Attenborough and Bjork : The Nature of Music documentaire de 60 minutes réalisé par Louise Hooper et produit par Pulse Films
Icelandic singer Bjork opened her world tour on Thursday by unveiling a series of quirky multi-media designs inspired by award-winning naturalist Sir David Attenborough. orange.co.uk
If this heady symposium of life sciences, ethnomusicology and Apple-branded geekery all seems rather forbidding, comfort is at hand. The soothing tones of David Attenborough provide a preamble tonight ; his disembodied voice periodically pops back to introduce the new tracks, raising a Pavlovian feeling of cosiness every time. Getting Attenborough to intone things such as "Cosmogony… music of the spheres… equilibrium," is a fabulous coup that is never quite equalled as the show goes on. guardian.co.uk
When Björk met you for the first time, she said she was more starstruck than she ever has been in her life… She didn’t say that to me ! It is an immortal moment in my mind.
She also praised your "explorer spirit"… I beg your pardon ? That’s not what I had in mind at all. I thought it was my biceps. Bloody explorer spirit - that doesn’t get me anywhere ! I thought she was absolutely captivating : an extraordinary, fey creature. Enchanting. She didn’t play me her album but said she wanted to speak to me and have lunch in a West End restaurant. After the very distinguished Jane Bown from the Observer had taken the picture, Björk suggested she leave us. There was a question of whether there was going to be a recordist there to capture this conversation but Björk said certainly not, as she’d do it herself. It was to my very great pleasure and we had a very long lunch of about two-and-a-half hours. Two days later her agent rings me up and says, "I’m terribly sorry but Björk hadn’t turned on the recorder correctly. Can she have another lunch ?" I said, "Absolutely !" gq-magazine.co.uk
