Altamont was Steven Wilson and Simon Vockings. It existed between 1983-84. Wilson was 14/16 years old at that time. All of the music was improvised live onto cassette tapes using primitive analogue synthesizers and a home made echo machine.

Unreleased Electronic Music
|Unreleased Electronic Music Vol. 1||April, 2004||Wilson's experiments in rhythmic electronic music between 1990-2003. The CD-R is packed in a DVD case, with unique polaroid and signed index card[c]. The vinyl edition is limited to 500 copies and contains "Shortwave - Remix" (9:11) as a bonus track.|
^ c - Each CD-R copy of Unreleased Electronic Music Vol. 1 contains its own one of a kind original Polaroid photograph taken by Lasse Hoile specifically for the project. David Schroeder has set up a webpage dedicated to displaying Lasse Hoile's polaroids from SW's Unreleased Electronic Music Vol. 1 in numerical order along with their owner's names. Actual dates of the tracks provided by SW. Some of these Polaroids can now be found in the "Old Polaroids" album at Lasse Hoile's MySpace page.
|March, 2006||"Well You're Wrong"||That was the first song that Steven Wilson put up on MySpace. A re-recorded and slightly extended version of this song appeared later on Wilson's "Cover Version V" single.|
|August, 2006||"Cut Ribbon"||According to the "Steven Wilson iOS App" : "This was originally written for a planned metal collaboration with Mikael from Opeth about 10 years ago, then later re-recorded for both ‘Insurgentes’ and more recently ‘Grace for Drowning’. Each time I couldn’t really make it fit in with the style of those records so here it finally finds a home, in its most recent 2010 mixed form." It has been widely bootlegged, but incorrectly attributed to Porcupine Tree, since it comes from the same period as several demos for the In Absentia album circa 2002. Versions available include the 2002 leaked version, a slightly different 2006 mix from Wilson's Myspace, and the 2010 version left off of Grace for Drowning.|
|August, 2006||"Collecting Space"||An instrumental demo made in 2003 during writing sessions for Porcupine Tree's Deadwing album, but never recorded by the band. A proper version of this piece was released on the limited edition of the 1st Steven's solo album called Insurgentes, while this demo appears as an extra track on the Insurgentes movie DVD.|
|October, 2006||"Vapour Trail Lullaby"||According to Steven Wilson: "I found this on a CDR of demos from around 2000, and it's an early version of the song that was later recorded for the first Blackfield album with a much more stripped down piano and string quartet arrangement. Here I was obviously going for something a bit more epic (the full version lasts about 16 minutes, but this is the first 6). After Rush called their album "Vapour Trails" I changed the title of the Blackfield version to just Lullaby."|
|October, 2006||"Deadwing Theme"||This is a short piece written for the prospective soundtrack to the film "Deadwing", which exists at present only as a screenplay written by Steven Wilson and film-maker Mike Bennion. Although this piece was written during the Deadwing album sessions, it was not released on the standard or limited editions of the album of the same name. It was officially released in 2010 as an extra track on the Insurgentes movie DVD. It features melodies from an earlier demo "Godfearing" which was written - according to Wilson - circa 2001/2003.|
|June, 2012||"Godfearing"||According to Steven Wilson: "I found this on an old computer - it's a demo for either the In Absentia or Deadwing albums, something that never got used - I can't be totally sure because while it shares lyrical themes with the songs on In Absentia, one of the melodies seems to relate to another piece from Deadwing era. I don't remember too much about it, other than I guess it wasn't good enough to get any further than this. Rescued from the abyss, so I only have a compressed audio file of this one, sorry about that."|
