In their ongoing mission to forever turn listeners’ brains to shit (I mean that in the best way possible), the mindfuck electronic duo Autechre is releasing their two collaborative EPs with The Hafler Trio together in a package titled ah3eo & ha3oe (has a nice ring to it, eh?). The double DVD release features four hours of experimental material recorded in 5.1 surround sound, in both Dolby Digital and DTS. According to a press release, in order to experience the music as intended you will need a 5.1 surround amplifier and speaker setup (a DTS ready system if you wish for the best quality experience), a DVD player capable of playing PAL-format video (or capable of converting PAL to NTSC format), a nuclear fusion reactor, the Staff of Ra, Dilithium crystals, and 100 sacrificial lambs offered to the god of fire Xiuhtecuhtli. A television or video monitor is recommended, but optional.
The release will be issued as a limited edition of only 1000 copies by Die Stadt and Simply Superior on September 29. Finally, a Zaireeka for the exclusively wealthy (eat your heart out Wayne Coyne)!
