Björk meets medical animation

Björk is releasing her much awaited album and ipad application, Biophilia, using the talents of medical artist and animator, Drew Berry, to showcase her newest musical undertakings.

 

Not only is this release an epic technological advancement, involving applications for fan use, it highlights a strangely symbiotic relationship between art, music and science. You can visit her vamped up official website complete with interactives paralleling her new direction.

One of the features on this album is titled, “Virus.” Björk has stated “virus is about the love between a virus and a cell, a symbiotic relationship: not femme fatale but virus fatale. in the app you can try to save the cell by fighting the virus, but to hear the whole song, the virus must win! and as with crystalline and cosmogony apps, virus also has lyrics, animation, musical score and essay.”

Here’s a small sampling of virus via youtube:
