Singer-turned-novelist launches iPhone app for new book
Nick Cave has released a soundtrack to accompany his new book ‘The Death Of Bunny Munro’.
Fans can hear the soundtrack on the audio version of the book, which is available to buy from the iPhone App Store now.
As well as the audiobook featuring the soundtrack, the app includes an enhanced e-book and videos of Cave reading ‘The Death Of Bunny Munro’.
Cave worked with his long-time musical collaborator Warren Ellis on the soundtrack, which was produced and sound-directed by artists Iain Forsyth and Jane Pollard.
“The fact that the reader can choose his or her own experience is interesting because the true meaning of a book lies in the reader’s own interpretation and the circumstances of that interpretation,” said Cave.
Speaking of the soundtrack, Forsyth and Pollard remarked that the project offers users a 3D listening experience.
“We’ve not heard anything like this before – the result sits somewhere between a film soundtrack, a radio play and an hallucination.”
‘The Death Of Bunny Munro’ app is exclusively available to iPhone and iPod Touch users now, ahead of the hardback version of the book, which is published on September 9.
