YONDER is a musical collaboration between Sally Sparks and Chris Stack that explores the intersection of acoustic and electronic, human expression and machine precision, new and ancient, near and far. This album is primarily a collection of pieces recorded live in the studio.
After her prog keyboardist career was overwhelmed in the late 70’s by the tidal waves of disco, punk, and new wave, Sally was lured to Europe and the shadowy world of electronic eavesdropping on the Soviet Bloc.

“…an album of inspired soundscapes. Feel free to stream it first if you have any doubts. Rest assured that mere seconds into the first track, you will know that you are in capable hands.” – Ted Stahl
