This video was filmed using a cheap digital photo camera
connected to a PC. The visual quality isn't amazing, but it's not bad and
certainly watchable, almost like having Alto Stratus performing in your
living room without all the inconvenience! For full effect, turn it up loud
on your TV surround system and feel the floor shudder! The disc also contains
psychedelic video animations and oscillating auto-pan camera movement, of
which the latter can be a little disorienting, and thus we do not recommend
it for people that easily get sea sick or are under the influence of alcohol
or drugs! Check-out the previews on
The CDR album version of this is called: Time Dilation / Metamorphosis, which
incorporates an extra session, with laminations/remixes, extended versions
and new material, hence the tag "Metamorphosis" amounting to quite
a different experience!
