Mark Alan's dog died in 2009 and it had a huge impact on him. Operating under the Alphanaut banner the LA based musician has been building on a small electronic pop oeuvre. He deals with his loss with a 13 song suite called Little Sun (out in July). He is offering the first single Back to the Stars as a free download. The accompanying video is a Sci-fi styled tribute, tying in with his other obsession, outer space.
