Biophilia is an iPhone/iPad release of Björk’s latest album created in collaboration with Scott Snibbe and her longtime design collaborators M/M (Paris). Comprising a suite of musical pieces and interactive artworks, Biophilia is released as ten in-app download experiences that are accessed through a three-dimensional galaxy, the album’s theme song Cosmogony. The first single Crystalline, is now available, others soon to follow.
Biophilia opens into a three-dimensional galaxy with a compass allowing navigation between the 3-dimensional universe and a two-dimensional track list. By tapping on stars within the constellations you can access each in-app purchase which includes a combination of album art, games, interactive music notation which you can pan through in realtime, lyrics, and essays that explore Björk’s inspirations for the track.
Biophilia was created by Björk in collaboration with interactive artist and app developer Scott Snibbe, and Björk’s longtime design collaborators M/M (Paris). Crystalline (one of the in-app purchase tracks) was created by Björk in collaboration with Luc Barthelet, developer of The Sims; TouchPress, creator of The Elements app; and M/M (Paris).
Biophilia is available, as an universal app ( iPhone and iPad ), for free in the app store ( + $1.99 in-app purchase )
