The Knife were asked somewhat recently by Danish performance group Hotel Pro Forma to write the score for their opera based on Charles Darwin and his book ‘On the Origin of the Species’… the music is a bit weird/unnerving but certainly that’s what they were going for (mind you, it’s awesome as well). The Knife collaborated with artists Mt. Sims and Planningtorock for the project. Click this to buy.
