Review: Biophilia by Björk
We were very pleasantly surprised by Björk’s latest project, Biophilia. Björk stepped out of her comfort zone – if you can call it that – by adding the fascinating realm of musical interactivity to her signature mix of music, art, fashion and performance. The Icelandic siren beckons you into her evocative nebula of vector-esque graphics, where you create your own soundscapes by manipulating Björk’s musical structures. Biophilia combines visuals and sound in a new, fresh and immersive way. It is is visual music in the purest sense.
To realize this project, Björk worked together with the accomplished media artist Scott Snibbe. Scott works in different fields, from the mobile platforms to physical motion-tracking installations for museums such as Moma & Whitney.
