ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
The Center of Accident One

"The music is the work of a duo bent on crafting weird lo-fi manic rock. Samples abound and live peacefully, coexisting with guitar, percussion, and post-folk rock adventures. " - Smother.net (Editor's Pick)

"All the quirkiness and eccentricity of IDM, combined with the cohesiveness and listenability of a singer-songwriter." - Urban Folk Zine.

El Alto is the primary outlet for the stylistic schizophrenia of Dom Maltempi and Michael Quoma.

Their pick-a-card-any-card delivery of vocals, guitars, loops, strings and percussion is at times spontaneous and at times sampled and re-sampled from early rehearsals and precursory collaborations.

The two New York-based musicians developed their patchwork approach to live performance as former members of the five-member rock group RV Wolfsegg. Now functioning as a recording duo (with ample assistance from musical colleagues), El Alto extracts elements of folk, ambient, post-rock, electronic and lyrical improvisation.
