NEW CLIP DIRECTED BY MICHEL GONDRY;
BIOPHILIA OUT SEPTEMBER 27
Björk has unveiled the video for "Crystalline" off her upcoming album Biophilia out September 27. The clip was directed by Michel Gondry.
Biophilia is a multi-media project, comprising a studio album, apps, a new website, custom-made musical instruments, live shows and educational workshops. In addition to the physical album, the songs will also be featured within their accompanying Biophilia App.
Every app has its own theme (in connection with its corresponding song) and combines a natural element with a musicological feature. The layers of content in each app include: an interactive game based on the song’s scientific and musical subject matter, a musical animation of the song, an animated score, lyrics, and an academic essay.
The Biophilia live show will run as a three-year world tour of six-week residencies in eight different cities. In each city Björk will perform Biophilia twice a week, using the apps to play live a set of custom built musical instruments and evoking an atmosphere similar to being inside the app itself.
Lastly, a 90-minute documentary on the Biophilia project is currently being filmed by Pulse Films. The film will be an exploration of Björk's creative process as she puts together the different elements of the project.
