What is a gravity harp? How can you compose a bass line using bolts of electricity? What would happen if David Attenborough narrated a gig instead of a nature programme? How much fake hair can one small, Icelandic pop singer’s head support?
The answers to all these questions and more will be answered in London later this year. Björk is bringing her weird and wonderful ‘Biophilia’ show to town for one concert at Alexandra Palace on September 3, and as well as giant musical pendulums and singing Tesla coils it includes an 18-piece female choir, enough big video screens to make your eyes explode and, of course, the enormous lungs and pristine pop of Björk Guðmundsdóttir. The cheapest tickets are £65, so yes, it’s pricy – but you won’t be seeing anything like it in the city again any time soon.
