limited edition 180 gram vinyl version. 'drawing restraint 9' is a film by matthew barney with a soundtrack composed by bjork. it represents the first creative collaboration of two of the most protean, dynamic forces in music and fine art. the liquid quality of 'drawing restraint 9' (as material, as allegory, and as setting) allows bjork a unique opportunity to draw upon the full range of her manifold talents, and the result is a stunning new collection of music: delicate single instrument studies for harp, harpsichord, and celeste, large orchestral masses scored for trumpet, trombone, and oboe, sinewy electronic basslines, children's choir, boiling cauldrons of noise, and, throughout, her singular, elemental voice. in a manner recalling the acapella experimentation on the all-vocal 'medulla' album, bjork's voice is here treated as both an instrument and as a strikingly flexible source of texture, heard in close-mic-ed whispers, lo-fi recordings to dictaphone, and in wildly distorted howls. the opening sequence is sung by will oldham
