Björk - Biophilia FLAC album

the full biophilia app suite is out now on ipad, iphone and ipod touch. all songs are taken the album 'biophilia'.

The film features Björk performing tracks from her Biophilia Tour, which started in June 2011 and ended in September 2013. It was filmed at Alexandra Palace in London on 3 September 2013, and had a theatrical premiere at the Tribeca Film Festival on 26 April 2014 with screenings across the world throughout the same year.

Redirected from Biophilia (Björk album)). Biophilia is the seventh studio album by Icelandic singer Björk. It was released on 5 October 2011, by One Little Indian Records and distributed by Nonesuch Records in North America and by Universal Music Group in the rest of the world.

Biophilia is the eighth studio album by Icelandic recording artist Björk. Björk promoted the album with the Biophilia Tour, which began at the Manchester International Festival in June 2011 and ended in September 2013. I was off all my record deals, so I felt I was off the grid, so in that sense it was kind of crossroads project for me.

Album · 2011 · 13 Songs. An extended ode to the natural world, Biophilia buzzes with bright, pure tones: Moon sets Björk’s slowly swelling harmonies against tranquil harp, and Crystalline applies the same stripped-down aesthetic to chimes and crisp, staccato drums. Dark Matter quivers with rich, resonant pipe organ, while Mutual Core explodes a church-like hush into bold, distorted percussion, and Nattura features shuddering, heavy-metal drumming by Lightning Bolt’s Brian Chippendale. Great, cosmic forces hold sway: Rarely has Björk gotten so close to the essence of things in her music.

Biophilia marks Björk's eighth full-length release, and represents her definitive attempt to create an ecosystem around her work. 90-minute film documenting its creation. Beyond that, the album itself purports to engage with some pretty momentous themes, with song titles like "Thunderbolt", "Dark Matter", and "Cosmogony" and imagery focusing on time, space, and the natural world. The stakes feel even higher in light of Björk's mottled output over the past decade.

Biophilia is the musical project and eighth full-length studio album from Icelandic singer Björk. The album was released on October 10, 2011, over four years after her last original studio effort Volta (2007). The album is "partly recorded" on an iPad and will be released in the form of a series of apps. Biophilia will be the world's "first app album" in collaboration with Apple.

In 2011, Icelandic artist Björk released her eighth full-length studio album Biophilia, yet the Biophilia project has continued beyond an album into performances, interactive applications, educational programs, and now a concert film. Working with co-directors Peter Strickland and Nick Fenton, Björk created this concert film for the Biophilia world tour’s final performance, at Alexandra Palace in London. In addition to the always fascinating Björk herself, the performance features an angelic Icelandic choir, Austrian percussionist Manu Delago, and numerous unusual instruments.

Björk is often painted as some quirky sprite, but her fantasyland is our own world. Photograph: Inez Van Lamsweerde and Vinoodh Matadin Bjork. By Brent DiCrescenzo Posted: Tuesday October 11 2011. Björk’s eighth is an album of emotional and scientific marvel, a bit like having a Viking soprano serenade you as you watch Discovery’s Planet Earth in high-def. The Icelandic fashionista began this record as a project for National Geographic, and its genesis shows. It wows in the same way a chemistry experiment can seem like a magic trick.

At the begin i could hear many crackle, not big but yes i was disappointed. Then after a good wash and some listening, so the stylus polished the groove walls, the sound improved much. I would recommend this pressing. Bass is huge and records almost perfect flat

This has the same slightly odd sound as all the other Biophilia releases. As I argued on the page for the original UK vinyl - this is cut from the same stampers - I don't think it's anything to do with the vinyl master. As I said there, it sounds quite low on treble and strangely lacking in sparkle for such a delicate, intricate album. But I own the CD of this and it suffers from the same problem. There's an interesting interview with Mandy Parnell at Sound on Sound - http://www.soundonsound.com/sos/jan12/articles/biophilia.htm - where she discusses how she remastered the album a couple of times until Bjork was happy, which did involve fleshing out the mid-spectrum and perhaps limiting the top and bottom ends slightly. I can only guess what we're hearing is exactly what Bjork wanted the record to sound like ('dirt, muscles, oxygen and stuff' as she writes in the manual edition).

Both my discs are awful. Lots of surface noise. Clicks and pops. I noticed small particles of black vinyl on the surface of the coloured vinyl. These were actually stuck to the grooves and wiped off leaving marks on the record. Really bad quality pressing.
