In what could be a world-first, Australian art rockers Regurgitator will record their fifth album in a customized glass recording studio in Melbourne's Federation Square.

The band members will not leave the 10 meter square "bubble" for 21 days during August. Food will be delivered to the studio, and screened-off toilet and shower facilities are to be installed within it.

Broadcaster Channel [V] Australia will transmit their activities. They will be joined in the studio by their producer Magoo, sound engineer Hugh Webb and Channel [V] presenter Jabba.

This is not the first time that Regurgitator have experimented with studios. Their hit 1995 debut album for Warner Music "Tu Plang" (Thai for "Jukebox") was recorded in a rural studio outside Bangkok in Thailand. The follow up album "Unit" was recorded in a condemned inner city warehouse in the band's hometown of Brisbane; the building was demolished the day after recording finished.

Guitarist and singer Quan Yeoman says the concept was inspired by American illusionist David Blaine, whom he saw suspended in a perspex box over the Thames River during a visit to London last year.

The album, due in November, will be released through independent label Valve, which is owned by the band's manager Paul Curtis. Regurgitator will invest about A$60,000 ($42,000) in the project, which will have additional sponsorship from pay-TV network Foxtel, telecoms group Optus and games manufacturer X-Box, for whom the band has recorded new tracks.
