Bjork

Yorke and Bjork

by Jonathan on July 25, 2002

Thom will be featured in a documentary about Bjork called “Inside Bjork.” Here are the details:

Channel 5 has commissioned Endemol UK’s production arm Initial to produce a documentary. This documentary called ‘Inside Bjork’ details the career of one of the world’s most innovative artists, Bjork. It will be aired in September 2002.

With exclusive access to the star, Inside Bjork (1 x 60′) will chart Bjork’s unorthodox career from her early work in Icelandic acts Tappi Tikarrass, Kukl and The Sugarcubes to huge international acclaim for her solo work. The singer will reveal, for the first time, the secrets of her creative process by giving the viewer a look at her home and studio.

The Grammy and Brit Award winning artist is renowned for her distinctive sound and has admirers including Madonna, Prince, Bono and REM’s Michael Stipe. Inside Bjork will include contributions from superstars Elton John and Sean Penn, designers Stella McCartney and Alexander McQueen, and fellow musicians Beck, Missy Elliot and Thom Yorke from Radiohead. Plus the documentary will controversially include an interview with ‘Dancer in the Dark’ director, Lars Von Trier. Read the rest…

RH inspires jazz artists

by Jonathan on June 19, 2002

Depending on your perspective, it’s either an absurd development or an entirely natural one. Two of the rock world’s most respected artists are exerting influence over the jazz world. The music of Radiohead and Bjork, who have been accorded the labels of the world’s best rock band and pop music’s most creative artist, are being co-opted by some of jazz’s finest.

No two single artists better embody this movement than the pianists Brad Mehldau and Esbjorn Svensson, whose trios share a bill Thursday at Copley Square, where they’ll play for free as part of the Boston Globe Jazz & Blues Festival. The music begins at 4:30 p.m.
