The press release explains her latest non-album project so well, that I will simply copy and paste:

On April 28th, Time Out and Deaf Dumb and Blind Recordings release Ellen Allien - The Other Side Berlin. The fourth installment in the Other Side series features the critically acclaimed Ms. Allien’s personal guide to Berlin’s sights, sites and sounds. Her diverse audio tour includes tracks from the infamous Detroit techno innovators Carl Craig and Plastikman, Germany’s funky minimal Bookashade, David Bowie’s German rendition of Heroes (Helden) & Ellen’s own track from her latest release Orchestra of Bubbles.

A hometown hero, Ellen Allien started the BPitch Control Party Series and founded the ubercool label BPitch Control Records. On her 2 hour-plus DVD, Ellen shows you her personal Other Side of the city she knows and loves.

With the Other Side, a new generation of immersive travel guide is upon us. Deaf Dumb & Blind Communications, a new progressive and multi-faceted entertainment company, teams up with internationally recognized travel guidebook and weekly magazine publisher Time Out to produce a series called The Other Side — an CD/DVD experience that submerses its listeners/viewers entirely below the city’s surface.

Each volume of The Other Side boasts two key elements: a mixed CD compiled by a native audio pioneer and a DVD guide that acts as a visual handbook for both the seasoned traveler and armchair adventurer alike. While some travel guides aim to be comprehensive, The Other Side isn’t concerned. It simply wants its user to enjoy and discover the very best and coolest in sight and sounds. It whispers in the user’s ear advice on where to go and what to see — and it does it with unprecedented style and flair.

That’s why Time Out is a perfect match for Deaf Dumb & Blind’s concept. According to Peter Fiennes, Editorial/Managing Director of Time Out Guides, “We're extremely happy to be working with The Other Side and Deaf Dumb & Blind on this exciting new concept. We've always been keen to expand into music, CDs and travel on DVD, but The Other Side gives us the chance to do it all at the same time. The Other Side has lined up some great artists and we're convinced this will be a very successful and ground-breaking project.”

That said...who wants to move to Berlin with me?
