    Default Bjork is back (with a 30ft pendulum)

    http://www.dazeddigital.com/music/article/10006/1/bj

    This summer, Björk introduces Biophilia, an extraordinary immersive project and her most ambitious work to date. The multi-media endeavour encompasses her music, installations and live shows, and celebrating the use of modern technology by utilising the internet. The project aims to explore ideas like how sound works, the infinite expanse of the universe, from planetary systems to atomic structures.

    The world premiere of Björk's Biophilia live show will be held at Manchester International Festival for a three-week residency - across six intimate shows in the Campfield Market Hall for audiences of 1800, as her first UK dates in over three years. For these six special shows, Björk will be performing new tracks from the forthcoming Biophilia studio album as well as with a small group of unique musical collaborators. The show will feature a range of specially conceived and crafted instruments, among them a bespoke digitally-controlled pipe organ; a 30 foot pendulum that harnesses the earth’s gravitational pull to create musical patterns - creating a unique bridge between the ancient and the modern; a bespoke gamelan-celeste hybrid; and a one-off extraordinary pin barrel harp.

    In a special collaboration with MIF, the Biophilia live show will travel to major cities around the world following the Manchester premiere. MIF will also be working with young people in Manchester to explore the musicological, scientific and technological ideas behind the project. In a series of educational workshops schoolchildren will be given the unique opportunity to experience the world of Biophilia first hand, and to immerse themselves in the endlessly rich and inspiring place where cutting edge technology, music and nature meet.

    Lick an orange, it tastes like an orange. Lick a pineapple, it tastes like a pineapple. Go ahead, try it. Try some more. The strawberries taste like strawberries. The snozzberries taste like snozzberries! We are the music makers, and we are the dreamers of dreams. Come along, come along.

    Bjork is toying with physics. Now we know that a pendulum caused the earthquake/tsunami.

    After listening to it a few times, the tsunami/earthquake is starting to grow on me. Maybe I didn't see Bjork's message in it until now.

    I love how Bjork continues to be crazy and awesome. It means that all is right in the world, even if she caused the tsunami with her latest project.

    oh man, I'm excited for some Bjork weirdness. First thing I thought of when I started reading this thread was the American evolutionary biologist Edward O. Wilson's book of the same title... Biophilia. He coined the term to describe how the human experience has such a deep affinity for nature (i.e. other forms of life and processes). Its a pretty good read for anyone into that sort of stuff.

    Whatever buddy. I have my undergrad and graduate degrees in biology and a couple of E.O. Wilson's books on my bookshelf. He is one of the only scientists who can tell a good story without bogging your mind down with a bunch of technical jargon.

    I kinda love Volta! Except that MY JUVENILE song. What a waste of time.

    Anyway, based on the description of her upcoming plans, you'd think THIS was would be better suited for the VOLTA era/tour.

    The scary thing is that she's been kicking out shit since she was a teenager.
    Whiskey Sour

    2 oz blended whiskey
    Juice of 1/2 lemon
    1/2 tsp powdered sugar
    1 cherry
    1/2 slice lemon

    Shake blended whiskey, juice of lemon, and powdered sugar with ice and strain into a whiskey sour glass. Decorate with the half-slice of lemon, top with the cherry, and serve.
