    Re: Bjork

    I love Bjork to death! To me she is one of the greatest musical geniuses in the world. I love just about everything she does. There aren't too many artists that have dozens and dozens of songs that I not just like, but love.

    I have a huge playlist in my windows media player with all her songs that I listen to almost daily. Her music is very weird, especially her videos and I love it. A genius can't be like everybody else and be a genius!

    I'm glad there are others here on jub that feel just as strongly about Bjork and her music. She is a true original.

    I'm looking forward to her forthcoming Biophilia project.

    Mostly enjoy her older stuff. Her last album was a disappointment. Her much hyped collaboration with Timbaland was superficial at best.

    These covers are very interesting by the way.

    Bjork 'halfway through' new album and planning tour

    Bjork has said that she is halfway through finishing her new album - and hopes to play live before 2011 ends.

    Speaking to Icelandic newspaper Fréttablaðið, the singer said work was well underway the follow-up to 2007’s 'Volta' and alluded to a tour plan for later in the year.


    "Hopefully I will be able to be on tour in the fall," she said.

    She also said she was wary of giving too many details about the album away, adding: "I have had some bad experiences with a number of things before. I'm very superstitious. I go into the studio with a plan to go do what I have in mind, and then the idea is half dead."

    The singer revealed one of her new songs is inspired by experiences she'd had after attending a conference organised by National Geographic magazine.

    "I saw 100 talks and met eccentric people who had been in Africa for four years with lions and insects," she said. "Then one night after drinking whiskey with them I began to hear stories. This is one of the collaborations I can talk about."

    One of the most beautiful visions (the song moreso than the video) ever...

    "I go through all this before you wake up..." that sentiment pierces me...
    the imagery she creates with the song lyrics is stunning...
    "We live on a mountain, right at the top..."

    Björk’s Karaoke Protest:

    Icelandic singer Bjork held a three-day karaoke marathon to help protest a Canadian company’s takeover of a power plant in her country. Reportedly, Vancouver-based Magma Energy Corp. recently boosted its stake in Iceland’s HS Orka power plant. During the karaoke event, Björk and her supporters circulated a petition that calls for the government to consider revoking the takeover. The petition, which reportedly has more than 45,000 signatures, states, “For 100 years, good people protected our natural resources and public interest. [Then] the sale of natural resources and irresponsible access to them began. Now it is time to stop that unfortunate development.” Magma Energy declined a request for comment by The Associated Press but has in the past defend its deal in Iceland.

    Re: Bjork

    When two completely singular voices link up to record together, it can be a fascinating thing. Omar Souleyman is a Syrian musician whose music draws from a number of traditional Arabic styles but also uses dance beats and synthesizers. The American label Sublime Frequencies has released a few of his records in the West, and his live shows have been drawing rapturous reviews recently. And now we've learned that he's recorded a collaboration with Björk.

    Souleyman and Björk's collaborative project will be available on limited 12", CD, and digital download sometime this year. According to a press release, it's "the first-ever major western pop release to feature Syrian dabke and Iraqi choubi music."

    Thank you for the Björk news I was unaware of all of it! Count me in as a huge fan since The Sugarcubes. "Life's Too Good" was the first CD I ever bought. I'm drooling at the thought of a new album!

    Re: Bjork

    Björk has announced a series of UK shows planned as part of this year's Manchester International Festival, during which she will preview material from her forthcoming album, Biophilia.

    A press release describes Biophilia as not only an album but also "A multi-media project encompassing music, apps, internet, installations and live shows". Her six-show, three-week residency at Manchester's Campfield Market Hall will feature her performing with collaborators as well; the festival will also assist Björk in bringing the Biophilia performances to other cities after the Manchester residency. Also, the press release outlines an intriguingly strange assortment of instruments that will be used for the show: "a bespoke digitally-controlled pipe organ; a 30 foot pendulum that harnesses the earth's gravitational pull to create musical patterns-- creating a unique bridge between the ancient and the modern; a bespoke gamelan-celeste hybrid; and a one-off extraordinary pin barrel harp." Cool.

    You might remember hearing about Biophilia in the beginning of the year, when a new iPad app titled Solar System, featuring a three-minute instrumental taken from the project, was unveiled. Well, NME reports that Björk has pulled a Gorillaz and partly recorded the new record on an iPad, and plans to release the record as a series of apps for the electronic device. In other words: keep your fingers crossed for a Björk-ified Angry Birds! Check out the dates for the residency below.

    06-30 Manchester, England - Campfield Market Hall
    07-03 Manchester, England - Campfield Market Hall
    07-07 Manchester, England - Campfield Market Hall
    07-10 Manchester, England - Campfield Market Hall
    07-13 Manchester, England - Campfield Market Hall
    07-16 Manchester, England - Campfield Market Hall

    Björk Reteams With Michel Gondry for Video Starring Marker, Eraser, and Clapboard


    Björk managed to stun her legions of adoring fans today when she posted an image on her official Facebook page (pictured on the right) of a clapper board with the name of her newest single "Crystalline," which will be included on her new full-length album Biophilia, due out later this summer. It also bears director Michel Gondry's name. Next to it lies a red marker with a bundle of tape wrapped around the end and an eraser.

    As you may already know, Björk and Gondry have a long history of making music videos together -- having worked on "Bachelorette," "Hyperballad,"and "Declare Independence," to name a few. All of which have gone beyond the norm of what is usually presented as a music video. No two are ever the same and this one proves to be no exception.


    Gondry, who is known for his quirky, childlike take on directing, stuns us with what will inevitably be three-and-a-half minutes of this scene with some flashing lights and yarn thrown in for good measure. As shown recently on Hipster Runoff, Björk, like her native homeland, has fallen into something of a budget crisis, which is fine considering the arts-and-crafts approach of Gondry's videos.

    The video shown below will help to give some insight into the duo's creative process, which is reminiscent of a first-grade classroom:

    Björk To Special Guest At Iceland Airwaves

    Björk has been added to the lineup of performers set to appear at 2011's Iceland Airwaves along with another slew of hometown performances for this Icelandic pop star.

    At the festival, which takes place October 12-16, Björk will be performing new tracks, soon to be released on her upcoming Biophilia album. The show will include 24 female backing vocalists, an array of hand-crafted instruments, and a bespoke digitally-controlled pipe organ. This last instrument is "a 30 foot pendulum that harnesses the earth's gravitational pull to create musical patterns." So yeah, naturally Björk has one of those.

    The other bands on the billing include Beach House, Tune-Yards, Austra, SBTRKT, and many more that you can check out at the festival's webpage.

    So if you happen to be in Iceland at the time, or are just ready for a vacation, make plans to see Björk and her crazy happenings. Oh, and get there early. First 400 get in free!

    Björk's special Biophelia show appearances will happen on these dates:

    10/12 @ Iceland Airwaves (Harpa - Reykjavík Concert Hall)

    10/16 @ Iceland Airwaves (Harpa - Reykjavík Concert Hall)

    10/19 @ Harpa - Reykjavík Concert Hall

    10/22 @ Harpa - Reykjavík Concert Hall

    10/25 @ Harpa - Reykjavík Concert Hall

    10/28 @ Harpa - Reykjavík Concert Hall

    Björk's special Biophilia Shows At Iceland Airwaves are sold out


    Tickets for the special Björk Biophilia shows at Iceland Airwaves sold out today as soon as they went on sale. For a week prior Iceland Airwaves tickets holders had a chance to buy tickets on presale. Björk will perform six shows in Iceland in October, two of them at Iceland Airwaves. People need not despair because we have 200 tickets to each of the Iceland Airwaves shows available for wristband holders on a "first come, first served" basis on the day of each show. We'll inform you later on how exactly this will go down.

    The dates for Björk's Biophilia shows in Iceland are:
    October:
    Wed 12 @ Iceland Airwaves (Harpa - Reykjavík Concert Hall) - SOLD OUT
    Sun 16 @ Iceland Airwaves (Harpa - Reykjavík Concert Hall) - SOLD OUT
    Wed 19 @ Harpa - Reykjavík Concert Hall
    Sat 22 @ Harpa - Reykjavík Concert Hall - SOLD OUT
    Tue 25 @ Harpa - Reykjavík Concert Hall
    Fri 28 @ Harpa - Reykjavík Concert Hall - SOLD OUT

    Doors open at 18.00 and show starts at 20.00. Pick-up for purchased tickets will be at Harpa - Reykjavík Concert Hall.

    For tickets for the shows on Oct 19 and 25 go here. Icelandair also has some tickets to all Björk shows that they sell with packages.

    For these six special shows, Björk will be performing new songs from the forthcoming Biophilia studio album as well as music from her genre-defying back catalogue with a group of unique musical collaborators and a choir of 24 girls. The show will feature a range of specially conceived and crafted instruments, among them a bespoke digitally-controlled pipe organ; a 30 foot pendulum that harnesses the earth's gravitational pull to create musical patterns - creating a unique bridge between the ancient and the modern and a bespoke gamelan-celeste hybrid. These devices reveal some of the physical processes that are the subject matter of the songs.

    In connection with the performances, an exhibition demonstrating the visuals, sounds and viruses of the world of Biophilia will be opened. It will run from October 10 to 28 in Harpa Music Hall. Educational programs for schoolchildren will also be linked to these performances.

    Cosmogony is the second track of Björk’s Biophilia that has found its way to the internet. No sick breakdown in Cosmogony like in Crystalline, but beautiful nonetheless. The Mother App for Biophilia drops tomorrow; you can watch the introduction to the App below which features David Attenborough.

    AIM announce recipients of Outstanding Contribution to Music and Pioneer Awards: Björk and Laurence Bell (Domino Recording Company) to be honoured


    The inaugural AIM Independent Music Awards, taking place this November in London, will recognise and celebrate the artists, labels, companies and individuals at the heart of this thriving music sector. Today, the Association of Independent Music (AIM) unveil two of the recipients of the fourteen awards who will be honoured at the ceremony hosted by BBC 6 Music’s Steve Lamacq and Radio 1’s Huw Stephens at Floridita in Soho, London on Thursday 10th November 2011.

    The Outstanding Contribution to Music award, in association with eMusic, recognises an artist who continues to influence and inspire with their work. The judging panel, comprised of the UK’s most informed music critics and tastemakers, have bestowed this honour in the first year of the awards on the uncompromising and uniquely talented Björk.

    In a career spanning more than 20 years, the singer-songwriter with a truly distinctive voice and attitude has continuously displayed the characteristics that sets the independent music sector apart from its peers – embracing and exploring new technology, supporting and mentoring new talent and a dedication to realising artistic visions without compromise or concession. Signed to the independent record label One Little Indian since her time as a member of the Sugarcubes, Björk continues to push boundaries with her work and continues to create music that inspires and influences music fans, other artists and the wider music business.

    dear folks

    i would like to explain why my album is coming out later than was first intended

    after humongous and fun adventurous work with the app builders we handed in the music for the app box last may i felt sonically it fitted that underworld of apps and virtual reality like a glove , kinda acoustic and clean with a slick dark sub but somehow the cd needed more blood and muscles , oxygen and stuff

    i felt the album had different kinda growth potential than the app box and it is important to follow those hunches even though they are slippery and you don't know sometimes where they are taking you

    i played biophilia for few weeks in manchester and some of the songs grew while playing them live and i decided to add some of this into the album , i ended up even using a live recording of one of the songs on the album . take my hunch the whole distance but in order to do that i had to put the album back a bit

    my friend , the incredibly talented music maker leila arab came to iceland with no notice and added some sonic sculpting , especially to the bottom end and the great talented mastering engineer mandy parnell came over as well and helped me give the whole thing more warmth and flesh somehow

    i am really happy i did this , seems like biophilia the album has a body

    leila also introduced me to "current value" who now has put a new beat into one of the songs

    hope you like it

    warmth , björk

    the 'moon' app is a musical sequencer that explores the similarities between the cycles of the moon and tides with sequences in music. change the phase of the moon to control the number of notes, and change the phase of the pearls to alter their pitch.

    Re: Bjork

    First Listen: Björk, 'Biophilia'

    Björk is not one for half measures: When she embarks on a new project, it's guaranteed to be a fully conceived artistic statement. For more than two decades, the Icelandic pop musician has created album after album of genre-bending, globe-spanning, forward-thinking songs with oversized intentions and flair that's distinctly her own. Björk has been similarly imaginative in other media, too; in her wild, colorful costuming and bizarre hairstyles, and in her mind-blowing music videos. There's no one else out there quite like her.

    So it's fitting that Biophilia, Björk's latest and most ambitious project yet, began as a collection of songs written around themes of nature, science and humanity's relationships to both. For most artists, that'd be a lofty enough concept on its own. But Björk heavily researched astrophysics, string theory, neurology, biology and other areas where science and music meet. Her big ideas didn't stop there.

    She also wanted people to explore inside the music and ultimately collaborate with it. For Biophilia, she'd originally envisioned a musical house — like a museum, she's said — wherein people could roam from room to room, with each interactive space designated to a different song. Later, she envisioned an IMAX film experience with visionary filmmaker Michel Gondry. When both of those ideas fell through, Björk commissioned an iPad app with which users can manipulate her music with various games, remix it and further understand the scientific and musical principles behind each song. It's a lot like her idea for the musical house, but in a digital environment. It's also just the kind of bonkers vision that Björk would be drawn to, and if it all works, it ought to be ingenious and tons of fun.

    That said, for all the talk of the app, the biggest danger is that the songs themselves might end up being secondary to the grander statement. But, isolated from the iPad, Biophilia's songs are astounding. With a project like this, you might expect the music to be buried in layers of instruments — as on Björk's last album, the hyper-charged Volta. Instead, Biophilia benefits from being pared-down and minimalist. Each work focuses on a specific set of non-traditional instruments (no guitar, no piano) that serve as the backbone for each track. Amid rumbling synths, regal horn passages and crisply plucked string sequences, Björk uses specially made instruments like a "gravity harp," a Tesla coil, a group of pendulums and the clanging "gameleste," a hybrid of gamelan and celesta, played remotely with an iPad.

    She also employed the iPad's touchscreen interface to create many of the glitchy digital sounds and skittering, chopped-up beats. Björk has explained that it helped her rethink her own natural tendencies. "All my songs end up being 83 BPM," she recently told Wired magazine, "which is the speed I walk. I felt stuck. I was writing most of my songs in 4/4: verse, chorus, verse, chorus." As on another previous album, Medulla — on which each instrument was crafted from a voice or vocal sample — Björk's self-imposed constraint has actually opened her up to a more spacious songwriting style. These songs have room to breathe, employing space and silence as much as melody and harmony. The sparse instrumentation and arrangements become gorgeously intricate meditations on which to build.

    Yet at the heart of Biophilia is, of course, Björk's iconic, haunting voice. Vocal melodies unfurl more like transcendent devotionals than typical verses, and become even more stirring when accompanied by a chorus of voices that could fill a cathedral. Still, even as Björk chants and sings of nature, biology and the origins of the universe, songs like "Cosmogony" and "Moon" remain intimate and affecting by using scientific ideas as metaphors for universal sentiments. "Like a virus, patient hunter, I'm waiting for you, I'm starving for you," she sings in "Virus."

    There's much to unpack with Biophilia; it takes many listens to grasp what's happening. For many, Björk's music can be strange and challenging, and it might not connect with everyone. But it's hard to deny her admirable and inspiring devotion to pushing the envelope musically. Björk is such an odd, elusive iconoclast that you truly never know what she'll try next. As always, that's part of the joy here.

    Listen to the entire album:
