    The website was updated. According to her, it is the "first stage of the biophilia project." I've been clicking/dragging for about 10 minutes now. Can't... stop...

    There are one or two songs that are pretty good, but the rest are a mess.

    via CoS:

    http://consequenceofsound.net/2011/0...ils-biophilia/

    Björk has always been the epitome of creativity in all that she does. Whether through her eye-catching wardrobe choices or her almost entirely a capella album Medúlla, she’s continually been at the forefront of the intersection of style, technology, and music since her debut. Continuing her M.O. as an innovator, her latest endeavor, Biophilia, will see the Icelandic songbird adapt the technology of the iPad into a truly sonic experience that pushes the boundaries of what truly makes an album.

    Björk’s recently redesigned webpage will serve as a springboard for the all-app album, a first in the music biz. And while the release will see traditional formats, the true innovation lies in the apps themselves. As it’s a massive undertaking, the album will be released as a core app with each of the 10 album tracks individually getting their own app.

    Along with the songs, the LP will feature a number of interactive video elements. According to the Guardian, the song “Virus” tells the tale of a battle between a cell and a virus as soundtracked by the beeps, strings, and docile tones of Björk. The album and live presentation will also showcase custom organs created by Icelandic organ crafter Björgvin Tómasson that allow for MIDI integration (thus, according to Tómasson, leading to the creation of a new instrument, the “gameleste”). In fitting with the reinvention a 100-year-old instrument, the notion for the project developed from the dichotomy that modern Iceland strikes in the balance of the organic side of nature and history versus the modern conveniences of technology.

    “In Iceland, everything revolves around nature, 24 hours a day,” she told Oor magazine in 1997. “Earthquakes, snowstorms, rain, ice, volcanic eruptions, geysers … very elementary and uncontrollable. But on the other hand, Iceland is incredibly modern; everything is hi-tech.”

    With the release schedule and functions of each of the apps, the project allows for more personalized interactions in order to create a unique user experience that will grow and change as features are introduced and expanded. The point of the endeavor, according to interactive artist Scott Snibe, who produced the app, is to integrate the various visual and auditory aspects into one larger experience.

    “Björk’s put herself way at the forefront here by saying, ‘We’ll release this album and these apps at the same time and they’re all part of the same story,’ “Snippe said. “The app is an expression of the music, the story and the idea.”

    Björk’s vision will come to fruition later this year with a live multimedia showcase taking residence at Campfield Market Hall in Manchester, UK, with the full itinerary below. Biophilia is scheduled to be released sometime in 2011.

    I admire Bjork on some level for creatively utilizing the medium of the moment, but there's something very disposable feeling about integrating pop tech into your album release. She's sort of guaranteeing her project an expiration date and loss of novelty.

    Post was initially released on CD, cassette, vinyl and minidisc. In addition, Post was available for a limited time in the UK and Europe as a digipack with an extended lyric booklet and poster, or as a digipack contained in a clear PVC wallet (with a strap to carry it). The album was released for a limited time in the UK as a cassette in similar packaging. Post was also available for a limited time on pink vinyl. In 2000, the album was made available on 180g heavyweight vinyl and in 2008, One Little Indian reissued the album on DMM 200g heavyweight vinyl. In the same year, Post was made available on CD as a vinyl replica. The album was re-released in 2006 as a DualDisc including new DTS 96/24 5.1-channel surround sound mixes and the album's music videos, available separately or as part of the (____surrounded): box set.

    Okay, Ryan. But sifting through touchscreen libraries of Boobs 4 Ur iPhone Free! and Angry Birds Haiti to find a download that's supposed to let me feel more connected to the music I'm hearing is still going to feel cheap and ephemeral just like everything else that happens on a hubristic telephone. I don't want to be plugged in. I don't want to be a pirate.

    Yeah but there are ads over the nipples unless you want to pay 2.99 for the full.

    I have the vinyl version of Post and both my vinyl and CD have the original version of Possibly Maybe on them.

    edit: that and all her albums on CD is pretty much the extent of my Bjork collection though.

    YES! Can we revive my Bjork for Coachella thread for 2012 now? Has she met the "new music" requirement now?

    Remember how good it was in 2007!?
