10 Digital Editions of Surrealist Journals from Argentina, Chile & Spain (1928-67)
Fans of magical realism know that Latin American writers seem to possess a unique mastery of the tradition, and anyone who thinks of surrealism in visual art will soon think of Salvador Dalí, who began and ended his distinctive career in his native Spain.

spot on!!!
 
Björk - "I think in the States when technology is related to music, people think it's cheating. People think you just buy a machine and press "on." Which I find amazing in a society famous for special effects, where the guys who made Star Wars, and George Lucas' team, and the people who made Terminator, are thought of as being creative, even though they're using computers. It's not like they bought the computer and pressed "on" and Terminator changed to liquid steel or whatever. The public realizes that that took a very creative mind, but for some reason they just can't take that into music. I'm still going through these ridiculous battles when I do TV shows in the States - it's like, "Oh, will Björk play live?" "Yes." "Who's gonna play with her?" "Oh, Marc Bell, who's playing a drum machine." "Oh, that's not live." And it's like, I just start yawning. But if he brought a drum kit, would that be live? "Yes."

We've even got leftovers of that in England, because I remember doing a show called "The White Room." They had many bands on, and everything would be white, you could only see instruments, no amplifiers, nothing. They would put white over everything, it's a very graphic show, and I had two people playing with me live there, which I was very proud of, I had Graham Massey from 808 State, playing a computer, doing a complete live mix, and Howie B. We were doing two different songs, both of them were working together, they had tons of the same stuff, and they set it all up, very organic. And the show would start putting white towels over all the computers. And they were kind of asking them questions like, "So, can't you play a tambourine or something?" I was furious! You're talking to the pioneers, here...you're gonna put towels over their equipment and ask them to hold a tambourine? It's like "Get a life!"

So people have very strange ideas about this. And Marc Bell, one of the reasons I love so much working with him...like the rhythm on the first song on Homogenic, "The Hunter." He came to Spain just for a laugh. And he heard the song, I'd done the vocals and the bass line and the chord structure, but there were no beats. I explained to him the beats and he recorded it live in one take, and the beat changes through the whole song. He did that on a 909. It amazes me that people still can't grasp that live element of it.
