As was to be expected, Björk is everywhere right now. Her new technical-scientific-musical adventures deserve all the attention in the world and she’s doing her best to keep the spotlight in place, revealing information bit by bit about the multi-disciplinary project, “Biophilia”. Those who have been lucky enough to attend one of the first three concerts of her residence in Manchester know what the new tracks sound like. But behind “Biophilia” is not only music; there are the technical inventions developed for the occasion, the scientific concepts and the ideas that served as a theoretical substratum for the creation of Björk’s new music and the new stage plan. Some of those will be uncovered when the new edition of Dazed & Confused, one of the most respected lifestyle magazines in the UK, arrives on newsstands.
Björk is the guest editor of August’s issue of Dazed & Confused, to be published tomorrow on 7th July. Rod Stanley visited the artist in New York and talked long and hard with her, about the new album and the interactive applications that come with it. Furthermore, as the magazine explains, in the issue, Björk “presents many of the scientists, designers, programmers, musicologists and artists that inspired and created the project.” To the right you’ll see the photo by Sam Falls that’s on the cover of the special issue. If you’re a fan of all things Guðmundsdóttir, you have a date with “Biophilia” and Dazed.
