Bjork's Biophila like punk
Bjork likens her Biophilia album to the punk movement, because it puts technology and music back in the hands of the user.

Bjork likens her Biophilia album to the punk movement.

The eccentric singer has released her latest album 'Biophilia' as a series of interactive mobile applications, and believes by giving the listener the ability to manipulate the experience of the music she has set them free and broken boundaries, much like punk music did in the 70s.

She told NME magazine: "For 10 years I'd just been listening to people moan on about how the internet was killing music. And I was like, 'Hang on, technology is not the enemy of music.

"Maybe it's because we've let businessmen set up the model of how we distribute music. If artists would get involved... that's why I've been comparing this project to punk. Obviously not literally the songs, but it's kind of like when I was 16.

"When we wanted to put out an album, we put out an album. And made the poster ourselves."

Bjork is doing a number of residencies with 'Biophilia' in cities across the world, and hopes to update the apps and songs between them, as well as enabling her fans to swap versions of the music they have done themselves.

She added: "I think it's important, while the internet is still moving, to make it what you want it to be. Although then my mind was like, 'Uh oh, this is dangerous for a musician,' because I'm gonna be like, 'Can I add a glockenspiel in February?' Don't give me that option or my mind will go berserk."
