Björk Special

Some faves in a historical overview, and it also shows the latest development of making music with 'Apps'. Why? Because Björk Guðmundsdóttir has recorded a brand new album on her iPad!

Björk - Violently Happy.

1994 (p 2002/2003) from the DVD MTV Unplugged.
It shows that weird electronic effects sound better when redone with acoustic instruments.
(MTV unplugged is my fave Björk music, it has every song with complete different instruments)

Björk - It's Oh So Quiet
(her 5th hit single / her latest real hit)

1995 from the album Post. Her well known big band song.


Björk - Triumph Of A Heart

2004 from the album Medúlla. Acapella with vocal beatbox and electronic effects.



Björk - Wanderlust (2D)

2007 (p 2008) from the album Volta. Interesting videoclip. Intro sounds as dark as some of the 1966 recording of George Fell Into His French Horn.


Björk - Solstice

2011 from the album Biophilia, which also has an 'App' with every song for your iPad, for use as a kind of interactive visual/musical game.
