Watch: Björk's "Mutual Core" Video Debuts on MOCAtvBjörk’s music video for "Mutual Core," from her album Biophilia, directed by LA filmmaker Andrew Thomas Huang, premiered today on MOCAtv. Huang's work was recently honored at the Cannes Lions Saatchi&Saatchi New Directors Showcase and was awarded the Special Jury Prize for Experimental Short at this year's Slamdance Film Festival. The Guardian describes "Mutual Core" as “the world’s first song about tectonic plates set to a ravey mesh of bleeps and whooshes.” See a series of stills from the video at nonesuch.com/media and watch the "Mutual Core" video below.
MOCAtv, which launched October 1, 2012, is a new online contemporary art video channel, and a digital extension of the education and exhibition program of The Museum of Contemporary Art, Los Angeles (MOCA). MOCAtv is the first and only dedicated art channel to be part of YouTube's original channel initiative announced October 2011, and one of fourteen new, original channels that make up YouTube Education, a collection of more than 700,000 videos on a wide range of educational topics from math to science, history to geography. MOCA is the first contemporary art museum to associate with a major media company in an online video-programming venture of this scale, and the new channel will feature curated, original and acquired videos to inform, educate and engage the global, online audience about contemporary art and its intersection with film, video, music, performance, dance, music, comedy, and more.
The original album track "Mutual Core" can be heard on Björk's critically lauded 2011 album, Biophilia, released on One Little Indian / Nonesuch Records and available in the Nonesuch Store. On November 19, One Little Indian will release bastards, an album of remixed tracks from Biophilia, available at bjork.com.
