Reconnaissance / In No Strange Land

Coordinator – Teresa Stone

Cover Design: Hess and/or Antupit

Terrific electronic album that does an excellent job of blending real instruments with the synthetically generated sounds.

If you sit back and close your eyes the music could create a movie in your mind. Reconnaissance is one continuous track that could help you visit a fantastic planet while sitting in your easy chair.

Side two features In No Strange Land which continues the journey in 4 movements. This trip is a bit more "fractured" than side one.
