  Andrew Sega (Necros) (Now working as 'The Alpha Conspiracy'):
Cipher

The Alpha Conspiracy is synonymous with the musician Andrew Sega, known by many in the scene as "Necros". Although he has already been famous in the scene for his tracker music for many years, this is his first CD album. Music style: Intelligent electro. I like this a lot - some of it reminds me of Kraftwerk, but then again... it doesn't! Another great release by another great musician from the never dying demo scene!

A few words from Andrew Sega (Necros) himself, about this CD:

"The 'cipher' CD is the end result of over 10 months of work. I've tried to incorporate and yet transcend the roots of the tracker/demo scene, merging my own skewed electronica sensibilities with sliced-up ethereal sequenced madness and vocal exploration. It's in the tradition of experimental electronica acts such as Mouse on Mars, Underworld, Orbital, and others, while still remaining tantalizingly accessible. Professionally mixed and mastered at the alpha conspiracy studios, and released on March 15, 2001" - Andrew Sega, aka "Necros"

Reviews for The Alpha Conspiracy: Cipher

"I totally love this album! I've been following the music of Necros for years now and he is just getting better and better. This album is amazing! Every track is smooth and comfortable to listen to. I can't wait for his next album." - Michael Hansen, USA

"Necros has been kicking ass galore ever since his MOD days, and though his style changed much since then, he still is able to create extremely engaging electronic tunes. Cross Product is an excellent beginning to this disc, whereas Martian Lovesong is a good remix of an older module by Andrew; Winter is absolutely awesome and most of the other tracks are great as well. I have two qualms regarding this CD: the first is a couple of tracks I really can't stand (Glass and Morphic - I figure they're experimental, but I find them unbearable), and pretty low mixing quality (tested on Arcam Alpha 7SE/JMR Twin Mk2/Akai AA-R30 with generic interconnects) that is both generally evident, as well as specifically apparent in some parts of the disc (for example, many clicks and pops in Martian Lovesong). However, despite these problems, the CD still contains great music an d is very enjoyable." - Tomer Gabel, Israel

"This is an excellent album, and quite a departure from mindless techno. Very profound tracks, each sounding unique. "Winter" is a beautiful composition, but "Skeptopotamus" and "Spiral Effect" and very cool too. An excellent album; Andrew rox!" - Ravi Subramanian, USA
