Tonight, you can listen to an exclusive DJ set from Icelandic icon Björk live from this year’s Red Bull Music Academy in Montréal.Expect to hear music you’ve never heard before and might never hear again when she gets behind the decks on Oct 25th from 10 – 12 PM EDT / 7 – 9 PM PST.
Over the last three decades, few musicians have matched the electrifying output and restless reinvention of Björk. On albums like Post, Vespertine, Medúlla and 2015’s Vulnicura, the Icelandic artist has used the transformative power of her voice to construct unforgettable sonic worlds, prizing collaboration as an essential tool for creation and linking ideas from across disparate generations and cultures. She has also established a strong stance on genre boundaries: There aren’t any. As part of Red Bull Music Academy Montreal, Björk will translate that idiosyncratic approach to create a different sort of immersive experience, DJing all night long on back-to-back nights at a yet-to-be-disclosed location on October 25th and 26th. A DJ set from Björk is as much education as it is celebration – expect the collision of music you have never heard before and might never hear again, merging abrasive electronics with the singular vocals of artists from around the world.
