Last year Bjork put out easily her most ambitious and dynamic project to date, with the release of the Biophilia. The album, who’s title refers to a love of all living things, is a multimedia project that integrates nature, music, and technology, and offers a companion iPad app, that features “games, music, and editorial content-allowing listeners to explore more deeply the concepts and sounds of each of Biophilia‘s 13 songs.” After debuting an elaborate stage show for the project in England, Bjork has announced that she will bring it to North America for the first time for a 10-show New York City residency this February, that will be split between the New York Hall of Science in Queens (2/3, 6, 9, 12, 15 & 18) and the Roseland Ballroom (2/22, 25 & 28).
According to the New York Times, the Icelandic singer-songwriter’s elaborate stage show features a “24-woman choir, giant Tesla coils and several large custom-built instruments that Bjork and her collaborators invented: a portable pipe organ, four 10-foot pendulums that play harp notes as they swing, a gramophone-like contraption called a “Sharpsichord” and another piece called a “gameleste,” which is a fusion of a celesta and a gamelan”. Tickets for these unique performances will go on-sale via Ticketmaster starting on January 13 at 10 AM.
