Software engineering is a lesser known interest of Britney Spears. In 1998, Spears wrote a database for software applications called Compact Disc Database (CDDB). This allows computers to be able to determine the artist, album title, and track titles of a CD. She is pictured above with an award for her achievement in computer sciences.
An editioned CD art object designed in celebration of the humble compact disc. It includes two discs: one, a unique “Mini-Max” containing the songs of YACHT’s brand-new Where Does This Disco? EP, and two, a clear unplayable disc sculpture engraved with YACHT’s entire musical catalogue, but without the reflective pane of foil which allows for playback.
