about

Your easy first-step portal into discovering the adventurous sound world of Alto Stratus, with 10 selections from the 1980s that are largely at the more accessible end of their oeuvre. There are, of course, some extremely weird bits here too, notably the unnerving "Stalker 1" and the malevolently twisted "Salivant-Malevil". So, if you enjoy what you hear, check out the source albums indicated within parenthesis in the track titles.
