Alternoia is the result of the collaboration between a group of prominent artists who create work under a variety of electronic sub-genres. Under the direction of Jack Hertz, artists were tasked to create music for an album inspired by 'altered states' and 'paranoia,' hence the name: "Alternoia." Working as 7h3 n3w ƒ4£$3 90Ðz (The New False Gods), their divine skillz have produced a unique set of tracks that, in my mind, are truly evocative of the album title. Jack Hertz created demos for each track that were given to each artist to work on. What is great about this album is that each track is unique and contains elements of noise, jazz, dark ambient, etc. The elements have been masterfully mixed together to produce an album that is melodic, strange and otherworldly.
Since 1989, Trees for the Future has been helping communities around the world plant trees. Through seed distribution, agroforestry training, and our country programs, we have empowered rural groups to restore tree cover to their lands. Planting trees protects the environment and helps to preserve traditional livelihoods and cultures for generations. More information can be found at http://www.plant-trees.org

This album would not be possible without help from the artists who performed with a 10 Ton weight hanging over them. A really BIG
thanks goes to Mark Blood for writng the wonderful album liner notes for the tracks and artist' profiles. Special thanks to Kim Cascone for suggesting the group name: "The New False Gods." Remember, only the paranoid survive.
