Last year, Björk released her ‘Biophilia’ album, one of her most critically and commercially exalted albums ever. It appealed to those obsessed with the technical, exploring sounds and techniques often overlooked, while retaining as close to a pop sensibility as the Swedish chanteuse is ever going get (‘It’s Oh So Quiet’ not withstanding).
One track that really got everyone talking was ‘Mutual Core’. Its haunting vocals and minimalist organ line giving way to a crushing gabber low-end stab could not have been predicted by anyone.
On top of that, the video – directed by Andrew Thomas Huang – was equally lauded for its exquisite visuals and crisp colours. So it should come as no surprise that Huang has teamed up with MOCA to adapt the video as part of Midnight Moment series of installations, a project in conjunction with Times Square Advertising Coalition (TSAC) and Times Square Arts.
You can watch the adapted footage below as well as the original video below that.
