For Alec Koone, the 20 year old, Pennsylvania resident, who was 19 and based in New York at the time of his first release, WANDER / WONDER is a coming of age album that sees him expand upon the unique sound that attracted him so much attention to begin with. In Koones own words: >Its an open ended album, and I think individuals should make their own meaning of it so that it is something actually real to them. Its not classical music, but in the tradition of a classical work like a Bach Cello Suite, I see it as more of a whole musical piece with themes/motifs/ideas reoccurring throughout, connecting the tracks together as opposed to simply being a collection of songs that sit next to each other in isolation. Its also an album that should be listened to loudly. >WANDER / WONDER< is a mysterious and genuinely haunting record that seems to exist in a world all of its own making, balanced between the ecstatic >wonder< referenced in the title and something altogether more indefinable and uncertain of itself, like shards of light flickering through a blanket of fog, and even though >WANDER / WONDER< is undeniably an electronic album, it feels strangely organic, rooted in nature, synthetic textures and distorted voices harmonizing with an ever present oceanic shimmer. WANDER / WONDER was written and produced by Alec Koone in New York and Pennsylvania. Mixed by Alec Koone and Sam Haar (member of Blondes) in New York City.
