Marc Sloan - Dime Social (2010) is the album prior to "Portraits of the Musician As Forever Moonlight" (2013). It is Sloan's introduction of the acoustic guitar and vocals into the 'Sloan' genre. It's indicative of a re-direct of compositional focus for traditional to avante-garde electro acoustic exploration.

Pablo Shine - Percussion Pablo Shine was born in Santurce, Puerto Rico in 1961 a gifted conguero and prolific painter. His work is in private collections in the Hudson Valley area, New York City, London, Japan and San Juan, Puerto Rico. His most recent work is the result of a process of exploration that was triggered a few years ago by getting reacquainted with Afro-Caribbean music, mainly with the rhythm and dance of Bomba and Plena from his native Puerto Rico and the Rumba and Santeria music of their sister island Cuba. Playing these African based rhythms, he began to be inspired to paint images that relate to the folklore, culture and the tropical beauty found in the lush and vibrant flora of Puerto Rico.
