At first I thought it might have something to do with original long α, because he says βουλ[a:] and κακ[a:]ν, but I don't think that's it. I think he just has a very wide range for his vowels and sometimes his η is so open that it sounds like an [a:]. I hear something similar with his ε which are sometimes so close that they sound like [i] (or at least [ɪ]).
