about

"Acoustic Surgery" was conceived as the debut vinyl release from Alto Stratus, a band in existence for some 20 years, with numerous cassette and CD releases. It was created purely for those that love the LP vinyl format, but it was not to be!
The art of Alto Stratus could be seen as acoustic surgery, as we manipulate and create sound in our Tachyon Studio, a small audio operating theatre in South Leicester.
These sessions resulted in yet more material over the following few weeks (alongside a busy live period with our other band Endgame) collected together as the Alto Stratus CD release "PsYcHoSiS".
