Homogenic being calm

It’s not as if was relaxed all the time during the recording of Homogenic ; on the contrary. But every now and then, a couple of times a month, I could do it. Then I was very calm for a very short moment. And I decided to make use of that. So if you listen to the CD, you think : wow, Björk has finally calmed down. But that’s only how it appears. The songs on the record merely represent the isolated moments of calmness, amidst all the fuss.

So you’ve hardly changed.

Not really, no. I couldn’t have. But fortunately I am able to make a consistent record now.
