Ferdinand Barthel A warm and cosy blanket of sounds, dreams for a summer evening, a wunderful little masterpiece. Favorite track: Niebla, montaña, pinos.

Dotflac This diptych by Federico Durand could be one of these music samples describing the best "optimism".

32 minutes of radiant atmospheres made of reverberating voices, distant piano, unclear guitars... The simplicity of the music, sounding dull and crackling, makes me think of oneiric sunny landscapes and green hills with trees on their top, slowly lulled by a warm wind from the south...

The kind of mesmerizing sonic loops that can brighten my day when I need to.

Dreams in stereo. Favorite track: Niebla, montaña, pinos.

folk reels I love everything Federico creates, but there is something about the album and in particular 'Adormidera' that just resonates so deeply. It is the perfect soundtrack as the family sit by the lake as the sun sets, and the stars come out. To my ears, a classic piece of ambience, full of old soul and wide-eyed vision. Thank you Fede. Favorite track: Adormidera.

"Adormidera” is the Spanish word for poppy flower. This tape, originally released as a very limited tour souvenir, has two long pieces crafted with circular melodies. 70's and 80's cassette tapes were used during the recordings.

The first piece "Niebla, montaña, pinos" is a transcription of a dream where a choir of girls sung to celebrate the harvest. I made it with very lo-fi recordings from Youtube.

The second piece is "Adormidera” in which I also used layers of voices, acoustic guitar and piano.
