High-res version

Björks coming album, Biophilia will be a multi-media endeavour which encompasses her music, installations, live shows and also an iTunes app about our solar system.

is a collaboration between Björk and the Manchester International Festival (MIF) and will come out this summer. Björk aims to educate and explore ideas like how sound works in nature, the infinite expanse of the universe and planetary systems to atomic structures.

The multi-media extravaganza will be a mix of music, nature and technology and will feature a wide range of specially conceived and crafted instruments, among them a 9 meter long pendulum that harnesses the Earth’s gravitational pull to create musical patterns.
