Björk readies iPad album, Biophilia

on March 17, 2011, 12:20pm

So Damon Albarn has started a trend: the pride and joy of Iceland, Björk, has just announced her own iPad-created album. As NME reports, the acclaimed singer-songwriter is gearing up for the release of Biophilia, an album that was “partly recorded” on Steve Job’s latest toy, and which will be released as a series of apps.

Björk describes the project as a “multi-media project encompassing music, apps, internet, installations and live shows,” and she plans the preview the material during a six-show, three-week residency this summer at the Campfield Market Hall in Manchester, England (via P4K). An issued press release goes on to note that the concerts will include “a bespoke digitally-controlled pipe organ; a 30 foot pendulum that harnesses the earth’s gravitational pull to create musical patterns– creating a unique bridge between the ancient and the modern; a bespoke gamelan-celeste hybrid; and a one-off extraordinary pin barrel harp.” Sounds like a Rammstein set-up.

There’s no ETA on when Biophilia will see release, but it does mark Björk’s second project announced for 2011.
