The music of Björk defies categorisation. Her thirty-year career has produced a catalogue of works that cement her as an experimental creative force and one of the most important artists of the last century.
Examining art-pop as a canvas to which electronica, classical, trip hop, jazz and dance converge in the avantgarde – her truly unique sonic portraits inspire, challenge and invigorate audiences and musicians worldwide.
With Claire Cross bringing together an ensemble of some of Melbourne’s most exciting young improvisers, the group reworks, re-imagines and re-model pieces from Iceland’s most famous exports’ inimitable repertoire. The show features special guest artists Louisa Rankin and electronic artist Tom Barton. Taking cue from the Icelandian’s extensive mixed media collaborations, Rhys Newling creates a visual score projected behind the artists to paint an optic representation of the music.
An ambitious and highly visceral experience – this is a concert not to be missed.
