On Friday, September 13, 2019, Dani Shivers (Tijuana, MX) will release her third album Half Ghost which will conclude a trilogy started with LPs Jinx and Syzygy. Dani continues her childish incantations and goes towards darker and minimal lands.
Vinyl edition of this third album is accompanied by a metal module, which once folded by its owner, becomes a 16-sided mirror carousel and reveals an animation with the label of the disc during its reading : a cat running, in tears, and another cat who hands him a handkerchief in the other direction.
The module is inspired by the praxinoscope presented at the 1878 World's Fair in Paris: a toy giving the illusion of movement and operating on the principle of optical compensation. This fascinating process has already been used with children's discs in the 1950s by the brands Teddy, Red Raven and Moviton.
Additional infos: a title is present on a hidden track of side A / the disc and the module are Made in France (co-produced with Mâchefer) / a limited box of the trilogy is now available with the 3 albums, an exclusive 5’ single, a 59x84cm poster and an optical Ouija circle on the box cover / the pre-order of the LP and the box is available here
