Icelandic musician Björk’s Biophilia app has made its way to Android, after being available on iOS for some time. The app does much more than provide access to Björk tunes; it’s a huge, multimedia event packed into a smartphone.
The app includes original music by Björk as well as interactive artwork and musical artifacts. The Biophilia app provides users with access to all of the tracks on Björk’s Biophilia album, as well as delivering “ten in-app experiences that are assessed as you fly through a three-dimensional galaxy.”
“Björk has collaborated with artists, designers, scientists, instrument makers, writers and software developers to create an extraordinary multimedia exploration of the universe and its physical forces, processes and structures – of which music is a part. Each in-app experience is inspired by and 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.”
Here are some features of the app:
- Three-dimensional galactic interface with the song Cosmogony
- Nine fully interactive song apps
- Music scores with karaoke playback
- Abstract song animation
So Björk fans, head over to the Google Play Store and download the Biophilia app for $12.99, and prepare to have your mind blown.
