G.L.O.W. ALC / About
Inspired by his studies in Sound Engineering, G.L.O.W. ALC (General Language of Oscillating Wisdom - A Living Creation), an experimental electronic project, was started in 2008 by Richard Wheeler. After much experimentation with ‘music software’, Richard began uploading his final creations onto internet music sites such as MySpace, iLike and SoundCloud. Listener response posts affirmed his work was received positively. Comments have enabled G.L.O.W. ALC’s sound to progress. In July 2011, his Chillout/Lounge piece titled ‘Nocturnal Limpopo’ featured on an online Czechoslovakian compilation called ‘Relaxation before the Bedtime’ by FretNoiz Records, who had contacted him after listening to it on SoundCloud. Then, from late 2011 and throughout 2012, other Chillout/Lounge pieces of Richard’s were released too (by Fretnoiz and Amacreedo Records). In mid-March 2013, Richard created an audio-biography about who he was and what was important to him and, it was submitted to Audiobiography on Soundcloud. The audio-biography was put into a set with 19 other artists and, it was broadcasted worldwide. In late November, Richard decided to take G.L.O.W. ALC onto a whole new level by having his tracks marketed as soundtracks for film and t.v. by a South African company called Slam Music Library and continues to submit music to them. On the 29th of March 2014, G.L.O.W. ALC's track ‘African Night Sky’ was featured on an electronic music podcast called YM92.5. In early 2015, Richard contacted BeatLounge radio in LA, USA and they said they were keen to play his music, and later on in that month, Richard had his music exposed on AVIVMEDIA’s radio station which was based in Isreal. In April that year, Richard had a number of his tracks aired on Global Radio Online (now known as Freelance Radio) based in Cambridge, U.K. In September of that year, Richard decided to take on E.D.M. music. His E.D.M. track G.L.O.W. was aired for a week on a Canadian-based internet radio called Jamsterdam Radio.
