Icelandic singer Björk will perform her Vulnicura track Quicksand in Tokyo today during the world’s first ever VR and 360 live stream

Björk is set to make history this afternoon as she plans to perform Quicksand, a track from her recent album Vulnicura, during the world’s first ever 360 degree, virtual reality live stream.

The public stream is part of an ongoing collaboration between Björk and production team Dentsu Lab Tokyo, and is running as part of the Björk Digital exhibition which opens at the Miraikan Museum Tokyo tomorrow (29 June).

The performance, live streamed from the Mirakan (the National Museum of Emerging Science and Innovation) in Tokyo will see Björk wearing a special ‘Rottlace’ mask, created using Stratasys 3D printing technology and designed by Professor Neri Oxman of MIT Media Lab and the Mediated Matter Group.

The stream will be available at 12PM GMT / 8PM UTC today via the Dentsu Lab website.
