Fascinating article on Bjork's approach to scoring

I'm too time-pressed to comment at the moment, but imagine this article will generate a lot of interesting and useful discussion, of the role of MIDI vs. notation tools, thoughts about the "spatial size" of sound (however delivered) that best suits a piece, etc.

Seems like it is less an article about her approach to scoring, and more about her latest "piano/vocal book" release.

I would imagine her music would lend itself to a wide range of instrumentation and approaches. Having arranged some of her music for band classes, I found her bass parts, melodies and the way she approached harmony were wonderfully fascinating.

Kids who are learning piano will like to be able to choose artists they love as they study reading notation. It gives music teachers some satisfying material to work with.

One of my older students was working with a songbook of Taylor Swift music-- which worked well for her because she could sing as she played. I think I'd find Björk much more gratifying to listen to than TS (that's just my opinion).

love Bjork her music and the way she presents it to public. A huge fan, got even an assignment at Edubirdie Australia about her creative path and I'm still impressed.

The thing she does is magical. I listen to her work and it goes so far beyond what I understand about music. Not many artists do that to/for me. Yea, she's a true artist. Just saw this. Stunning.
