The LA Phil is thrilled to present the West Coast premiere of Björk Digital, an exhibition of groundbreaking VR video works featuring music from Björk’s latest album, Vulnicura. Transport yourself to a remote beach, a Japanese concert hall and the inside of Björk’s mouth as the Icelandic singer’s ambitious virtual reality projects comes to L.A. Björk Digital features six VR experiences set to music from the Icelandic singer, as well as the hands-on Biophilia education room and the Cinema room, with an ongoing playlist of music videos directed by Michel Gondry, Spike Jonze, Alexander McQueen and more.
A pioneer in music, art, and technology, Björk has worked with a collection of world-renowned directors, programmers, and visual artists to create a series of innovative virtual reality works displayed throughout a series of rooms. Björk Digital will invite guests to experience these immersive works through the latest in virtual reality technology.
The Björk Digital exhibition is a series of experiences: This begins with six VR experiences where users are transported with custom headsets; then, the Biophilia room, a hands-on educational space which showcases Björk’s innovative apps and custom-made musical instruments, encouraging users to dive into an exploration of musicology, science and technology; and finally, the Cinema room, a curated program of Björk’s extensive and groundbreaking music videos spanning her career thus far, remastered for a unique exhibition cinema experience. Included will be videos directed by Michel Gondry, Spike Jonze, Alexander McQueen, and many more.
