Direct to digital recording & filming at Tachyon Studio (29 January 2007)
Mix & reconstruction 30 January - 6 February by Alan Freeman.

Alan Freeman: guitar (with effects, violin bow and gliss), Roland SH32 synthesizer, Roland guitar synth, bowed spring-board & acoustic CD, prepared sounds

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 Discogs!

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!
