Björk’s Cornucopia

On Nov. 13, Björk kicked off the European portion of her critically -acclaimed Cornucopia tour deploying a d&b Soundscape Immersive sound system as the show scales up dramatically from its debut in New York’s new arts center, The Shed, to a comprehensive run of large scale arena dates including London’s 02 arena.

Cornucopia is Björk’s most elaborate stage production to date, incorporating stunning visuals, intricate stage movements and a fully integrated immersive sound design. Cornucopia’s sound was designed by Björk and FoH Sound Engineer John Gale, supported by Southby Productions, and Steve Jones from d&b, utilizing the d&b En-Scene object-based mixing and En-Space room emulation software, running on the DS100 system processor and a comprehensive d&b KSL speaker system as an integral part of the concert performance design.

“Björk wanted the sound for Cornucopia to create an otherworldly sensory experience for the audience that draws all the visual, aural and virtual elements together,” said Jones. “By utilizing Soundscape from the studio all the way through to the show performances, she has delivered of that impressive vision.”

While already utilized in many major musical productions, installations, festivals and concerts, the Cornucopia tour marks one of the most ambitious and extensive applications of the Soundscape system. Björk’s creative vision, combined with d&b’s vision for designing the highest quality audio experiences, provided the opportunity to bring Cornucopia’s multi-sensory world to large-scale arena-based audiences.

To date, Cornucopia shows in the US and Mexico have received universal critical acclaim from audiences and professional critics alike for its stunning visuals and unmatched audio quality.
