about

The Newt Hounds project was originally an offshoot/concept by the brothers Alan & Steve Freeman of Alto Stratus. The debut "The Poignant Device" kind of lampooned the Nurse With Wound ethic and style of sonic art composition. This project started life as some left-over ideas from the second The Newt Hounds album "Loose Nuts" released in 2007, a 99 track collection of sound fragments and compositions running a wide gamut of styles. As the years went on, a vast number of new recycled loops and collages amassed, and thus it became more of a personal project than a third Newt Hounds album. Thus "Topology Of A Phantom City" became a new concept, partly Nurse With Wound inspired, and also a dedication to the surreal French cinema of the 1970's and the innovators in musique-concrete at the INA-GRM.
