Balun

by Cornelia

/
  • 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.

    Love
    Cornelia

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

Track Name: How Far Pt 1
Oh how far did you go
Oh how far did you go

She said
come back another day
I do want you, just not today
Hold back. Be strong. If you can wait
I do want to
it’s not too late

Oh how far did you go
Oh how far did you go

He said
Time is too short to waste
I’ll give when you’re prepared to take
One day life will flash before your eyes
Make it worthwhile
Don’t apologise

Oh how far did you go
Oh how far did you go
Track Name: Cruising
Cruising
I’ve been
tearing us apart
I’ve been
all over the tease
selfish prey
selfish life
I want to live
on display

Cruising
I keep
disconnecting the dots
I keep
one foot on the slip
led astray
pulled aside
by those who give
lost my way
Track Name: Birthright
Don't you worry bout a thing
Mum and dad'll be chipping in
please just tell us where you've been
you can make it if

Fresh out of college
into the cold light
no job no money
to claim your birthright

Don't you worry times will change
Mister prime minister said
there'll be plenty jobs one day
you can make it if

Fresh out of college
into the cold light
no job no money
to claim your birthright
Fresh out of college

Claim your birthright
Claim your birthright

Fresh out of college
into the cold light
no job no money
to claim your birthright
Fresh out of college
into the cold light
no job no money
to claim your birthright
Fresh out of college

Don't you worry bout a thing
Mum and dad'll be chipping in
please just tell us where you've been
you can make it if
Track Name: Not in Love
Pure design
unique like a jewel
but sorry sorry
I am not in love with you

Most refined
you're so pretty it’s cruel
but sorry sorry
I am not in love with you

I am not in love with you
I am not in love with you
I am not in love with you
hey hey
I'm not in love

On a blank
piece of paper I'll sign
hardly any work
surely worth a try

Who would blame me
your looks are divine
and if there’s any sign of drive
underneath that halo-istic smile
this one night trip might just be worth the while

You're divine
Aaah
pure design
Aaah

I am not in love with you
I am not in love with you
I am not in love with you
hey hey
hey hey

hey hey

You're divine
Aaah
pure design
Aaah

I am not in love in love with you
I am not in love with you
I am not in love with you
hey hey
hey hey

I am not in love with you

Mmmm

I am not in love with you

hey hey
hey hey
Track Name: Oh Well
Oh well
good things do disappear
with time
Consider the big picture here

Assess
We're in a war zone now
fought by
one force
the only one to persevere

Oh well

Look at me now
standing on your doorstep
I've packed my bags
and you kiss me on my forehead
whatever you're trying to tell me
I'd rather just ignore it
I don't know the right words
what's the language for it

Oh well
Oh well
Oh well

Oh well
Make it a quick good bye
We tried
But it could not survive

Some day
we'll meet in a hallway still
where you'll say
hope you are good and keeping well?

Oh well

Look at me now
standing on your doorstep
I've packed my bags
and you kiss me on my forehead
whatever you're trying to tell me
I'd rather just ignore it
I don't know the right words
what's the language for it

Oh well
Oh well
Oh well
Track Name: Trust
I spend a lot of time
I’ve seen so many places

but walking down the line
Have we left a trace yet

Run by youth
rolling forth like the sea
come back through
a lot of you in me
All this time
and what it says of us
The wound is wide
The world is made to trust

I heard so many voices
caught between the pebble and the stone

they rise up
different choices different tones

a collar for my bones

a collar for my bones
a collar for my bones
a collar for my bones

Run by youth
rolling forth like the sea
come back through
a lot of you in me
All this time
and what it says of us
The wound is wide
The world is made to trust

trust
trust
trust
trust

trust
