Alt - CD Edition
THE NEW PROJECT FROM VAN DER GRAAF GENERATOR

AN ALTERNATIVE ALBUM REFLECTING ANOTHER SIDE OF ONE OF PROGRESSIVE ROCK’S MOST ENDURING AND CREATIVE ARTISTS


Esoteric Recordings are pleased to announce the latest release on their front-line label, ESOTERIC ANTENNA, dedicated to new releases by both new acts and established artists. ‘ALT’ is a new studio project by the legendary VAN DER GRAAF GENERATOR and follows on from the release of "A GROUNDING IN NUMBERS” in 2011.   "ALT” is no ordinary Van Der Graaf Generator album (if the term "ordinary” could ever be applied to this visionary group). PETER HAMMILL explains; "Instrumental Improvs & Experiments - Most of the music on "ALT” was made while we weren't really looking, or perhaps only while the left side of our collective brain was engaged. The album is a mixture of improvisations recorded at sound checks and in the studio and more considered sonic creations which often verge on Musique Concrete. The fourteen pieces here offer a fascinating glimpse into an alternative Van der Graaf Generator sound world. Perhaps the closest comparison would be with the second CD of "Present", but even the link with those recordings is tenuous. Even by Van der Graaf Generator standards, this stuff's at the wacky end of the scale!”   This instrumental album is another side of Van Der Graaf Generator, a truly unique listening experience.

Press:-

"Alt is, according to Hammill, a collection of instrumental improvisations recorded "while we weren't really looking or while the left side of our collective brain was engaged".

These pieces have a good deal of merit, even if they're lacking any sort context or concept  - the crashing percussion of tracks like Midnite Or So, buffeted by jazzy runs of electric keyboard, are reminiscent of the wilder experimentalism of Faust." (7/10*)
