Biophilia: The Manual Edition


About this album

Biophilia” is the musical project and overall eighth full-length studio album by Icelandic recording artist Björk. The album was released on 10 October 2011, over four years after her previous studio album, “Volta” (2007).
The album is “partly recorded” on an iPad and, as well as a standard CD release, will be released in the form of a series of apps. Biophilia is the world’s “first app album” in collaboration with Apple. Björk has described the project as a multimedia collection “encompassing music, apps, Internet, installations, and live shows”. Material from the album debuted during a concert series which was held in the summer of 2011 at the Manchester International Festival.

Biophilia: The Ultimate Art Edition” includes the Biophilia CD; a second CD with exclusive recordings; “Biophilia: The Manual Edition”, which includes photographs, stories behind the songs, scores and lyrics; and a wooden box with 10 chromed tuning forks, each one adjusted to the tone of a Biophilia track, covering a complete octave in a non-conventional scale (There are two forks which produce the same note and another one which is silent). The ultimate edition is limited to 200 units, each one numbered and made to order, and every single book and fork pack will only be produced once.
