notes...
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. In many ways this was the sequel to the CATHARSIS cassette, with the "Stalker Suite" being dedicated to the film by Andrei Tarkovsky.

First edition (quantity not specified) - released 1/1/2003.
