Björk unveils 10-minute "black lake" video previously only available at MOMA

09 June 2015, 16:43 | Written by Laurence Day

Björk's much-talked-about showcase at MOMA (New York's Museum of Modern Art) featured a lengthy video for "black lake" from recent LP Vulnicura, and it's now on YouTube to be seen by all.

"black lake" was directed by the Icelandic legend and Andrew Thomas Huang, and follows the recent 360-degree visuals for "stonemilker".

The video is accompanied by a lengthy open letter:

dear folks

here comes the black lake video

a video me and andrew thomas huang did

i would like to thank him and james merry so strongly for going through with me the longest video process yet, especially to andrew for his talented elegant patience and to take my first visual impulses and weave into them his own magnificent vision :

im so honoured !!

it was a complex yet adventurous process to synchronize with so many departments

i would like to thank klaus biesenbach for commissioning it

and to the haxan cloak , the speaker collaborators , the architect david benjamin , marco perry who all helped me make the most ideal sound room possible for that song

and then thank derek and emma birkett and tamsin . and iris and erna

and arca for producing the music with me

can i also thank new york for a feisty 5 months , 8 lush gigs ?

i guess its time for "stonemilker" and "black lake" to get out there into the world after a 3 month stint in a museum ..... ( after all the effort , stonemilker was like black lakes spontaneous baby sibling ha ha ha ) we tried to make it in a way it was both at home there and also as a no nonesense music video ( still my fav format) and i hope you dont mind the wait

most curious though about them next things

perhaps we dont even have the best tools yet

and technology might be where all the senses can merge even better ?

!!! here´s to some more VR vulnicura releases soon !!!
