Bjork says new album, 'Biophilia,' fuses music, technology and nature through iPad apps
REYKJAVIK, Iceland (AP) ' Icelandic star Bjork says her new album fuses the natural world and iPad apps to invent a music genre she calls an "appbox."
"Biophilia" ' and a host of applications representing specific tracks on the album ' are out Monday, and are meant to immerse listeners in a complete audio-visual experience.
Speaking to AP ahead of the launch, Bjork said she sees "the structure and shapes of songs" during the creative process.
That led her to work with a team of iPad app designers and musicians. She describes the app technology as "more like an accessory," and says many fans will listen to the album in a traditional way.
The beauty of Bjork's homeland is an inspiration. The singer says the link between the environment and music is "effortless and natural."
