    SF get ready!

    dear friends

    few years ago doctors found a vocal polyp on me chords ... i decided to go the natural way and for 4 years did stretches and tackled it with different foods and what not . then they discovered better technology and i got tempted into hi tech lazer stuff and i have to say , in my case anyway : surgery rocks ! i stayed quiet for 3 weeks and then started singing and definitely feel like my chords are as good as pre nodule ! it´s been very satisfying to sing all them clear notes again .

    im sorry i had to cancel stuff earlier in the year , didnt want to talk about this until i knew for sure if it would work . so looking forward to singing for you in 2013

    all the warmth ,björk.

    Hopefully I won't have to fly out to California more than once next year...Happy Thanksgiving everyone!


    “You know, like fashion and perfume, and I don't know... the Little Monsters! I don't wanna judge it, but she's obviously interested in other things.” She laughs. “I don't think she's a frustrated music teacher!” For her part, she is taking inspiration from her new favourite band Death Grips. “They really remind me of Public Enemy,” she says, “What attracts me to them is their musical energy and also that it's sort of cacophonic. It's almost like not a genre.”

    She is now considering adopting the fan-funding model to raise money to reprogram Biophilia for Android. “It was always our target that it wouldn't be a coffee-table thing for rich kids. We are going to go to Paris in February and the West Coast of the States in the spring. And then we could go to South Central. And teach them about scales and chords. I'm kidding... No, I'm not, actually!”

    Welcome back!

    BJORK IN PARIS PRESS RELEASE:
    Biophilia premiered last summer at the Manchester International Festival (MIF) followed by a sold out residency in Björk's hometown of Reykjavik, Iceland. Further residencies in New York (at the New York Hall of Science) and Buenos Aires have followed along with festival performances in Europe and South America. Initially commissioned by MIF, the intimate performance finds Björk accompanied by a set of unique musical instruments created by a team including an Icelandic organ builder and a graduate of the MIT Media Lab. Among these creations are four 10-foot pendulum-harps, a MIDI-controlled pipe organ celeste re-fitted with bronze gamelan bars, and twin musical Tesla coils. The performance also features an award-winning 24-piece Icelandic female choir and visuals from the Biophilia Apps and musicians including Manu Delagu and musical director Matt Robertson.

    In addition to the live performance, Björk will also present her Biophilia Educational Program. Featuring interactive science and music workshops for middle-school children, the series leads students on an intensive study of the scientific concepts at the core of Biophilia's songs, including crystalline structures, lunar phases, viruses, and more. Students will also learn to use the Biophilia Apps as tools for music composition and delve into the study of how musicology relates to nature. The city of Reykjavík just announced that the Biophilia educational project will be included in Reykjavik's school curriculum for the next three years. The series debuted at the Manchester International Festival and has also travelled to Reykjavik, New York, Buenos Aires and the Oya Festival in Oslo.
    Björk has collaborated with app developers, scientists, writers, inventors, musicians, and instrument makers to create a unique multimedia exploration of the universe and its physical forces--particularly those where music, nature, and technology meet. The project is inspired by and explores these relationships between musical structures and natural phenomena, from the atomic to the cosmic. "Biophilia's songs are astounding," NPR said. "These songs have room to breathe, employing space and silence as much as melody and harmony. The sparse instrumentation and arrangements become gorgeously intricate meditations on which to build...vocal melodies unfurl more like transcendent devotionals than typical verses, and become even more stirring when accompanied by a chorus of voices that could fill a cathedral."

    Each performance will feature songs from Biophilia, Björk's most interdisciplinary project to date. Stereogum said that "Biophilia is one of 2011's best releases...[T]he songwriting is sharp, the feel immediate and enveloping." The 10-track album, out now on One Little Indian, is available digitally, in CD format and on vinyl. Additionally, each of the 10 songs is available as a special feature of the Biophilia App for iPad, iPhone, and iPod touch. Biophilia was named one of 2011's Best Apps by Apple and landed on year-end best-of lists from NME, Mojo, The Observer, and Uncut, among others. The latest version is available through In-App Purchase, exclusively at iTunes and the App Store .

    Tickets will be available from December 10th at www.avosbillets.com.

    These are the dates:

    Bjork in Paris -- dates

    February 24 Le Cirque En Chantier

    Trying for tickets tomorrow, but I've only been able to find the March 8th show. Has anyone used this ticket site before? I'm not familiar with it at all. Just curious if the show should already be listed (or if it already is, where it's listed), or if it's common for the shows not to be listed until they actually go on sale.

    Thanks for any help.

    well that didn't last long...

    Dear Backers,

    We've decided to stop the Kickstarter campaign. Seems like the costs were too gigantic and we too optimistic, so it seemed cleverest to pause it for now. Things seem to be changing fast; perhaps in a year, even months, there will be a far cheaper way to reprogram this. We are extremely grateful for the help we got, though, and want to extend a big thank you to all our contributors, great and small. You guys generously offered your own hard–earned money to something bigger than yourselves that you believe in, and we are deeply touched by your contributions. Once again, thank you. We are still looking at ways of making this happen so send your email address to kickstarter@bjork.com and we‘ll keep you posted when there‘s any new developments.

    The Biophilia Team x

    December 31 - Matthew Dear/The Sword/Pallbearer
    January 30 - Behemoth
    February 3 - Zola Jesus
    February 10 - 1349
    February 28 - A Place To Bury Strangers
    April 6 - Swans
    April 10-12 - Coachella
    April 17 - Clark/Nosaj Thing
    May 8-10 - Austin Psych Fest
    May 15-17 - Psycho California
    June 24-28 - Glastonbury
