Reshaping The Album

Similar in appearance to the cryoscope, the upcoming release of a label sampler by Clown & Sunset will be an aluminum cube they are calling The Prism. The sampler's title, Don't Break My Love, is taken from a song of the same title by experimental electronic artist Nicola Jaar. The two headphone jacks as the album's output are intended to encourage a shared listening experience.


As sales of the main physical music format (CD's) have fallen, some labels have resorted to deluxe releases but this release is more about the aesthetic than the commercial. It is the re-imagining of the form in which music can be released—the album as a physical work of art that can be admired aesthetically as well as aurally.  BP

(Note: The Prism doesn't levitate like in this video but it's still cool.)
