Björk's Biophilia Now Available For iOS


Buying Choices

Björk has released Biophilia - an iOS-based multimedia exploration of music, nature and technology.

Made up of a suite of original music and 'educational artworks and musical artifacts', Biophilia is released as a free app with ten 'in-app experiences'. The individual pieces are accessed as you fly through a three-dimensional galaxy that accompanies the album's theme song Cosmogony. All of the album's songs gradually become available inside Biophilia as interactive experiences, beginning with the first single Crystalline

Features:

  • Three-dimensional galactic interface with the song Cosmogony
  • Access to new songs and apps immediately as they are released
  • Music scores with karaoke playback 
  • Abstract song animation
  • Lyrics
  • Essay
Björk has collaborated with artists, designers, scientists, instrument makers, writers and software developers to create a multimedia exploration of the universe and its physical forces, processes and structures - of which music is a part. Each in-app experience explores the relationships between musical structures and natural phenomena, from the atomic to the cosmic. You can use Biophilia to make and learn about music, to find out about natural phenomena, or to just enjoy Björk's music. 

Pricing and Availability

The Biophilia app is free, but tracks in the multimedia album are available as in-app purchases.
