As part of an exhibition that has been showing at New York’s Museum of Modern Art since March, the Icelandic quirkstress Bjork has produced a 360-degree virtual reality music video, now available online to the delight of music and tech nerds worldwide.
The video accompanies the track Stonemilker, which in itself is more of the same Bjork-y chirping we have become accustomed to over the span of her 20-year career. On pressing play, you will see the petite frame of the singer on a sparse lakeside landscape shot on location in Iceland by director Andrew Huang. You can then move the screen to survey the surroundings or follow along as her flowing yellow dress moves from frame to frame. It is not the most remarkable experience on a desktop, but it is undoubtedly a taste of some pretty psychedelic future experiences.
We are living in the future! Embrace it!
Always one to change her sound, style and image, we are big fans of the Scandinavian artist. Bjork’s fierce originality and independence is a rare trait in today’s music industry, and it’s videos like this which prove her to be more than a musician, but a pioneer.
Bjork’s last full record was Vulnicara – check out our album review here.
