Bjork is to perform her song ‘Quicksand’ from a concert in Tokyo as the world’s first VR and 360 live stream.
Bjork is to wear a special mask at the performance which can be seen here at mid-day today (June 28). The mask was designed by Professor Neri Oxman and was made by a 3D printer.
The performance is part of Bjork’s new exhibition Digital, which opens at Tokyo museum Miraikan tomorrow.
‘Quicksand’ is taken from Bjork’s current album ‘Vulnicura’. Bjork recently announced a box-set edition of the accompanying live album ‘Vulnicura Live’. Set for release in September, the box-set features a 3D mask made from moth paper as well as photos from the 2015 tour plus the CD, download and gatefold vinyl versions of the album. Fans who purchase the album will have to make the mask from accompanying instructions. A standard version of the album is out on July 15.
The 'Digital' exhibtion opened in Sydney at the start of June. There is as yet no information on whether it will open in the UK.
