HYDROTON Soundtrack review: “electron microscope matter ballet”

The soundtrack for HYDROTON A Model of Cold Fusion is available as a compilation at Bandcamp and was reviewed earlier this month by French music publication IndieRockMag.com. (g-trans English)

Electronic musician Esa Ruoho a.k.a. Lackluster first put the sounds together for the science documentary on Edmund Storms‘ “nano-crack” theory of LENR. Filmed and edited by Ruby Carat, HYDROTON also features animation by Jasen Chambers.

From the review:

After gravitating around the Merck label in it’s heydays, this floridan equivalent of Warp until 2007, the finnish Lackluster now flies under the radar via small structures and today via autoproduction, relegated to the margins by musical media and lovers of electronic sounds — more interested today with pop and dansey incarnations –, like many specially-gifted craftmen of a now fringe of electronic music.

He has since broken away from IDM for more atmospherical experimentations, and we meet Esa Ruoho once again today with two beautiful ambient releases, a solo and a collaboration.

Iridescent pads (Circling), stellar blips (Wet Echoes Part XIV) and cascades of echoing keys (Fragrance), even without the gummy beats of the LAX EP, the Hydroton soundtrack sounds more like what this Helsinki native accustomed us to with his electronica moniker, which he’s using here.

Second collaboration with the documentary film-maker Ruby Carat from the Cold Fusion Now! collective which gathers researchers from all over the world, specialists of cold fusion, Hydroton gives music to a documentary on cold fusion theory of the same name. In this new video, Dr. Edmund Storms explains his model based on formation of hydrogen kernels tighter than usual in nano-spaces (gaps) of materials which can trigger a slow cold fusion with electrons, and give off energy as photos. It’s holiday-time so we won’t bore you with physics, however musically Lackluster orchestrates here an electron-microscope matter-ballet (Unveiling), an organic ambient but sufficiently abstract in its textural, pulsated loops to evoke a particle flow rather than cellular-life (Walls Low Ebb).

Here is a taste of the sounds:

Regarding working with Ruby Carat on a science documentary soundtrack, Esa says, “From my side, I decide I’m working on music for a soundtrack, and the things I record from then onwards are either “going towards it” or “being part of it”. I’ll also try and see what else would be sensible to add in – as in the piano track Fragrance, which felt like it would be a good theme for the credits.”

“In the case of the cold fusion documentaries, Ruby did ask me to create something with a low bass pulse, so I accepted that as one defining thing for the songs on the soundtrack – luckily that didn’t prove to be a limiting factor at all. The approach is the same to making sounds for performance; I don’t feel like there is anything specifically different from making soundtracks or playing freestyle, it’s all the same process.”

Esa Ruoho is also the Editor and composed the theme music for the Cold Fusion Now! podcast which brings the voices of cmns scientists to the public.

Esa says, “I’m happy to be involved in this landmark effort by Ruby & Cold Fusion Now! – because as far as I know, there’s not been a steady Cold Fusion / LENR/CANR podcast interviewing scientists, engineers and inventors. It feels like documenting an important point in time, and I hope the listeners are as inspired by the interviews as I am. I think more people should see these and hear the podcasts, as eventually work like this is gonna move the needle, when it becomes more popular.”

Attendees of the 21st International Conference on Condensed Matter Nuclear Science ICCF-21 all went home with a special ColdFusionNow.org flash-drive with conference abstracts, LENR science articles, and HYDROTON animations and audio files.

In the isolated LENR field where fact disappears by the cacophony of false claims, we believe it’s important to support the musicians and artists who have the courage to translate this science into words, images and sounds that draw the public into understanding.

Please purchase this compilation from Esa to show this work matters.

In the words of Nikola Tesla:

It was the artist, too, who awakened that broad philanthropic spirit which, even in old ages, shone in the teachings of noble reformers and philosophers, that spirit which makes men in all departments and positions work not as much for any material benefit or compensation — though reason may command this also — but chiefly for the sake of success, for the pleasure there is in achieving it and for the good they might be able to do thereby to their fellow-men.

Through his influence types of men are now pressing forward, impelled by a deep love for their study, men who are doing wonders in their respective branches, whose chief aim and enjoyment is the acquisition and spread of knowledge, men who look far above earthly things, whose banner is Excelsior!

Gentlemen, let us honor the artist; let us thank him, let us drink his health!

Michael McKubre at ICCF-21

LENR consultant and former Director of Energy Research at SRI International Michael McKubre presented at the 21st International Conference on Condensed Matter Nuclear Science held at Colorado State University in Fort Collins Colorado. The five-day conference ran June 3-8, 2018 and featured multiple groups reporting solid results in the generation of excess heat and transmutations.

Several labs are regularly able to produce between 6-20 Watts excess thermal power and are now experimenting with the various parameters in order to determine how to scale that output up. There were several theory sessions and more theories presented, but no consensus on modeling features of the reaction was determined.

In episode 13 of the Cold Fusion Now! podcast, we join Michael McKubre just starting his talk on Monday morning June 4 with The Fleischmann Pons Heat and Ancillary Effects: What Do We Know, and Why? How Might We Proceed?

Melvin Miles on the Cold Fusion Now! podcast

Dr. Melvin Miles is the guest on the Cold Fusion Now! podcast with Ruby Carat episode 12. Dr. Miles is an electro-chemist and LENR experimentalist who in 1990 discovered a relationship between the heat production in cold fusion cells with the production of helium, confirming the nuclear nature of the elusive reaction.

He spent two years at Dixie College (now Dixie State University), then received a Bachelor’s degree at Brigham Young University and a Ph.D at the University of Utah in Physical Chemistry, minoring in Physics. Following his degree, he was awarded a NATO fellowship to work as a postdoc for one year with Dr. Heinz Gerischer in Munich, Germany.

Melvin Miles was a Navy electro-chemist specializing in batteries at the China Lake research lab in 1989 when the cold fusion announcement occurred. He had difficulty reproducing the Fleischmann-Pons Heat Effect – until September of 1989. He reported the result to the Department of Energy DoE, then writing a report on the phenomenon, yet the November 1989 DoE has Dr. Miles listed as a negative on reproduction, as they refused to change their record of his response. He went on to measure helium as a nuclear product from active cold fusion cells producing excess heat in 1990.

D. Miles has challenged the American Chemical Society’s The Journal of Physical Chemistry ban on publishing cold fusion papers by proposing several mainstream referees to review one of his papers.

He has also published a collection of Letters from Martin Fleischmann to Melvin Miles, documenting sixteen years of collaboration between himself and Martin Fleischmann, who along with Stanley Pons, discovered the Anomalous Excess Heat Effect known as cold fusion.

Vladimir Vysotskii on the Cold Fusion Now! podcast

Dr. Vladimir I. Vysotskii is a Nuclear Physicist and Head of Theoretical Radiophysics Department at Kiev National Shevchenko University, Ukraine. He received a Ph.D. in Theoretical Physics from Kiev Institute of Theoretical physics, and a second Doctorate in Theoretical and Solid State Physics. His areas of research and applications is wide, from lasers to bio-physics.

Dr. Vysotskii’s first theoretical article in the field of cold fusion “Reactions of controlled fusion in crystal targets” was published in 1981 in the Soviet journal of Technical Physics, that is 8 years before the appearance of the term “cold fusion” giving him more than 35 years experience in this area. He participated and made presentations at the first LENR conference in 1990 in Provo at Brigham-Young University and he has subsequently participated in almost all ICCF conferences.

Dr. Vysotskii’s work in LENR is both theoretical and experimental, reporting stunning results of transmutations within living systems in a LENR environment. He is the author of many scientific books including, with Dr. Alla Kornilova, Nuclear Transmutation of Stable and Radioactive Isotopes in Biological Systems.
