This month we’ve been basking in the creative headspace of Björk. Together with the New York Hall of Science, we co-presented the US debut of the live show for her latest album, Biophilia, complete with unique performances, invented instruments, and a revolutionary set of track specific iPhone and iPad apps that allow you to rearrange and remix the elements of each song.
Biophilia is more than just an album—it’s an ethos, an ecosystem unto itself. With this project, Björk combines notions of music, nature, and technology to demonstrate the inherent connectedness that exists between ourselves and every aspect of our modern environment. Biophilia is art. It is music, and the instruments used to play music. It is a set of experiences, games, visualizations, and overall a learning experience regardless of what you know already. It is the immensity of this concept that has captivated us during our time with Biophilia.
We’ve explored the instruments developed and built just for Björk, hosted a demonstration of the Biophilia apps by designers Scott Snibbe and Max Weisel, spoke with the woman behind her outlandish outfits, brought you a guest article by her longtime collaborator Leila Arab, revisited her past music, and assisted in her mission to educate.
After all that, there’s still a performance to be seen, and that’s Björk’s live show at Roseland Ballroom on March 5th, the last show in her New York residency.
