On August 8th, 2009 Picture palace music performed at the Stadtbad Steglitz in Berlin, a drained Art Nouveau style architectured public bath. On this occasion, the band released the album Natatorium. While the first five tracks of the album were especially composed for the event (and formed the first set of the evening), the last track is one more outtake from the (yet unreleased) soundtrack for the Faust movie.


Two weeks after its initial release on CD-R the album became available as download from the PPM web shop as well.


Due to its great success, the album was re-released by the German EM label Syngate in December 2009, again on CD-R. By now, there has been no proper CD release of this album.
