Björk And David Attenborough Collaborate
BJORK AND BRITISH NATURE FILMMAKER DAVID ATTENBOROUGH TO CREATE FILM ON THE EVOLUTION OF MUSIC FOR UK TV
So cool! I hope we get to see this in the states. I absolutely love Björk’s revolutionary app album ‘Biophilia’—which focuses on science and nature—so I have no doubt that this project will be just as interesting. I don’t think there’s a better person she could’ve teamed up with, either. Attenborough is pretty much the only big-name nature filmmaker who doesn’t take the Steve Irwin in-your-face approach to animal documentaries. Maybe that’s why he’s still alive.
His film on the lyrebird is fantastic.
‘Attenborough and Bjork: The Nature of Music’ will show on Channel 4 in the UK and will focus on the evolution of music within human history as well as “the planet’s other species”. Sounds like classic Björk! A producer on the project told The Hollywood Reporter, “We are thrilled to be able to document this incredible journey with her. She is undeniably one of the most iconic figures in popular culture and truly pushes boundaries like no other artist does.” Trust.
It will be directed by Louise Hooper and produced by Pulse Films. There is no air date at this time. We’ll keep you posted.
