Alpha Test was one of my early attempts at making video art outside of the setting of undergraduate academia. I had been working for a few years in high-tech, travelling and playing music when I could. I was looking forward to advancing my education and my creative work, and needed an outlet, so I created Alpha Test. I shot the project on a small Canon DV camera and edited the entire project in Final Cut Pro 2 (yes, version two). The soundtrack was recorded on a Yamaha CS2x synthesizer and recorded into Cubase.
