This is some Okayfuture sh*t if I ever saw it. Icelandic muse Björk basically took a fantastic voyage into the DNA of her own cells for the video for “Hollow,” off her Biophilia LP. Kicks off like a bit of an educational film but the real beat (and visual concept) don’t even kick off until about 5 minutes in. As Björk herself explained it:
It’s just the feeling when you start thinking about your ancestors and DNA that the grounds open below you and you can feel your mother and her mother, and her mother, and her mother, and her mother 30,000 years back. So suddenly you’re this kinda tunnel, or trunk of DNA … All these ghosts come up so it ended up begin a Halloween song and quite gothic in a way … It’s like being part of this everlasting necklace when you’re just a bead on a chain and you sort of want to belong and be a part of it and it’s just like a miracle.
In other Okayfuture news, Geoff Barrow of Portishead recently announced his new collaborative LP with composer Ben Salisbury, which will be released under the collective moniker Drokk. Hear a recent track from a sampled for Barrow’s Invada label after the jump.
