QUARKS 3, the third album in the QUARKS series of EPs by Abigail Foster’s Photosynthesis Machine, was released on Arbacarba Records (ARB-019) on FRIDAY SEPTEMBER 3 2021. This installment of QUARKS was written & recorded in New Zealand between 2020-2021 and features Abigail Foster’s Photosynthesis Machine leader Justin Hoenke collaborating on a number of pieces with his two children, Aero & Finn. QUARKS 3 will be available to stream on all major streaming platforms (Spotify, Apple Music, YouTube, Amazon, etc) and will be available to purchase as an audio download at: 


“QUARKS has always been a family affair. It was my wife Haley who had the original idea for me to put out all of these short songs that I’m always recording. She put this whole series in motion. As our kids get older they get more involved in the tunes because I’m writing and recording them as we’re all hanging out in the living room. The next natural step is to get them involved in the fun that I have with music.”


“QUARKS 1 was all about recreating the experience I had flipping through cable TV channels as a child. QUARKS 2 was some kind of attempt to make a semi-understandable song and sound collage.  QUARKS 3 brings elements from the first two installments together and introduces bizarre characters, weirdo locations, and some form of an overarching storyline in a weird alternate universe that lives in my head.”
