Björk en guest d’Arca au Shed

Arca, musicienne et collaboratrice de Björk, est actuellement au centre culturel The Shed pour une performance expérimentale en 4 actes intitulée : Mutant ;Faith. Et surprise hier soir, Björk a participé à la partie Ripples dans une robe signée ThreeASFOUR.

Björk a interprété un titre inédit en espagnol qui devrait se retrouver sur le nouvel album d’Arca à paraître. Voici un extrait de la performance :

et un retour en anglais sur la performance par batsounds :

it was something like that, very humble, very simple, the way arca announced her. the crowd went wild. no one could possibly imagine björk would make a surprise appearance as a singer at a chapter 3 of a fellow’s residency ! she walked to the stage very calmly and serene, singing her very well-known gibberish and ad libs. the song chosen is a new one, with elastic industrial aggressive dynamics, gorgeous melodies, almost absent of beats. björk used her wonder vocals to create an instant catchy song. do you know those kind of hopeful sounds ? this is what i am talking about. she did not save up any breath, she sang her heart out. she seemed very happy as arca introduced her profusely. she was wearing a metallic circle flower-like dress that fully covered her front head to toe. the fabric reminded me a bit of the one used on “the gate” by gucci. everytime she slightly bent over, you could see her face. she smiled for the entire song. think about “storm” goes emo. to cry for. start to end. i did. sobbing.

Chat en direct et filtre sur Instagram

Björk était en direct sur Instagram cet après midi pour un questions-réponses. Elle en a profité pour parler de Vulnicura VR, de la sortie de Features Creatures mais également d’un nouvel album en préparation !

Dazed a retranscrit certains passages dont celui à propos de son travail sur de nouveaux morceaux :

I’m always writing, but I’m really slow. You’ve seen that I put an album out almost every three years, but I’m always working on something in the background. I’m careful in the first year or two because I don’t want to describe (the work) and make it into a visual thing – I try not to let the more analytical part of my brain take over. Then usually there’s a moment where I’ve finished the previous album and will sit down to listen to what I’ve got. Usually it’s the opposite of what I’m currently doing because I’m bored of that, although in some ways it’s a continuation. But right now I’m a long way from new music.

Le live est en replay sur son compte Instagram. A noter qu’elle arborait un masque créé par James Merry, disponible dans les filtres de l’application.

Sortie de Vulnicura VR cette semaine

En gestation depuis plus de 4 ans, la version complète de Vulnicura VR regroupant tous les titres de l’album est annoncée pour le 6 septembre sur la plateforme Steam. Plus d’infos sur bjork.lnk.to/steamVR

L’application sera présentée en avant-première dans un pop-up store à Londres le 5 septembre.

Voici le communiqué de cette nouvelle sortie :

i am so happy to share finally the complete version of vulnicura VR with all the songs now available in one place - it is a digital home for all the virtual reality videos we made , and will be released this friday 6th september

the VR videos have been touring museums around the world as part of the Björk Digital exhibition , but now that it is possible to put them all out on an accessible gaming platform available to everyone , i am thrilled for people to be able to download them in their own home

vulnicura VR has been a long journey which started when me and andy thomas huang started talking about how we wanted to document "stonemilker"

we then filmed it on a 360 camera on a beach in iceland in november 2014 . we werent sure how to share it because of how few owned VR headsets . we started by putting a dozen of headsets in Rough trade record shops in brooklyn and bethnal green and got really good reactions . i then got offered to do an exhibition in sydney and by june 2016 we brought headsets there with "stonemilker" , "notget" and "mouth mantra" and then adding live performance of "quicksand" with AR for tokyo july 2016 . the exhibition then travelled to london , montreal and reykjavík in the autumn where we added "black lake" and "family" . it has also been to los angeles , mexico city , houston , barcelona , moscow , poznan , buenos aires , bogota and it is currently travelling between 4 cities in brazil

the whole process has been an improvisation , trying to keep faith in formats . it is too easy for musicians to turn pessimistic after cds have evaporated but i wanted to try to have courage to grow along with how 360 sound and vision tech was growing . with every challenge try to turn it into an additional gift for the ideology in the music . these 7 VR videos are done with 6 different companies , 4 softwares 6 different directors . early in this journey it became obvious that the process for great 360 sound mastering did not exist so we had to invent our own on the way .... there were dozens of other similar challenges ......

i am someone who absolutely loves music and gets so moved by the sensation of it . when andy proposed filming stonemilker on the beach it was perhaps him tapping into how spatial and connected to nature my songs are . i wrote that song , walking on the same beach and filming it in 360 and sharing it in surround sound seems the most natural way to invite my listeners humbly into my music .

the themes for the digital animations were a collaborations of mine with james merry and i would like to thank him for being my co-pilot for the visual art direction for this whole thing . he is so enormously talented and has had the patience to listen to my endless tales about the psychology and the sensation of healing through my most difficult album to write to date : my heartbreak album . it came to my surprise how metaphysical and "selfhelpy" heartbreak-healing really is . there is a reason why mankind has talked about broken hearts for aeons . you physically feel as a part of your body has fallen apart , has been torn off . there literally is a chestwound that is sown together and healed . when i first was watching VR in 2014 , the way i recognized it´s strengths and weaknesses seem to match the album i had in my hands perfectly . when you put the headset on , it is very isolating . heartbreak is . it also gives an escapist relief . which heartbreak needs . but there is also a hidden quality i personally think is going to be the most unexplored in the future , the healing potential of VR . the amount of crying that was done into the headsets in sydney convinced me and james that we were on the right track , this was something people were experiencing on a visceral level

biophilia was educational , made partially for music schools and the touchscreens/ipads were perfect for this . when i first tried touchscreen in 2006 i felt i could finally share my 3d musicology . it offers opportunity to expand on the book , and things that are spatial and desperately need three dimensions in teaching like music , physics , math and more benefit from this .

VR is different , i personally feel its biggest strength is how penetrative it is physically . it is not a coincidence it was embraced by the porn industry . but the ways it can be very healing is for example in training damaged brain channels , neurology . and i feel it has extremely high potential for all things metaphysical , will probably excel in yoga , meditation , voice teaching , and all of the selfhelpy arts . because it is a very powerful extension of our body . if touch screen was our 3d book , this is our 3d body . our prosthetic aura we can fill with the air we want to be there ............

i would like to thank andrew melchior for setting up teams and introducing us to a plethora of tech

and all the directors to be up for this experiment , andy thomas huang , jesse kanda , nick thornton jones and warren du preez , inez & vinoodh, our japanese collaborators : dentsu and rhizomatiks . and stephen malinowski for his wonderful 3d notation animations

also mandy parnell and martin korth who pioneered our own take on the 360 mixing and mastering with me , solving and programming endless solutions

chris pike and chris elms were divine engineers on this

profound thanks to analog studios for going above and beyond in building this umbrella app to house everyone’s work

and also to protools and audiokinetic

i hope you enjoy this ......

as always i am grateful for your interest

warmthness

björk
