I'm sorry I have not been around much lately. As I said when I started this blog, we'll see how good I am about maintaining fresh content. Life has kept me busy with work, trips, and events. Last month I celebrated my birthday and took a family trip to NYC. This month has been filled with local outdoor festivals, more birthday parties, and lots of good food and climbing.

What truly moved me though, was the video experience created for her song Black Lake, from her new album, Vulnicura. While you can find a version of the video on YouTube, you can only experience the work as it was intended in the special black box theater designed for the exhibit. There were two screens on opposite walls that played complementary, but different versions of the video and over 30 speakers around the room, each playing a different instrument from the song. What that created was an immersion into the intense feelings of loss and grief that the song portrays. It was beautiful.
