Listen and Purchase

UMN (The Red Turtle) is Arthur King's improvised composition and performance inspired by Michaël Dudok de Wit's 2016 animated fantasy The Red Turtle. It was performed and recorded live at The River LA on May 24, 2023.

For this particular performance, Arthur King is Carla Azar, David Ralicke, M.A. Tiesenga, Senon Williams, and Peter Walker. The album was recorded by Andy Petr and Jennifer Kraus, produced and mixed by Peter Walker and KamranV, and mastered by Phil Feinman and KamranV. The movie was selected by dublab’s Alejandro Cohen.

Further engaging the concepts of adaptation and musical connectivity –– and adventurous experimentation –– this release is encoded using the dublab Quadraphonic Universally Accessible Resource Kit (QUARK), enabling seamless quadraphonic or binaural listening via standard 2-channel playback, immersive hi-fi receivers, or computer.

This album is quad immersive via all formats: digital download, streaming (Spotify, SoundCloud, YouTube, etc), radio broadcast, cassette tape and high-resolution Dolby Atmos (Apple Music, Tidal, Amazon HD).
