Dull Flame Of Desire

Björk à propos du clip

Pitchfork : Can you tell us anything about the video for "Dull Flame of Desire", your duet with Antony ?

Björk : When we did the competition for "Innocence", where all the fans sent in videos, they sent in like 400 videos. There were some that I thought were amazing, made by really talented visual people who had maybe never done this before, but they didn’t totally fit with the mood of "Innocence". So I contacted them and asked them if they would work together and do ["Dull Flame of Desire"]. In that song, we repeat the same verse over and over again. So I thought it would be interesting to have one verse presented by one director, and then the second by another director, and then the third by another. I had never done that before, and it was quite exciting.

We recorded our part in front of a green screen, and sent it by email to the directors, one in Japan, one in Spain, and one in France. They’re collaborating via email. I don’t know how long it will take. I was being pressured by my record company [to make videos] for the more up-tempo songs, but I have great love for "Dull Flame of Desire", and it was very emotionally special for me to make that with Antony. I thought this would be a good way of doing it. Pitchfork Media - Bjork Discusses "Independence", Videos, Grammys 02.01.2008


Sous la forme d’un triptyque orchestré par trois réalisateurs au doigté pour l’occasion définitivement minimaliste (l’Allemand Christoph Jantos, le Japonais Masahiro Mogari et l’Espagnol Marçal Cuberta Junca ). Des caresses visuelles pour un moment symphonique atemporel et hypnotique. Les Inrockuptibles
