…”Overall I found the album an enjoyable, and relaxing, listening experience. Whether for music licensing, ambiance aficionados or the casual listener, everyone can find something to like about this charming indie release. While admittedly a bit raw in parts, the album – much like space itself – attempts to capture every piece and facet of sound and combine them into an auditory journey while making no excuses, which is does well. I suggest you check out this eclectic and original album, and see for yourself. In the meantime, I’ll be kicking back with Habitable World on repeat.” …more
I’m excitedly preparing the release of a new album called ‘Space’
What started off as an EP is now turning into a full length album themed around space and space travel. Stay tuned for more details. In the meantime here’s a sneak peek at the cover artwork. Photo courtesy of Flick user: Sweetie187 www.flickr.com/photos/58782395@N03/
I’m honoured to announce a Fetal Pulse track has been included in this compilation CD from Electro Freaks! It was Cimmerian Voyage
“The Electro Freaks are proud to announce the release of our 5th album, “Extended Four Play”! Originally slated to be part of Vol 4, we had so many great submissions we decided to split the album. You can enjoy “Four Play” and “Extended Four Play” separately, or together for a combined total of nearly 3 hours. (Whew that’s a lot of four play!)
EFP Vol 5: Extended Four Play picks up where Vol 4 left off with another solid 19 tracks. This time our returning artists lead the way, but we have more exciting new artists joining us too! There’s something for everyone, featuring a wide variety of electronic and dance music styles, including synthpop, drum-n-bass, electro, dubstep, experimental, and everything in between. And of course, as usual it’s 100% free to download via our Bandcamp page!”
Just put this together quite accidentally. Inspired by a drawing from my 5 year old, I scanned it in and started playing with in in GIMP. With his help in effects decisions while sitting on my knee, this is what we came up with
Just came across this great mashup using Worlds Collide.

“Finally, I’ve had the pleasure of mashing one of my top 10 all-time favourite songs…
Ever since hearing Shadow mash it live on the suitably titled Live! In Tune and On Time, I knew an acapella had to exist somewhere out there. This was confirmed after hearing the mighty Scratch Perverts use it live to great effect on the legendary Unkle Sounds WWIII disc 2 (1999 live recording with frontman James Lavelle). 4 years on, and I’ve found it (along with some other FANTASTIC material I hope to use soon).
On instrumental duties, is Fetal Pulse, the experimental project of Canadian Pedro Costa – wonderful sonic soundscapes that my old mate the Reborn Identity introduced me to a year or so ago.” – from Colatron.com
Fetal Pulse was recently reviewed David Holmes at Imaginary Sound Space.
“Fetal Pulse is the name of an experimental electronic music project by Canadian musician Pedro Costa. ‘Aurora’ was the first video for Fetal Pulse’s debut album Cityscapes, a 10 track album released on the 8th March 2011.
Cityscapes is an instrumental album with a lot of charm and character, mainly down-tempo, part ambient, mostly melodic, the tracks sit perfectly side by side to create a beautifully balanced whole. Pedro puts his musicality to good use conjuring up themes and dynamic changes that always flow and sustain interest. The sounds are colourful and the cleverly designed musical arrangements offer the right sonic combinations at the right times. This is an album that always feels comfortable and welcoming, like a familiar friend whose company you appreciate, time and again. “
