One by one Bjork is leaking tracks from her latest album and multimedia project, Biophilia.
Addressing the interaction between nature and technology, Biophilia is also a suite of mobile apps for iPhone, iPad and iTouch, where to the initial or “mother” app is free to download, allowing access to 12 different apps. You are then presented with map of a cosmos with 12 planets representing each song/app. Read a full explanation of the app and project over on Day & Night Magazine.
The sound of Biophilia is filtering out like a slowly opening music box. Following ‘Crystalline’ and ‘Cosmonogy’, ‘Virus’ is the third track to be heard, it is more tinkering and delicate but powerful in its imagery: “Like a mushroom / on a tree trunk / as a protein / transmutates / I knock on your skin / and I am in.”
Biophilia, the record, will be released at the end of September via One Little Indian.
