Bjork dorks (...it'll catch on)! The Scandinavian songstress has created a documentary montaging the most important live performances from her Biophilia tour. Biophilia, released in October 2011, is Bjork's eighth studio album — and as with most things the lady's put her hands on, it's pretty exciting.
The film was directed by old hats Nick Fenton and Peter Strickland, and it will premiere April 26th at New York’s annual Tribeca Film Festival. From ze press announcement:
“From a mind unlike any other, Biophilia Live chronicles the multidimensional concert centered on the eighth studio album of avant-garde Icelandic artist, Björk. Directors Nick Fenton and Peter Strickland, unique voices in their own right, film Björk live in performance, and punctuate her music with evocative animation from apps created by the world's top 10 designers combined with science and nature archive and found footage. This is inspired by the themes of the album which explore the relationships between musical structures and natural phenomena—atomic, cellular and cosmic. The infinitely creative journey presents a culmination of work that represents one of the most original musical endeavors of a generation.”
