Journal: But you have worked with the King's Singers and the Black Dyke Brass Band.
Evelyn Glennie: Yes, well, the King's Singers, what can I say? They're such an institution. This was very much an experiment. That kind of collaboration is something you can really do once, and then you move on, really. Someone like Bjork, given the nature that she works in, she's constantly moving on. She moved on with her producer. She moved on with her percussionist. She doesn't spend a lot of time with people. And that's good, because she's always "What next?"
Evelyn: about telegram and my spine from blah magazine:
"Okay," chirrups Bjork. "Tank you. I actually feel quite awkward because it
isn't my work. I did one remix myself, 'You've Been Flirting Again', and
obviously me and Evelyn Glennie, that was just us [the only new track on
Telegram is 'My Spine', a deliciously sparse collaboration between the all-hearing Icelandic singer and the deaf Scottish percussionist]. She
lives in Oxford and I just went to her house and we ate a lot of biscuits
and drank a lot of tea and she took out exhaust pipes and we just made up
that song and recorded it in ten minutes.
