Singer releases debut song from 'Biophilia'
The debut track from Bjork‘s ‘multimedia project’ ‘Biophilia’ has hit the internet. The track is entitled ‘Crystalline’, and you can hear it below.
As explained by the singer, ‘Biophilia’ is a “multimedia project encompassing music, apps, internet, installations and live shows”. The multi-faceted iPad application is set to feature interactive games and videos and will be directed by Michel Gondry.
On her own website Bjork described the project as “a continuation of ‘Volta’, and whereas ‘Volta’ is more about anthropology, this is kind of without the humans. Both swimming out, like the planets, but also swimming in, into the atoms.
“And, in that way aesthetically, sympathising with sound and how sounds move and the physics of sound. And how notes in a room behave; how they bounce off walls and between objects and is kind of more similar to how planets and microscopic things work.”
Bjork is set to start a six-night residency as part of the Manchester International Festival, performing at the city’s Campfield Market Hall from June 30 and then every Monday and Thursday until July 16.
‘Crystalline’ will be officially released on June 30.
