2000's selection

by Alto Stratus



Another easy first-step portal into discovering the adventurous sound world of Alto Stratus, this time with 9 selections from the 2000s that serve as an ideal cross-section of styles explored by the duo during their second phase after a decades hiatus. Here Alto Stratus are far more accomplished as musicians than during the 80s incarnation, and with a much more varied collection of instruments, gadgets and effects, etc. Now astute as live improvisers, involved in the Improv. Electronic and Qudaelectronic events for over a decade, you'll find a couple of examples of Alto Stratus live here in collaboration with others as well.
