The Lodge Masters Music for Björk's Epic Multimedia Release "Biophillia"

Visionary Icelandic pop icon Björk is set to release her upcoming multimedia project "Biophillia" later this year. The music for the release- including a 10 song album and 10 musical iPad apps themed after each song's scientific subject matter- was mastered at The Lodge this March by Emily Lazar and Joe LaPorta alongside Björk and her long-time engineer Damian Taylor.

Intended to blur the lines between science and music, the "Biophillia" project also consists of a handful of fascinating instruments that Björk and Taylor invented themselves, a new interactive website based on the solar system and constellations, as well as future collaborations with local scientists and educational facilities in each of the 8 cities she plans to tour over the next few years in unique 6-week residencies.
