a really amazing album project by the undefinable björk! every song is going to have it's own app on the ipad, something that reflects the song's meaning/content. not just simply an accompanying visual, the app will allow the user to alter the song's structure, chords and overall affect the song's mix, through their actions on the ipad! last week she announced her physical editions for the piece as well (for those who enjoy technology as much as the rest of 'em...but still want ourselves some deluxeness!) come forward 'the ultimate edition'...
"presented in a lacquered and silkscreened oak-hinged lid case"
"the 'biophilia manual' is removed from the case by means of a ribbon pull (and is housed) along with 10 chrome-plated tuning forks, silkscreened on one face in 10 different colours, stamped at the back, and presented in a flocked tray. each case comes with an individually numbered certificate."

....BUTTT! for a more economical option, 'jörky is also releasing 'biophilia (the manual)':
"a 48-page, full-color, hardbound, cloth-covered, and thread-sewn book, tipped on lenticular panel to the front cover, with foil-blocked spine and back cover; the music, on CD, is housed in black uncoated board wallets"...so i still feel i'm getting some sort of luxury experience (maybe not an "ultimate" experience..but an experience all the same!)
both editions are released august 12th and will only be produced once.
