Watch Bjork’s 360-Degree Music Video for ‘Stonemilker’
Never the bore, experimental Icelandic artist Björk recently released a music video for her song "Stonemilker," and the clip was filmed in 360 degrees and made especially for the Oculus Rift virtual reality platform. Experience the video below and use the arrows on the top left corner to control the viewing angle.
The video, filmed at Beach Island in Iceland, was previously on exhibition at New York’s Museum of Modern Art as part of a look back on Björk’s career. Engadget described experiencing the video with a virtual reality headset as "lovely":
Andrew Thomas Huang's seven-minute virtual reality video for "Stonemilker" is actually quite lovely. Bjork herself stands before you on the same coastline projected in the dome outside your helmet of technology. Wearing a billowing green dress, she sings about the moment when one person in a relationship sees things clearly and the other doesn't; when their ability to feel changes and blooms while their partner's calcifies. She spins around you, and you in turn spin around on the stool to follow her, and before long she's split into two and three people filling your view. Rather than a ghostly effect, it all feels like living in the moment of a memory.
"Stonemilker" comes from Björk's newest album Vulnicura.
