CONFERENCE CENTER—GOLDEN GATE ROOM
Summary: In October of 2011 Björk released Biophilia, the world’s first “app album,” in collaboration with a vast, multi-disciplinary team of designers and developers that included Scott Snibbe and Max Weisel. Conceived as a suite of 10 song-specific apps, each app links music composition and scientific concepts in a set of hands-on, immersive audiovisual experiences. The developers behind the project will talk about their work and lead a hands-on exploration of the Biophilia apps.
