A collection of more abstract and cosmic electronics from the Alto Stratus archives, it includes some interestingly different alternate takes of tracks and a few original pieces as well, amounting to a good starter. Please not that the quality of this release is not quite up to the standard of other Alto Stratus releases due to two or thee further generations of analogue tape copying involved in doing the remixes.
