Björk Unveils Biophilia Project In Manchester

01 Jul 2011

Björk unveiled the Biophilia Live Show last week as part of the Manchester International Festival. She will be in residence at the festival for a three-week run which includes six intimate performances of her new songs at Campfield Market Hall - her first UK dates in over three years. The residency will also introduce companion apps, invented instruments and more and is the first in a series of six-week residencies in eight different cities in a three-year world tour.

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. For the rest of the week the venues will host a series of music-education workshops in collaboration with local schools.

Björk has commissioned a set of unique musical instruments to accompany her on the live tour. The team who created these instruments includes an English inventor, an Icelandic organ builder and a graduate of MIT Media Lab. Among these creations are four 10-foot pendulum-harps, in which the swinging motion plucks the strings and illustrates the songs’ gravitational subject matter. The Biophilia Live Show takes place in specially chosen spaces and museums, rather than traditional music venues. Björk will perform in the round to audiences of less than 2,000 people to create an intimate experience in which all audience members are within 20-feet of the stage.
