Notes

Ever buy an album because of 1 song that you couldn't live without, just to
find out THAT WAS the only good song?!? One Small Step can be enjoyed from beginning to end, as each song weaves into the next.




This is a wonderful work of acoustic music. One Small Step creates a dynamic balance between piano and guitars.

Alternate Reality started in 2000 with two original members. Both fluent in numerous instruments, they worked together to create an epic listening experience in their first release, "One Small Step..." The two members, Jason Losett and Jeremy Kopatz, targeted an audience ranging from young to old to young at heart. Every piece on this album has a movement that can only be described as "from the heart". Jason is a college instructor and an audio engineer. With more than a decade of experience on the bass guitar, acoustic guitar, and piano, he plays and intrical part in Alternate Reality. Jeremy also has a degree in audio engineering, and is currently the front man of a rock band as well as a composer of a wide variety of music. Both members have also composed music for film. "There is a similarity" says Kopatz "in the music we have done for film and this album. The idea is to capture a mood or feeling on tape that every listener can relate to." This album has definetly opened the door to harnessing an emotion to share with the listner. The instrumental works have proven to truly speak words through song.

Why did you choose to keep the songs all instrumental?
AR:The music itself creates whatever mood or feeling you want to attach to it. It seems much easier to personalize a song when someone is not singing through the entire piece to tell you what it makes them think about.

How did you choose names for these songs then?
AR:We both sat down and critically listened to every song. We would start to discuss how the music made us feel, or tell a story that the song reminded us of. The name just came out after that. We left the song names very vague so that when someone else hears it, they too can have their own take on what the song is about.

What has been your greatest feeling of accomplishment with this album?
Jason: When I sat down to listen to the pre-master version of the album to check one last time for fluency in the track order, it took five or six different critiques, because I kept falling asleep. The entire ablum front to back was written with the intention of sounding like one song, or one story. Every song flows together from one to another both musically and emotionally. The idea was a huge success. I wanted to make a relaxing album that anyone could enjoy regardless of age or demographic. The album was so relaxing that I couldn't even critically listen without falling asleep myself.

If you write another album, what will you do different?
Jason: We wrote over 40 songs before narrowing the album down to these 14 (actually 15). I have always been very critical of my own music, usually not liking the song much after its been written. It sounds good at the time, but two weeks later I just think the song could be better. My most difficult task was to make an album that even I could enjor years later. I am my own most difficult audience. I am happy to say that I can still sit down and love this album as much as the day we started writing for it. If I had to do it again, nothing. The process worked great. I write a song, show it to people and get their feeling of the song. When they describe a song as a feeling like "reminds me of a summer day" or "I feel like drinking egg nog at Christmas" it tells me that the music is reaching out to people. That is what I want.

Alternate Reality has been recording songs over the last three years, but as of yet has not released any information about a follow up album. "It will arive when we feel the songs satisfy everyone." To hear new songs by the band, email:
