Preview Björk's Biophillia NYC Residency [Photo Gallery]

Tuesday night, Björk appeared on The Cobert Report to promote her month-long NYC residency and education series, which kicks off tomorrow night at the New York Hall of Science. On Colbert, we also got a peak at her live setup, which was put together by 20-year-old Max Weisel, musical director and developer of three of the album’s 10 apps.

But the TV appearance only offers a glimmer of what fans can expect from the live show. In addition to her wild wardrobe (including an outlandish crop of fiery orange hair) and accompaniment from a full Icelandic choir, she also performs with custom-built instruments (more on those later) and projects live remixed visuals from the Biophilia apps. Click through the slideshow above from her Iceland and Manchester residencies to get an idea of what this all looks like.

Her NYC residency, split between the New York Hall of Science and the Roseland Ballroom, will also be presented in tandem with an education series for children, which Björk has developed in order to teach the similarity between biological and musical structures, and also to present an alternative and more interactive way to learn—we wish our music classes would have been this fun.
