New York, NY (Top40 Charts) Experimental electronic musician, Alexander Tanson, announces the compostion of an original soundtrack for the new play by internationally renowned author, Domnica Radulescu. Directed by Andreas Robertz, Exile Is My Home, is a sci-fi, post-apocalyptic fairy tale inspired by the playwrights experience as a political refugee from the former communist dictatorship of Nicolae Ceausescu. The original music and sound design follow the themes and events of the play revolving around nostalgia, exile, surreal landscapes and absurd, sometimes violent events. The result is a soundtrack moving between ambient soundscapes, emotional melodies, and surreal sound collages.

Soundtrack on Bandcamp:

Based in Charlottesville VA, sound designer and musician Alexander Tanson has been recording and performing music under the alias Siamese Floater since 2014. Performing all hardware sets using analog synths, drum machines, and tape Tanson ventures into spacey realms of ambience and cinematic techno. His obsession with electronic music began at a much younger age listening to boards of Canada, Aphex Twin, early dub music and other staples of 2000's electronica and he began experimenting with various forms of production.

In Charlottesville he is an active member of the music community, organizing and booking shows as well as curating and dj'ing an experimental electronic show local radio station wtju. "Having a radio show really pushed me to constantly find new music and I discovered so many amazing independent labels and contemporary artists from around the world. It really pushed the limits of experimentation for me and I've been able to confidently create much more non-conventional music/sound and not worry what people will think."
