Mouse on Mars

Mouse on Mars’ return with Dimensional People, their most inventive album to date. After a series of notorious dance floor releases, Dimensional People finds the duo working deep within their own vernacular of digital and acoustic experimentation, and charismatically making elemental components new again. A number of prolific guests joined the production: Justin Vernon (Bon Iver), Zach Condon (Beirut), Spank Rock, Aaron and Bryce Dessner (The National), Swamp Dogg, Eric D. Clark, Lisa Hannigan, Amanda Blank, Sam Amidon, Ensemble Musikfabrik, and about 20 more musical collaborators.



Dimensional People, initially titled new konstruktivist socialism, gives each guest a platform to make their imprint as whoever or whatever they want to be: a narrator, a perfect moment, a jam, an ensemble member, an abstract sound, a multiple persona, a mood, a soloist. Originally premiering as a spatial composition using object-based mixing technology playing with the possibilities of sonic design and collective musicianship, the recording expands upon these ideas. Dimensional People expresses itself as a dynamic 50-piece orchestra, telling a story in sound. Each player is a multifaceted character, the recording an imagined stage, and the production is direction, lighting, and setting changes.
