"Quadra Station" by Lorne David Thomson

Available on Ping Things here

"Our latest release comes from Lorne David Thomson [ldtregent], who many of you will remember from 2009's "Swimming Alone" ping things net release. His latest, "Quadra Station" is a collection of songs that presents a hopeful and optimistic view of the stars, a retro journey that takes us back to a time where wonder and excitement about space travel abounds. Incorporating actual samples from the NASA archives, "Quadra Station" is a fabulous release, from the thick analog sounds of the eponymous opening track, through the Eastern instrumentation of "The Technician's Dream", the hypnotic pulse and twinkling stars of "Sleeping in the LEM", the steady beat-driven movement of "Apollo 8", to the grandeur of album closer 'A Free Trip Home'..."

Dogma Noveau

via Meteer

"I would like to make you aware of Dogma Noveau.

The site contains loads of dogmatic music, free to download. Every piece has its own story!

'Dogma Noveau is about creating conceptual music from a predetermined rule (Dogma) which is collectively decided during the gathering of Dogm:ites. These exotic occasions occur on a monthly to bi-monthly irregular basis and are performed in combination with intake of fuel for body and mind. At these gatherings, the results from previous round are played loud through a sound-amplification system, and the artistic works are described/defended/saluted with merry cheers from the Dogm:ites present at this unique and joyous occasion. Normally the host of the gathering is obligated to define the next rule, and a new date is set (and often, changed).'

"Huba&Silica it's about to drop a new single called FLASH on march the 26th on Beatport. Recorded and mixed in Costa Rica and mastered in UK by Simon Davey (link), the track was built using the moog voyager and native instruments battery only, sequenced on Live 8.

To celebrate the track and "Flash" it real good, we have also printed a Zine that graphically reinterprets, with a huge dose of sarcasm, the song lyrics about the process by which we stop building our own personality, and favor the building of a character instead. All of our art is created in collaboration with the costarican artists Pablo Murillo ( and Manuel Al-Ghassani (

You can listen the full track and remixes in or you can also search for Huba&Silica in iTunes and Beatport.

Integrante de Fussible, El Colectivo Nortec y Latinsizer, aunque hay 3 proyectos musicales en los que estoy involucrado y estar tiempo completo en la gira de Bostich+Fusible,
aquí subiré temas que me gusta componer cuando estoy viajando hacia alguna ciudad conocida o desconocida o esas noches de insomnio. Música que compongo con mis instrumentos portátiles como un iphone o el Tenori-on y registrar esos recuerdos en frecuencias placenteras y melodías con las que me gustaría dormir."
