"Even in a career that has constantly tested just how high-concept and avant-garde pop culture can be, Björk’s latest effort to basically invent an artistic medium on Biophilia is her biggest challenge and most out-in-front project to date, being touted as it is as the world’s first “app” album. What’s more, Biophilia wasn’t just created for new technology, but by it, with some of the music made on an iPad. And that’s not to mention how she enlisted a whole army of scientists and music geeks to develop an arsenal of toys, including (but not limited to) a giant musical pendulum designed in a MIT lab called a Gravity Harp, a Tesla Coil used as a bass, and the gameleste, a hybrid of two other obscure instruments." -- Arnold Pan
