Having started out as a classical pianist, “with a penchant for building his own computers and synthesisers”, Andrew Melchior has written, performed and produced music for himself and others and is now also renowned for his experiments in digital media, for artists including Massive Attack and Björk. Melchior acted as Technical Advisor to Björk for work featured in Björk Digital, an ongoing touring virtual reality exhibition featuring VR music videos for the singer’s ninth studio album, Vulnicura. Björk and her collaborators are widely seen to be at the cutting edge of digital experimentation in music. For ‘BBC Introducing Live’ Andrew will share with the attendees insights into the multithreaded approach to creative collaboration and content delivery that Björk and her team undertook to deliver the project.
The talk will be accompanied by a selection of the VR album works being displayed at Tobacco Docks, including the first ever UK showing of ‘Quicksand’ in advance of the full commercial release of Vulnicura VR this Autumn on One Little Indian Records.
