5/90

Notes...
A collection of small oddments, many left over from other projects, plus a good few that were specially recorded for this. The cassette case came inside some tin foil wrapper bowed at the ends and a paper label mimicking a large toffee sweet.

This was the very last release of material from the original incarnation of Alto Stratus, released in May 1990 with a novelty sweet wrapper cover! In essence this is Alto Stratus doing an imaginary library record, with lots of thematic pieces, picture music snippets, and a few tracks dedicated to movie soundtracks that inspired us.

 

text from the original rear flap...

Alto Stratus celebrate six years of exploration and electronic music creation with a tape of previously unreleased oddities showcasing their wide range of styles, through from synth sequencer music, via electronic rock, to abstract avant-garde. 28 tasty morsels from the archives.

Versions...
Cassette: 20 copies - released 11/1984.
