Well, now that my insipid joke about Biophilia being an illness instead of a whacky Björk album from 2011 that was kinda alright and that spawned a bunch of apps and talk-about-apps and mishaps-with-apps and, possibly, underground hip-hop rapping about “app mishaps”, let’s just move on to the main event, shall we?
See, Björk isn’t sick at all. On the contrary, she is touring like a madwoman this summer. And in addition to a couple of new festival dates that she’s adding all around the dang world, she just announced (or at least, her press-handlers did) that she’ll be adding some dates on the West Coast of the US in May and June “where the venues have been set to her original Biophilia specifications as audio-visual shows in an intimate, in-the-round setting.” Neat, huh? She also announced that she’ll be trotting out her “Biophilia Education Program, a series of interactive workshops designed teach students about the relationships between music, science and technology” at those San Francisco and L.A. shows. So, here’s your chance to get your lazy kids off of their Xbox Kinects and… into some dark buildings filled with iPads, I guess.
