On March 29th, 2014, at a remote High Desert location in California, former Red Hot Chili Peppers guitarist John Frusciante’s new album ‘Enclosure’ was loaded onto an experimental Cube Satellite called Sat-JF14 and launched into space aboard an Interorbital Systems’ Neptune Modular Rocket.
Beginning now, fans from around the world can download the free, custom-built Sat-JF14 mobile application developed by Frusciante’s longtime label Record Collection and leading Brazilian Creative Agency, Loducca. This app will enable users to track Sat-JF14’s movement in real time. When Sat-JF14 hovers over a users’ geographic region, ‘Enclosure’ will be unlocked, allowing users to listen to the album for free on any iOS or Android mobile device. Sat – JF14 also supports an integrated social chat platform giving fans the ability to communicate with one another after listening to the music. The album preview will last until midnight on April 7th, at which point Sat-JF14 will cease transmission.
“This partnership with John Frusciante, Record Collection and Loducca represents a new chapter in our quest to further explore the cosmic relationship between science and art,” says Randa Milliron, Interorbital Systems co-founder and CEO. “’Enclosure’ is a musical masterpiece and we’re thrilled to be able to utilize our proprietary space technology to facilitate this unprecedented form of space-enhanced distribution.”
On April 8th, 2014, Record Collection will release ‘Enclosure’, the 11th full-length album from John Frusciante.
