Biophilia challenges the way we think about music

Inspiration , News // Tuesday 11 Oct 2011

Biophilia is an extraordinary and innovative multimedia exploration of music, nature and technology by the musician Björk.  All of the album’s songs are available inside Biophilia as interactive experiences: Crystalline, Virus, Moon, Thunderbolt, Sacrifice, Mutual Core, Hollow, Solstice, and Dark Matter.

Biophilia opens into a three-dimensional galaxy with a compass allowing navigation between the 3-dimensional universe and a two-dimensional track list. Take a closer look by tapping on stars within the constellations and you’ll see that each is an in-app purchase that gives access to the inspired combination of artifacts for each new Björk song: interactive art and games, abstract animations, lyrics, and essays that explore Björk’s inspirations for the track. These artifacts bring together conventional and alternative ways of representing and making music to create an environment for entertainment and learning. Biophilia challenges the way we think about and feel music. Here, for the first time, is a music album that exploits the multimedia capabilities of mobile interactive technologies allowing users to feel the rumble and vibrations of the music through their hand held device.
