Alpha Coda was recorded over the course of 2010 at . S Friendly Studios Deptford through a considered process of crafting beats and an unbroken creative correspondence with then localised MC Menza, rough demos soon turned into locked bars finished tracks. This constant trade off of inspiration, ideas and experience between MC Menza and producers Neil Cage & Ben81 has resulted in a jostling at times, haunting and always severingly thoughtful and masterful work.
Alpha is the second studio album by British rock band Asia, released on 26 July 1983 in the United States and on 12 August 1983 in the United Kingdom by Geffen Records. Recorded at Le Studio in Morin-Heights, Quebec, and Manta Sound in Toronto from February to May 1983, the album was produced, like its multi-platinum predecessor, by Mike Stone. Guitarist Steve Howe left the band in 1984. Thus, Alpha was the last album to feature the band's original line-up until Phoenix which was released in 2008
It contains: CD with the live performance audio recorded at ELEKTRA (38' 26) 4 pages booklet w/ a text by François Larini 1 unique printed visual generated by ALPHA's algorithm Includes unlimited streaming of ALPHA (live recording 1. 5. 15) via the free Bandcamp app, plus high-quality download in MP3, FLAC and more. ALPHA is a live performance merging sound and visuals into a dense and immersive matter. I designed and composed the first version during the summer 2014 by using a very new creative process. I progressively grew music structures and designed the visuals generation system at the same time. The visual system analyses sound in real time and dynamically generates the elements and structures displayed on the screen during the performance.
Alpha was recorded during the spring of 1983 at Le Studio in Morin Heights, Quebec and Manta Sound in Toronto. Alpha focused more on mainstream pop/rock sounds, and is less characterized by progressive rock elements than its predecessor. The album reached on the Billboard album chart and Top Five in the UK Albums Chart. It was certified platinum in the United States by the RIAA on 11 October 1983 and silver in Britain by the BPI on 5 September 1983. Although Alpha achieved commercial success, it did not meet music industry expectations after the band's enormously successful debut album. Nothing on Alpha packs the sheer sonic force of the band's debut".
