Bjork's 'Biophilia', First App in MOMA's collection! / by sarvin


Those who know me, are familiar with my passion with Bjork and her art. She has created a difference in Music industry, The Icelandic artists is known for being innovative. Her 2004 album "Medulla" was composed almost entirely from human voices, which were remixed into a myriad of sounds. On "Volta", she used touch-sensative instruments that predate the iPad. In 2011, she released the first ever App album called "Biophilia" which is a multimedia exploration of music, nature and technology comprising a suit of original music and interactive, educational artwokds and musical artifacts. Now "Biophilia" is the FIRST App in MOMA's collection! In a statement on the museum's website, Paola Antonelli - senior curator of the department of architecture and design - mentions "At that time, a year after the iPad had been introduced, designers and developers were excitedly experimenting with apps that took advantage of a screen bigger than the iPhone. With "Biphilia" however, Bjork truly innovated the way people experience music by letting them participate in performing and making the music and visuals rather than just listening passively'" For more information on "Biophilia", feel free to go through below links :-
