Björk - Biophilia

  Björk Guðmundsdótti  known as Björk is an Icelandic singer and songwriter, occasional actress, music composer and music producer, whose solo work includes seven solo albums and two original film soundtracks.
  Her eclectic musical style has achieved popular acknowledgement and popularity within many musical genres such as, rock, jazz, electronic,dance music,classical and folk. Her voice has been acclaimed for its distinctive qualities.
  Björk's lyrical themes range from personal matters to scientific, natural or social topics.

This summer Björk, introduces Biophilia, an extraordinary immersive project and her most ambitious work to date. The multi-media endeavour encompasses her music, installations and live shows, and celebrating the use of modern technology by utilising the internet. The project aims to explore ideas like how sound works, the infinite expanse of the universe, from planetary systems to atomic structures.

   The world premiere of Björk's Biophilia live show will be held at Manchester International Festival for a three-week residency - across six intimate shows in the Campfield Market Hall for audiences of 1800, as her first UK dates in over three years. For these six special shows, Björk will be performing new tracks from the forthcoming Biophilia studio album as well as with a small group of unique musical collaborators.

   The show will feature a range of specially conceived and crafted instruments, among them a bespoke digitally-controlled pipe organ; a 30 foot pendulum that harnesses the earth’s gravitational pull to create musical patterns - creating a unique bridge between the ancient and the modern; a bespoke gamelan-celeste hybrid; and a one-off extraordinary pin barrel harp.

  In a special collaboration with MIF, the Biophilia live show will travel to major cities around the world following the Manchester premiere. MIF will also be working with young people in Manchester to explore the musicological, scientific and technological ideas behind the project. In a series of educational workshops schoolchildren will be given the unique opportunity to experience the world of Biophilia first hand, and to immerse themselves in the endlessly rich and inspiring place where cutting edge technology, music and nature meet. 

 Biophilia is anticipated later this year, release on september 27th 2011.
    Until then we're gonna enjoy in some of her greatest success ever made in a music world...

Fischerspooner - Entertainment

   Fischerspooner is an art pop performance project created and helmed by Warren Fischer and Casey Spooner that makes music, dance, fashion, film and photography. 
   Their work fuses fine art and pop culture, as in their renowned outsider pop shows bursting with stage effects presented in both art galleries and traditional concert halls.  

   Their full-length albums of music include 1, a punked-up digital party record trussed with conceptual lyrics; and Odyssey, a rich emotional fantasia with a deep, expansive sound. Fischerspooner’s third album Entertainment, a sophisticated pop epic bubbling with hooks, released in May, 2009.
   Fischer and Spooner met at the School of the Art Institute of Chicago, where they collaborated on performance art pieces.   With the help of an ever-expanding network of dancers, singers, designers, and artists, the performances grew into large-scale arena-style pop spectacles staged in galleries and nightclubs. 

   Fischerspooner produces a quirky, robotic, and strangely subdued kind of dance music. Their albums can be seen as soundtracks to their stageshows, as opposed to recordings which are performed live.

Faunts - Feel.Love.Thinking.Of

  Faunts is an Indie rock band from Edmonton, Alberta, Canada
  Faunts was formed in the fall of 2000 by two brothers Steve Batke and Tim Batke. Faunts are released on Friendly Fire Recordings. In 2005, their debut album High Expectations/Low Results was well-received.
  In 2006, a 40-minute EP entitled M4 was released that grew out of music crafted to accompany short films for theFilm and Video Arts Society. One of the tracks from the M4 EP (M4 Part II) was featured during the final credits of Bioware's 2007 RPG Mass Effect. This raised the band's profile and "a sizeable new audience was exposed to Faunts’ moody, subdued melodies".On November 18, they released a remix album titled Faunts Remixed, featuring remixes by acts such as Mark Templeton and DVAS, which is available exclusively through iTunes. 

The newest Faunts album,Feel.Love.Thinking.Of  was released on February 17th 2009, and is the result of songwriting over the course of the touring across America.
  "Let's breathe a collective sigh of relief, because the five-piece Canadian outfit doesn’t disappoint with this album. Their second proper full-length, Feel... is rife with gauzy, shoegaze-influenced guitar compositions and effects-laden melodies that have a rather tranquilizing effect on one's mind."

SideSteps - The Heartbreak song

SideSteps is a project from Belgium consisted of Mr. sidesteps (Greece) & Dag Otto Braende (Norway).
Mr. sidesteps is along with huge ambitions and passion, creator of one beautifully special piece of music.
If you’re lover of darkness, melodic and powerful tunes, love bands like Depeche Mode or She Wants Revenge, then you're gonna love them a lot!

I was overwhelmed when I find out that they put their official music video for the Heartbreak song on you tube, so I speed up to share it with more music people and hopefully they get more support and love for their work and art, 'cause they deserve it. 
They are a band with great potential and artistic sense, I wish them all luck and success!

Mr. SideSteps says: "Our goal is to express our feelings and find like-minded people who appreciate it, not become another rockstar-idol"
