First launched as a Kickstarter back in 2013, Dysonic's RondoMotion's 3D head-tracking technology is now being used to power trippy acoustic effects in Björk's MoMA retrospective. It's true 3D listening in your earbuds. That and also Björk.
It seems like an unlikely pairing, but quirky singer-songwriter Björk is teaming up with David Attenborough, the famous English broadcaster and naturalist. Together, the two are working on a documentary about the intersection of art, music, the environment, and technology.
If you think Björk is strange, you're correct. But more than that, she's an absolutely brilliant musician and performance artist.
It's the second day of our massive music countdown, in which we gesticulate wildly at the 100 albums that tickle our dendrites.
Roll that spliff phatly, pack some fresh ice into the binger, and set the Volcano to "toastify." It's time for tonight's Stoner Channel. We've collected our best high-times material for the discerning pothead so sit back, relax, and pass that shit on the left, yo.
Bjork stopped by the Colbert Report last night to talk about her new album "Biophilia," which has an interactive iPad component that lets listeners manipulate the music with various on-screen elements. The interview wasn't without the obligatory technical difficulties, but thanks to some expressive gestures we all…
Bjork's fifth album, Vespertine could come out 10 years from now and it would still sound startlingly ahead of it's time. Quiet, meditative and stark, the LP is absolutely perfect for these winter months.
Björk science-tinged new album Biophilia has inspired some delightfully cosmic music videos. Her recent video for the track "Moon" is no different. Watch as Iceland's de facto cultural ambassador prances about serenading (what looks like) a sponge. Also, is that a zither suit? I need to get myself one of those. …
After all the hoopla surrounding the fact Bjork's got a new album and that she's releasing it as ten in-app purchases, it's finally here, with the app itself costing zilch, and the first song just $2.
Anything Bjork ever does is noteworthy, musically speaking, and now that she's decided to release her next album Biophilia, as a multimedia project comprised of 10 iPad apps, she's also become noteworthy in a technological sense.
Science fiction, pop music, and reality are chock full o' artificial intelligences that can carry a tune. Here's an entire roster of fantastic singing she-bots who can croon circles around The Rock-A-Fire Explosion.
Sure, you could ask an engineer or designer how an old TV works. But then you'd get a boring, predictable and correct answer. Who wants that? Not me, that's for sure. I'd much rather listen to Bjork tell me exactly what's going on inside a TV, because you're guaranteed to get a much more fantastical and entertaining…
Björk has released a three-part, scifi-themed video for her sparse, horn-laiden new single "The Dull Flame of Desire," featuring Antony Hegarty (of Antony and the Johnsons). Directed in three parts by a trio of newbie directors, the first segment features a space-scape in which both singers’ faces materialize in a…
Three Rules Of Music Video Robotics
1. Make it confusing. You're never quite sure what Kanye, Beck or Bjork is really up to in these videos.
2. Give a hint of androgyny.
3. And above all, make it sexy.
If you caught Bjork on tour this year, then you might have seen the ReacTable, a tactile synth. Moving, flipping and rotating the blocks on the perspex surface creates the music, while a projector beneath the table provides the visuals. It's intuitive and thrilling stuff that can be used by both professional musicians…
