Jack – My brother, by Ayisha Ashworth

Inspiration // Friday 14 Oct 2011

Eleven years ago my first brother, Jack, was born. At just three years old, I happily welcomed this new little boy into our family. But, only eight months later he was diagnosed with pneumococcal meningitis. He was rushed into hospital in a critical condition. Unbeknown to me, my brother was fighting the barrier between life and death. Several torturous days lay before my parents as they waited to see if he would pull through from his coma.

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. // more
