Direct to digital recording at Tachyon Studio (29 January & 19 March 2007)
Mix, editing & reconstruction 8/11 April 2007 by Alan Freeman.

With the video release "Time Dilation" you get the raw (virtually) as they were performed pieces from a live in the studio January 2007 session. Whereas, with the music CD version "Time Dilation / Metamorphosis" you get an altogether different creation, featuring much of the same source music, but along with overdubs and new recordings from a March session, plus additional reconstruction and editing.

The resulting CD is a wide ranging melange of sonic textures, loops, guitars and electronics, at times revisiting the realms of old releases like "Tachyon" or "The Ritual", but with that daring new Alto Stratus sound that "boldly goes" places that even we've never heard of! A hell of a lot of synthesizer textures on this one (lots of bizarre twittering and weird sonics especially), organs and fuzz guitars, pieces of musique-concrete and stuff that no one has given a name to yet!
