'Allotropy' was comissioned in June 1985 by Allotrophy Exhibition (Jan Smith-Merritt and Stephen Hill), two American video artists. It was composed to accompany their performance video, reflecting not only the visuals we were presented with but also their personalities which became an integral part of the whole project. The final video piece is not available but by releasing the music this CD stands as evidence of its existence.

Originally released on cassette in 1987.

Painting by S. Godin entitled 'Choir Boys'
