Bjork

Yesterday it was revealed that Aphex Twin would finally return to the US after eight years to headline Houston’s Day For Night Festival. Now the rest of the lineup is here, and it’s very awesome. It includes “unique digital sets” by Bjork, plus Run the Jewels, Butthole Surfers, Blood Orange, Little Dragon, The Jesus and Mary Chain, Blonde Redhead, Thundercat, Kamasi Washington, John Carpenter, S U R V I V E, Lightning Bolt, Arca, Mykki Blanco, Chelsea Wolfe, Uncle Acid & the Deadbeats, Nothing, and plenty more. Full lineup below.

This thing goes down December 17 and 18, just about a month and a half after another similarly awesome Texas festival. Various ticket options are available at the festival’s website.

Here’s a little more info on what Bjork will be doing at this fest:

Known for pushing the boundaries of what is possible in music, art and technology, Björk’s exhibition at Day for Night invites visitors to engage with her work through the latest in virtual reality (VR) technology. Björk believes that by offering a private theatrical experience, VR provides a unique way to connect with her audiences.

The exhibition includes Black Lake, Björk’s groundbreaking immersive film commissioned by the New York’s Museum of Modern Art. Filmed in the highlands of Iceland, the work was directed by Los Angeles-based filmmaker Andrew Thomas Huang, whom she also collaborated with for Stonemilker VR, a project that transports the viewer to a private performance of the first track from Björk’s critically acclaimed Vulnicura album. Shot on location on a remote, windswept beach in Iceland and viewable in full 360-degree VR, viewers are able to experience a one-on-one recital.

In Mouthmantra VR, Björk worked with director Jesse Kanda to capture intense footage from inside her mouth whilst she sings the title track, her teeth and tongue twisting and seemingly taking on a life of their own. Meanwhile, Notget VR, directed by Warren Du Preez and Nick Thornton Jones, presents Björk as a digital moth giantess transformed by stunning masks created by artist James Merry.
