While many of you—including, well, us—may not have $595 burning a big hole in your pocket, we’ve gotta hand it to A.M. Architect for its ridiculously ambitious “audiovisual album” Color Field. Available in both a standard digital edition and limited “Spectrasphere”, the record is the latest bar-raising effort from Deru and EFFIXX’s new 79Ancestors imprint, a “cross-disciplinary label for artists working at the intersection of music composition, performance art, cinema, and code.” According to a press release, the Color Field design object “plays the album and emits colorful waves of light which can be modulated with visual effects by controlling a series of knobs.” Its also loosely inspired by the “color therapy” instruments that are featured in a corresponding short film we’re psyched to premiere below.

From the Spectra Institute’s automated answering service: “It is time to face your fears, your weaknesses, your doubts, sadness, anger, resentments, envy, and jealousy. You need to give in order to receive. Let go of what is making you sick through the cleansing light process.”
