Ever since you heard Debut—no—ever since you heard The Sugarcubes’ Life’s too Good, you’ve been thinking, “Boy, it would probably be really great if the owner of this super idiosyncratic voice would team up with noted British naturalist David Attenborough for an exploration of this thing we call music.” After Bjork’s album and smartphone/tablet-assisted music lesson Biophilia, it looks like your dream has come to life. The Louise Hopper-directed Bjork and Attenborough: The Nature of Music, is the name of the production, and it’s set to air on UK broadcaster Channel 4 (sorry everybody outside the UK who might’ve been into something like this, you’ll have to torrent it later). The Hollywood Reporter describes the venture as an exploration of “human kind’s unique relationship with music and how technology might transform the way we engage with it in the future.” Hopefully this means that at some point audiences will be treated to Bjork’s insanely expressive and distinctive voice belting over Attenborough’s calm and even narration.
