21/3/15 – Björk – Family – 2015 / Björk At MOMA NYC – March 8th – June 7th – 2015

Video Of The Day

Song Of The Day

Bjork MOMA 2015One of the tracks on Björk’s new album, Vulnicura is co-produced with Björk and Arca by the mysteriously named, The Haxan Cloak – it is eight minutes and two seconds long. This clip is an advertisment for the record – arty, experimental and using imagery and film techniques that do more than merely turn water into wine. They are little digital miracles that blend a fabricated fantasy world with real people. This two minute slice is a peep into Björk’s collaborator’s musical minds as well as the Sci-Fi spectacular of visual colloborator Andrew Thomas Huang.

This coincides with the NYC MOMA retrospective, titled “Björk,”. The event opened on March 8th and includes – film, costumes, music, every arty thing Björk has released in the last 20 years. Go here to read a bad review in the New Yorker magazine – not of Björk but of the museum.
