Evo­lu­tion of mu­sic on film

The Gold Coast Bulletin - Play Magazine - - PLAY -

Sir David At­ten­bor­ough is team­ing up with ec­cen­tric Ice­landic pop star Bjork (pic­tured) for a new mu­sic doc­u­men­tary. The pair will ap­pear on a UK Chan­nel 4 show with the work­ing ti­tle The Na­ture of Mu­sic. It will ex­am­ine how mu­sic has evolved and how tech­nol­ogy might change it in the fu­ture. Sir David will take view­ers through footage of an­i­mals, in­clud­ing song­birds and blue whales, and talk about his love of mu­sic. Bjork will show off a range of spe­cial­ly­cre­ated in­stru­ments she had built for her lat­est project Bio­philia. The 2011 re­lease was recorded in part on an iPad and came com­plete with a se­ries of apps al­low­ing lis­ten­ers to in­ter­act with the songs. Ex­ec­u­tive pro­ducer Lu­cas Ochoa says: ‘‘Pulse Films are in­cred­i­bly ex­cited to be work­ing on this re­mark­able film with Bjork and Sir David At­ten­bor­ough. Born from Bjork’s rev­o­lu­tion­ary mu­sic project, it is thrilling to be able to doc­u­ment this in­cred­i­ble jour­ney with her. She is un­de­ni­ably one of the most iconic fig­ures in pop­u­lar cul­ture.’’
