffs that shimmer with astral definition.
Rhythms contribute a steady propulsion to this tuneage. The tempos are varied: strong and urgent to enhance a song’s strength, and lighter in places where a soft touch is more appropriate. The beats are often rapid and quite complex, yet retain a vantage submerged in the mix so as not to become too overpowering.
These compositions flourish with a buoyant bounce which colors the music with a jubilant flavor. The latter part of this album consists of harmonic pieces, and even these beatless tunes exhibit a strong expansive mien, aspiring to enrapture the listener with a positive sense of cosmic wonder.”
Thank you Matt!
