No Answer 11:01


A one-day session of live improvisations and lamination/constructions from the very end of 2002, resulting in an album of intense invention, a hybrid of industrial, kosmische and unique Alto Stratus. Imaginary soundtracks and pure live electroacoustic invention, much more emotive than title may suggest. The "Stalker Suite" is dedicated to the film by Andrei Tarkovsky.


released February 2, 2012

Recorded at Tachyon Studio (31 December 2002), featuring additional source material from January, August and December 2002.
