The Alto is an instrument of mystery and sensuality, haunting beauty and shifting silk. But just as the most graceful ninja can flip out and cut your head off, the Altoz have been known to whirl into a dervish of music and movement so ridiculous, unprepared bystanders have literally been blown off of their feet by the sheer intensity of the rocking out and wailing produced by the sexion. This phenomenon brought on by the playing of an Alto is the primary reason for their placement in the band set-up; in the front, and slightly to the left. In the front to prevent other sexions from being incapacitated by the aura of awesome exuded by the altoz, and to the left as to not steal (all of) the audiences' attention and because it looks kinda cool.
