Björk at Sónar+D
 

Björk joins Sónar+D’s Networking day on Wednesday 14 June with a conversation in which she will talk about her close ties to the audio-visual world all throughout her career. From her record covers, to her iconic and innovative videoclips, directed by some of the most important filmmakers from the last decades such as Michel Gondry, Chris Cunningham, or Spike Jonze; or Biophilia, the app for mobile platforms in which the tracks of her album were turned into interactive songs, and most recently her incursion into virtual reality that will have a special place at her “Björk Digital” exhibition at the CCCB. Björk’s talk is exclusive for Delegate Pass holder.

 

The exhibition
 

"Björk Digital" will open on the same day, Wednesday 14th June, at Barcelona’s Contemporary Culture Centre (CCCB) and will run until September 24. "Björk Digital" has been conceived as an immersive exhibition using Virtual Reality to understand and experience first-hand the unique creative universe of Björk. The exhibition combines performance, cinema, installation, video and interaction and includes several audiovisual pieces produced with the latest technology in the field of Virtual Reality. It will showcase several pieces of her work made in collaboration with artists including Michel Gondry, Spike Jonze, Alexander McQueen, Nick Knight, Stephane Sedanaoui; and recent collaborators Jesse Kanda, Andrew Thomas Huang, Warren du Prees and Nick Thornton Jones.

"Bjork Digital" is a co-production between the CCCB and Sold Out, in collaboration with Sónar.

 

Björk DJ Set on the Opening Night of Sónar 2017
 

On Wednesday June 14 at 8PM,  Björk will perform an exclusive 4-hour DJ Set for Sónar 2017’s Opening Night, on the Fira Montjuïc’s SonarHall stage. This will be a rare opportunity to enjoy an intense and highly anticipated sonic adventure of disparate genres that have influenced her career, stretching from experimental electronica and modern grime, through to traditional music from around the world. The Icelandic artist typically shies away from orthodox dance floor trends, focusing more on an abstract and kaleidoscopic sound, incorporating inspirations from a wide range of sound sources and displaying innovative nuances to her continuously challenging and exuberant musical discourse.
