Bjork’s Foghorn Symphony, Morse Code and Other Nautical Notes

Sunday VOW’s (Videos of the Week)

Leave it to Björk, the edgy Icelandic pop star and former front for the Sugarcubes, to incorporate a collection of ambient maritime sounds into her latest song Wanderlust, the sixth single released from her 2007 album Volta. The song’s recently released music video is a magical ride down a roaring river on the back of a buffalo. Well, it basically defies description, so you better watch it and make sure you listen for all of the cool nautical noises in the song.

WATCH THIS incredible large high resolution version in 2D or 3D (need 3D glasses)

Here’s the standard “making of” piece; not as good the video itself, but still worth watching. The video, which took nine months and over $100,000 to film, was staged in the studio of Bjork’s partner, the artist Matthew Barney.
