Björk Tackles The Grid

When using a DAW for electronic music production, it is often frustrating to be shackled to the grid as it often dictates the feel in the rhythmic elements of a composition.

In the songs and apps for Biophilia, Björk tackles this problem of the rigidity of the grid in her exploration of nature, music and technology.

In the very interesting clip below, she describes a much more fluid approach made possible by today’s sophisticated technology and its ability to behave in a much more organic way.
