Björk Launches Biophilia Website

Björk’s next “album” Biophilia is a multimedia project that “celebrates how sound works in nature, exploring the infinite expanse of the universe, from planetary systems to atomic structure.” To give folks the time and place to absorb those and other concepts, Björk’s created a new website. (It’s suggested you use Google Chrome or Safari to properly view the 3-D elements.) Once over there and up-to-date, you’ll find an audio clip of Björk talking about the physics of sound, describing Biophilia, and suggesting how it relates to (and continues) 2007’s Volta. The official press release goes further, describing it as “a multi-media project encompassing music, apps, internet, installations and live shows.” You’ll get a good sense of this once you start clicking and dragging at (Full disclosure: I’m writing the “artist notes” for the record.)
