Björk's Biophilia Live Show @ NY Hall of Science:
February 3, 6, 9 (cancelled), 12, 15 & 18, 2012
Due to health issues, the February 9 Björk show is cancelled.
In partnership with The Creators Project and the New York Hall of Science,
Björk is bringing her live Biophilia show to NYSCI.
The NYSCI shows have been set to Björk’s original Biophilia specifications,
as audio-visual shows in an intimate setting with no audience member more
than a few yards from the stage. All shows are performed in the round.
The Great Hall is NYSCI's original building, which was designed by Harrison
and Abramovitz Architects for the 1964/1965 World's Fair. With undulating blue
Dalle de Verre glass and concrete walls, the building was designed to give the
illusion of being in deep space.
Biophilia premiered this past summer at the Manchester International Festival
(MIF) in England in what The Wall St. Journal called a “magical evening,”
followed by a sold out residency in Björk’s hometown of Reykjavik, Iceland.
Initially commissioned by MIF, the intimate performance finds Björk accompanied
by a set of unique musical instruments created by a team including an Icelandic
organ builder and a graduate of the MIT Media Lab. Among these creations are four
10-foot pendulum-harps, a MIDI-controlled pipe organ celeste re-fitted with bronze
gamelan bars, and twin musical Tesla coils. The performance also features an
award-winning 24-piece Icelandic female choir and visuals from the Biophilia Apps
with app developer Max Weisel performing on stage alongside Björk and musicians
Manu Delagu and Zeena Parkins.
In addition to the live performance, Björk will collaborate with NYSCI on a
three-week-long Biophilia education series. Featuring interactive science and
music workshops for middle-school children, the series leads students on an
intensive study of the scientific concepts at the core of Biophilia’s songs,
including crystalline structures, lunar phases, viruses, and more. Students will
also learn to use the Biophilia Apps as tools for music composition and delve
into the study of how musicology relates to nature.
The Creators Project will be presenting Biophilia, and supporting the development
of the education program for the United States. An ongoing global arts and
technology initiative, the Creators Project supports visionary artists, musicians,
and filmmakers who are using technology to push the bounds of creative expression.
Content around the Biophilia project will be available at thecreatorsproject.com.
