Escardrone Album to Benefit Puerto Rico

Source: Escardrone is a 43-track album of strange sounds that is best decribed by its creator: “What is Escardrone? Only a revolutionary way to listen to music. Tiny solar-powered turntables are mounted on snails and set loose in your garden. Turn any outdoor space into a music hall. The basic kit comes with 10 snails, 10 turntable systems, and your choice of 15 mini records. Choose from the tracks above: download them all to sample.”

All proceeds go to UNICEF to help out families impacted by the recent hurricane in Puerto Rico.
