Have you ever imagined what Bjork would do if she were asked to play the part of a mom whale? Well, that’s what she’s doing on a series of tracks she collaborated on with the Dirty Projectors.
The group of musicians produced an album titled Mount Wittenberg Orca, the proceeds of which they are donating entirely to the National Geographic Society, to try and help create areas of oceanic sustainability. The project was apparently conceived when Stereogum asked the Dirty Projectors and Bjork to collaborate on a musical project, and then, around that time, one of the Dirty Projectors band members was walking along Mount Wittenberg and spotted a family of whales. And they asked to Bjork to play the mom whale. I like the idea of the Dirty Projectors as Bjork’s children.
Has anyone else ever noticed how you can hear when Bjork is smiling while singing?
