Seminal electronic artists, film soundtrackers, former Björk band members and sonic craftsmen Plaid have announced the release of `Scintilli', their new album.
The CD will be available in a `Muda na Mono' puzzle pack (as shown). It contains two die-cut rings and a CD which can be assembled. If correctly aligned, the sphere created allows the track titles to be read. The packaging reflects a desire to give the CD an ornamental function, beyond its primary use as a basic storage device for music.
The vinyl format is limited to 400 copies in the UK.
The album, the band's first `proper' studio album for eight years, positions Plaid as not only master craftsmen of electronic textures and beats but also as keen purveyors of emotionally affecting soundtracks.
