From virus to solstice

I've always held Björk in high esteem as an artist. But after thrilling to her big-little-big voice for ages, I simply wasn't all that enthralled anymore. So I was reticent about screening her new concert film Björk: Biophilia Live. In three-plus decades on Earth, I've discovered my gut reactions are sometimes disturbingly wrong-headed. So I watched, and I listened. And I'm sheepishly admitting to once again being in Björk's thrall.

Biophilia Live's filmic world features breathtaking biological imagery, oh-so-creative post-production editing and a live performance of Björk’s sublime new album Biophilia. It’s one of the most stunning, evocative concert films I've ever seen. Collaboration with amazing live musicians—including a female Icelandic choir dressed in sequined, mesh and crushed velvet garb—is supplemented by five new instruments borne of Biophilia: the gravity pendulum harp, sharpsicord, MIDI-controlled pipe organ, gameleste and musical Tesla coils.
