Scaruffi on Björk

>She just is fundamentally a cold calculating mind that has trouble expressing an emotion but is very skilled at wrapping that emotion with all sorts of theories and practices. Last but not least, her voice is still an acquired taste (never acquired by me).

    Aphex Twin on refusing to work with Björk

    >If I‘m going to do a track with someone I’d have to be their friend. I’d have to spend some time with them and you’d have to come around my house and drink fifty cups of tea and smoke some spliffs and get pissed. You can’t just send me the track. That’s really cold and I think she (Björk) didn’t really understand because she has done it that way all her life. I think she has forgotten how to relate to people.

    Sounds like Björk truly is autistic. Based B

      Speaking of more commercial artists – both
      Madonna and Björk have asked to work with you,
      haven’t they?

      (laughing) Yeah, off course! They all want it!

      What is the difference between the two of them?

      Björk’s loads more interesting. A million times
      more interesting – personality wise. Madonna is
      pretty normal, she is like a very famous „Sharon“.

      They seem to have a similar interest in picking
      young and upcoming artists to work with.

      Yeah, it’s pretty similar. I can’t guarantee it because
      I don’t know her so well, but knowing Björk
      though, I think she does it out of (pauses)... Björk
      is like a little girl in a sweets shop. She’s like: „Oh I
      love this, I love this! I want this, I want this!“
      Madonna is more like brutal. Like: „These are
      trendy, I can keep myself young and modern if I use
      them!“ You know? Björk got that as well obviously
      but her motivation is that she just loves the musicians and would love to work with them. She picks
      people that aren’t really that famous.

      Why did you turn down Björk?

      Björk was also on Tom’s (Jenkinson) case. She’s
      been on everyone’s case. She also did some stuff
      with Bogdan (Raczynski). He was going to do a
      track on her album and they didn’t use it. They
      were quite sort of crafty and business. They just
      wanted to give him ten percent but I think if you
      work with someone you should always get fifty
      percent. It doesn’t seem very respectful. But she doesn’t get involved with that stuff she has people
      doing it for her in case it goes wrong. It’s a bid sad
      in some ways. I mean she wants to work with the
      people she likes but at the same time she’s really
      obsessed with „this is the newest thing“, you know
      „goldfish memory“. For some reason people always
      think that the best things are the most recent
      things.

        I’m actually quite surprised that Björk wanted to
        work with you. I would have thought that you are
        too established for her.

        (laughing) Yeah, that’s what I thought. I mean she’s also worked with other old people like that string quartett and stuff like that. And they are not
        famous. If I really wanted to work with her I could
        make it happen but I’m not really that bothered. If
        I’d work with singers I’d rather work with someone
        no one has ever heard of. Like opera singers or
        things like that.

        Wouldn’t you be interested in doing something with
        Björk the musician rather then with only Björk the
        vocalist.

        Oh yeah. I always tell her that anyway. I always
        say to her: „I don’t understand why you get all
        these people you should just do it by yourself.“
        And she’s been trying. She got her laptop and
        everything. Maybe she will do that when she’s really old and everyone thinks that she’s not pretty
        anymore. I think then she’ll have to do it. Because
        then she won’t be able to get all the little techno
        boys to work with her because they will be like
        „Björk? Oh yeah, you mean that old woman. I’m
        not going to work for her!“ At the moment she can
        just phone them up, talk some Icelandic and they
        will be willing to do everything. ... With Björk she’s
        really business when it come to things like that.
        When you deal with Björk she‘s like: „Ok, I’m
        going to fax you the details and you are going to
        send me that...“ If I‘m going to do a track with
        someone I’d have to be their friend. I’d have to
        spend some time with them and you’d have to
        come around my house and drink fifty cups of tea
        and smoke some spliffs and get pissed. You can’t
        just send me the track. That’s really cold and I
        think she didn’t really understand because she has done it that way all her life. I think she has forgotten how to relate to people.

          Björk on Aphex Twin in 2017

          Icelandic legend Björk is recognized for her unique vocal chops and innovative talent, so it comes as no surprise that she has a longstanding relationship with fellow electronic innovator Aphex Twin.
          The two artists previously toured together in 1995 and have remained friends ever since. In a recent interview with Red Bull Music Academy, Björk opened up about how they’ve continued to be pen pals.

          “That’s what makes the internet so amazing as well. Me and Richard we still send each other songs all the time.”

          Björk also elaborated on how Aphex Twin has helped her grow as an artist, supporting her music and showing her new gear: “Richard has always been incredibly supportive of me and has emailed me a couple of times and told me about equipment that he knew I would get into. For example, he told me about the Korg 4-track dictaphone that helped me a lot to make 'Medúlla.'”

      She's infp

      she's ISFP/SEI/Si-Fe
      not extraverted nor a logical/T type
      she's primarily interested in new, exotic ideas for her music, not some personal, transcendent truth - Ne valued type, which for SEI is especially important because it is their suggestive function
      she effectively manipulates and expresses emotions in interviews and in music - Fe type
      she comes off to me as somewhat shy and distancing - introverted type
      she has somewhat naive and emotionally charged statements, does not seem very reasonable or level-headed - ethical/F type
      she does not seem like someone with a subtle or particularly sophisticated mind, has a penchant for vulgar speech - first part more sensing type, second part sensing and Fe valued type

          it's socionics, typology system based on Jung like MBTI, but imo more experentially accurate and closer to descriptions by Jung
          people who based their jung type knowledge on online MBTI descriptions often get them wrong, like thinking Bjork is an extravert or a logical type

                he does not appear extraverted and intuitive to me, and there's nothing in his behaviour that would point me to those types

                also, i *generally* agree with the typings of the guy who made this site about the types of famous people:

                *not much in his behaviour, that is
                for example, his interest in Ni areas seems quite sophomoric and dilettanish, in contrast to Harrison who dedicated himself to it

        You’re retarded if you think she’s a Se user over Ne.
        She’s clearly INFP, maaaybe ENFP, and if you saw any interview with her you’d know she speak in metaphors all the time and is quite abstract. Her Si usage is also present when talking about her nation, its traditions and history.
        ISFP would be someone like Carly Rae Jepsen. No offense to ISFPs but they’re usually quite unintelligent and bland when speaking due to Se which is the most normie function there is. There are exceptions but still, you can just tell when someone is a sensor

          she values Ne, not Se
          ISFP/SEI is Si-Fe, not Fi-Se (MBTI has erroneous notation for the introverted types by calling the P types J types and vice versa)
          >if you saw any interview with her you’d know she speak in metaphors all the time and is quite abstract.
          i percieve her metaphors and her lyricism in general to be stilted and nonsensical, lack of grasp of abstractions which is more common for sensing types
          >Her Si usage is also present when talking about her nation, its traditions and history.
          not related to Si
          another MBTI error
          >Carly Rae Jepsen
          possibly INFP/IEI/Ni-Fe
          >No offense to ISFPs but they’re usually quite unintelligent and bland when speaking
          unintelligence while speaking - weak logic, mostly
          bland - weak ethics, mostly
          >you can just tell when someone is a sensor
          agreed, the same with all the other dichotomies

            ISFps have good logic and high ethics.
            Her nonsensical use of metaphors can be attributed to Se valuing the chosen objects as forms of description over the connection the metaphors create.
            Hence not being an Ne user.
            Her being an ISFp is an interesting notion, but that doesn't really fit well with my former references of the type when considering appearance and behavior. Too jumpy, reactive and embracing of external sensory intensity.

              For reference I consider Dave Gahan from Depeche Mode to be ISFp.
              My father is one too and he'll consider people like Bjork as nonsensical and out of their mind.

    I don't understand the critique, she made SOVL stuff in the 80s with The Sugarcubes, then released Pop bangers in the 90s, memed a little in the 00s and has gone to schizo land in the 2010s. That is better development than most female "artists".
