The next album from JG Thirlwell’s Manorexia project is being released in 5.1 surround sound. Dinoflagellate Blooms is a double disc album, with one disc carrying the 5.1 surround sound, the other in stereo.
For those listeners without the requisite speaker array, there will be a free listening event at Harvestworks New York on 22 June, as part of the New York Electronic Arts Festival, where the album will be played in its entirety at 7:15pm and again at 8:30pm. Thirlwell notes: “A dinoflagellate is a small plankton-like aquatic creature. Dinoflagellate blooms is the term for when the dinoflagellate create an algae that turns the surface of the sea red.” More info here.
