Wooden Elephant

Wooden Elephant does not play songs. Wooden Elephant plays albums. According to this international ensemble, in an era where Spotify and YouTube reign supreme, many people are losing sight of the art of the whole album. At Cross-linx, Wooden Elephant will translate Björk’s classical album, Homogenic, into its own adaptation for string quintet, using additional ‘instruments’ in the form of wine glasses, tuning forks and aluminium foil. Alto violinist Ian Anderson has forged the songs into one body of work: a hallucinating trip that uncovers deeper layers of Bjork’s music, lifting it to an even higher level.
