Taken from Vrije THIRD (Syzygy ZC 120.008) aka the recompiled cassette

+ Liza: sax (3,5).
The first successful and largely consistent release, the 2 cassette set THIRD
introduced organ and synthesizer to the Vrije (Alto Stratus) instrumental
roster, and saw the roots of the patent Alto Stratus sound emerging, but with
many surprises like the sax and mad electronic driven "New Buildings
Falling Down" or the abstractly jazzy "Void". There were also
some embarrassing moments on the original release however that are best left
forgotten, hence the judicious pruning and remixing to condense all the best
material onto a single CDR. We entitled a previous recompilation cassette
"Alchemy", hence its use as the CD title.
cover collage is based on "The Alchemist" 1558 by Pieter Bruegel
