Hi, this is my debut album Balun! In addition to a standard digital release I wanted to create something that doesn't necessarily fit into the traditional record format.
So, my friends at Novalia and I have made the world's first LP shaped audio poster using technology enabled by integration of conductive ink, capacitive touch and conventional electronics to provide a musical experience in a new format, combining science, design and music. When touched the poster plays the songs of the album through a built in speaker and includes buttons for volume up and down!
Available for a limited time and number only. The package also includes four 'pillow stickers' so you can attach the poster to the wall without damaging it.
Here's a video to illustrate the functions of the audio poster:
I love old formats like the cassette and the vinyl record. But not everyone uses boom boxes or decks. I hope this Balun poster shows one example of how music can become physical again with the help of new technology and elaborate ideas.

*The poster needs three AAA batteries to power which are not included in order to keep p&p to a minimum.
