Vitamin String Quartet lovingly reimagines the genius of Björk
Icelandic icon Björk is a truly unique talent in the world of music.
VSQ is passionate about Vitamin String Quartet Performs Björk; their truly mesmerizing new album is due for release on April 19th, paying tribute to her eclectic, ethereal and innovative style.
The 13-track set features creative violin, viola and cello arrangements, captivating the chanteuse’s innovative artistry on reimagined versions of “Venus as a Boy,” “All Is Full of Love,” and “Hyper-ballad.” To celebrate the creation of Vitamin String Quartet Performs Björk, VSQ and CMH Label Group have collaborated with a broad range of directors from around the world, to produce a series of videos to compliment the beauty of VSQ’s music and honor Björk’s rich musical and visual heritage. In “Venus as a Boy” we’re taken to a monochrome land of shape-shifting characters in a poignant tale. We travel through a 3-dimensional universe of bizarre situations for “Wanderlust.” “Crystalline” takes us on a crazy, colorful and hypnotic animation trip, with violins! “All Is Full of Love” tells a tale of rebirth and reawakening, while “Hyper-ballad" captures VSQ recording the song with ever-shifting colored split screens. The powerful visuals will be a reflection of the beautiful music created by VSQ for their collection, honoring the world of Björk.
