Vulnicura Remixed part 1, disponible en streaming et téléchargement

Recommended Posts

Here we go :)

 

Dazed Digital

 

Björk has never kept herself to herself. The list of her collaborators – visual, moving image and musical – stretches into the dozens. Matmos, Thom Yorke, Harmony Korine, Nan Goldin, Alexander McQueen and, on her most recent album, Haxan Cloak and Arca are just a few of her fellow adventurers.

For her latest venture, the Icelandic star has created two sets of remixes. Released by One Little Indian Records, we're streaming the first set exclusively below, featuring the forces of music's forward-edge: Lotic, Mica Levi, Katie Gately and Krampfhaft. Scroll down to read the stories of how this extraordinary set of songs came to be.

“Björk – Notget (Lotic Keptsafe version)

“lotic is the one of the first musicians alejandro introduced me to autumn 2013 with piles of enthusiasm : i got immediately obsessed enjoying how always total nature he was !! the most clublike flamboyant anthems of his always seem like shrieks of beasts , dark insects and pagan birds displaying their feathers in a territorial way : a colourful celebration !! the reason why i asked him to do notget was there are certain suspension like elastic gravity defying beat structures that him and alejandro share ( each in their total idiosyncratic way though ) that notget has and i had a gut feeling he would take further . which he did .” – Björk

“When Björk sent over the original track to review late last year, I couldn't believe how well she had intuited that ‘Notget’ was the perfect selection for me. Perhaps it was a bit of coincidence, but I was very much still tending to the scars left from my previous relationship while at the same time nurturing my current one. ‘Notget’ is both the mourning and the eulogy; I knew this meant remixing the song would be difficult, both technically and emotionally. In the end, I felt I had to attempt to amplify both the desperation the song expresses as well as the inspired, reminiscent joy. The result came to be two completely separate explorations, with ‘Keptsafe’ exploring the sorrow and ‘Fromdeath’, coming next week, the bliss.” – Lotic

Björk – Family (remix by Katie Gately)

“katie gately was introduced to me through our mutual friend robin carolan . i was immediately blown away by her universe : has a refined engineers point of view expressing melancholy with some organic physical sonic fine textures . she picked her song and it didnt surprise me she went for family . i feel out of all the remixes she really took it most somewhere else while keeping true to the core of the song . which is that fascinating contradiction of the best remixes .... ” – Björk

“Robin Carolan introduced us through email and bjork asked if i was interested in remixing, which...i undoubtedly was. i asked to work on "family". When I got the stems, I started by just erasing all of them except for the vocals, and allowed myself to add anything to the stew which was originally a "voice" – a sound made from a vocal chord. I harmonized her main vocal line with pitch-shifted owls, peacocks, hyenas and sparrow calls and turned that into the new track. I spoke with her on the phone afterwards, and she seemed excited that it was so different from the original.” – Katie Gately

Björk – Lionsong (Kareokjeijd remix by Mica Levi)

“mica is someone i have been following growing since 2008 , like a proud aunt , i might even have been at her first concert ? sooo exciting to witness her grow into a full on composer carry the weight of such things as "under the skin" ... and i still adore her upbeat stuff with tirzah too !!!” – Björk

“I did a karaoke version more than a remix, because I love her string arrangements and thought it would be an opportunity to draw attention to them. I hope Björk isn't offended that I took her voice out, [but] you can hear it in your head – or sing along.” – Mica Levi

Björk – History of Touches (remix by Kramphaft)

“krampfhaft is someone i have been listening to for few years adoring his hyperbeauty , orchid techno i nickname it in the vein of plaid and others : brave enough to take joy on in the often rather apocalyptic environment of electronic music” – Björk

“I was very honoured to be part of this, although it was a pretty daunting taks to rework a song with such an intimate topic! As the original is very stripped down, all I could think of doing was adding in [even more] tension and drama. So I layed the whole track on to a bed of heavily compressed cloth movement and gradually built up the tension from there.” – Krampfhaft

Oh... je voulais que ça pète de partout, c'est bien trop sage et pas très ambitieux...

Déçu par le remix de Lotic : (

 

Reste à entendre la "part two"

Le remix de notget par Lotic (sans intérêt selon moi) commence avec une mélodie qui rappelle Pluto.

 

Edit : les trois autres non plus ne valent pas tripette.

La palme d'or revient quand même à Family qui est inécoutable comme ça.

un sondage pour le nombre de formats physiques qu'ils vont inventer pour ces remixes?

et pourquoi tous les noms de remixes commencent par un K????? :bat:

(à part la Katie, mais c'est de la triche)

 

peut être pas le plus original des trois,

mais la re-version de micachu ♥ est la plus jolie (comme souvent) à l'image la bande originale qu'elle avait composée pour Under The Skin

Entre remix et vidéos, le tout sort mélangé et toujours pas de premier single!?! C'est le gros bordel. Il est où le bon vieux temps où tout était dans l'ordre; single - remix, b-side - vidéo...

À part ça, Vulnicura est devenu mon album préféré de Björk.

Je n'espérais plus avoir des B-sides mais c'est dommage quand même...

J'espère qu'elle a pas une pépite comme Trance qui traîne dans les tiroirs et qu'elle ne nous sort pas :arg:

(hors sujet) Aaaah c'est elle qui a fait la BO !! C'est le seul truc que j'ai aimé dans ce film (bon et c'est joli visuellement par moments). Ceci explique cela.

du lot de 4 je ne retiens que le remix de Family, qui est pas mal. le reste est soit une grosse blague (le karaoki mix, serieux? :o) ou du gros gloubiboulga informe...

Ouais le Family est vachement bien!

 

Le Mica Levi dont j'attendais énormément aurait pu être pas mal y'avait des bons passages mais ça va un peu nulle part. Et les remixes de chansons sans voix c'est pas trop mon kif.

HOM y'a quelque chose mais sans casser la baraque

 

 

Not get c'est du foutage de gueule.

 

Support physique ou dans ton cul?

Family est pas mal mais j'aurais aimé une montée, plus rapide ou en tout cas, plus "clash"

HoT j'aime bien malgré le côté "vieux slow de fin de soirée"

mais quand même, avec ce qu'elle écoute, pourquoi on a du "mou" ? :protestation: ils et elles ont peur d'y aller franchement ou quoi ! la flemme de lui faire réenregistrer la voix aussi...

Notget n'est pas assez "götic" :bat:

Lionsong ok mais en 3ème piste de nos bons vieux cd singles

 

:zic:

trop tard pour le téléchargement gratuit
