about

This EP consists of one new track and 3 excerpts from a series of cassette collages I did awhile back, which are available to check out on my Mixcloud:

www.mixcloud.com/alphastare/

These are made from sound samples, field recordings, synths and loops collaged to create these unique pieces.

The opening track was built around a loop of horse hoofs, the horse was in a trailer stuck in stop and go traffic and the sound is of the horse trying to keep his balance as the truck would stop and then lurch forward.

The photo's that accompany these tracks are by Jeff K. (Alphastare) and were taken with an iphone 4 held very steadily in front of the view hole of a pair of binoculars.
