Bjork: New album fuses music, technology, nature
Question of the Day
REYKJAVIK, ICELAND (AP) - Icelandic star Bjork says her new album fuses the natural world and iPad apps to invent a music genre she calls an "appbox."
"Biophilia" _ and a host of applications representing specific tracks on the album _ are out Monday, and are meant to immerse listeners in a complete audio-visual experience.
Speaking to AP ahead of the launch, Bjork said she sees "the structure and shapes of songs" during the creative process.
That led her to work with a team of iPad app designers and musicians. She describes the app technology as "more like an accessory," and says many fans will listen to the album in a traditional way.
The beauty of Bjork's homeland is an inspiration. The singer says the link between the environment and music is "effortless and natural."
The iPad is made by Apple Inc.
