It's bee-yerk (rather than bee-york) because of the umlaut over the "O".

May 7 release of Volta!!
http://uk.news.launch.yahoo.com/dyna...ml&e=l_news_dm

newwwbjork.jpg

Here is some interesting information about the history of the volta. I can't wait to see what she does in her videos!!

The Volta (Vuel-ta) is known as a "Renaissance dance" (a period in time) which came from Italy (some say Provence, France) as a peasant dance in the early 16th century and later into Switzerland, then to France (Volte ) and ending in Germany . The name Volta means "turning." It is said that the Italian Volta was first introduced by the "Count of Sault " to the Paris court in 1556. Later, around 1581,Catherine De Medici (1518-1589) introduced the Volta to the French court of Versailles .

The Volta is said to be the first of the Waltzes or the forerunner of the Waltz when combined with other round dances. The Girls of Provence danced the Volta in the Great feast of Bayonne in 1565.

-- The Tordion (Galliarde ) was used for a few measures to start the Volta. During the Volta, the man faces his partner instead of standing alongside or opposite each other (which was very scandalous), and held her very close. The leader turns his partner around several times and then helps her take a high Saute Majer (Leap) into the air (with the skirts shamelessly flying high), as well as he, at times leaping with her (or just after her.) The Volta was usually taken with two single steps and a double step with a hop on the 5th. (5 counts) and was done in 3/4 time. The name "Volta" means turning or to turn.

With the right foot raised high in the air, the dancers hopped on the left and turned at a ninety degree angle, then took a long stride, and another quarter turn then sprang high in the air again making another quarter turn, each pattern consisted of three quarter turns and a leap.

-- This dance was claimed shameful and indecent and the entire dance being filthy. It was reported that "the Volta brought forth many murders and miscarriages" (not true) and "should be heavily looked into by local police." Madame de Valentinois , in the time of Francis the First , was very fond of this dance, and while dancing it sang the psalms translated by Clement Marot.

i'm not really thrilled about the timbaland collab. he's too mainstream for her iconoclasm,no? but i'll reserver my judgement till i hear it though. nevertheless,the other collabs sound great. antony from antony and the johnson's.

about the photographers:

http://showstudio.com/contributors/287

Unfortunately, I cannot find the name of the designer... since the only credit I can find is for Warren de Preez and Nick Thornton Jones.

Also, this just in: Bjork discusses Timbaland collaboration

http://www.nme.com/news/bjork/27064

And her primary website with tons of photographs and information (maybe you can find the designer there?):

http://bjork.com

thanks liberty bell. i'm thinking that it might be an unknown icelandic designer since it's not so distinctive of anybody i'd know of.
