Thinking outside inside the box

First death metal band Unfathomable Ruination performed inside a box as part of an art installation, and now PJ Harvey's announced plans to take it a step further:  "Harvey has chosen to record her ninth album inside an architectural installation designed by Somerset House-based Something & Son. The structure, a recording studio in the form of an enclosed box, has one-way glazing, displaying PJ Harvey, her band, producers and engineers as a mutating, multi-dimensional sound sculpture." A bit of a wanky way of saying you can buy a ticket to watch her at work. I'll forgive her the pretentiousness if the results are even halfway as good as Let England Shake.
