Bjork’s Biophilia

I’ve spent the past week fascinated with the buzz surrounding the forthcoming album from Bjork, Biophilia. One very unique thing about this new album is the theme of science, nature, technology, and music that surround each song.

Please pay attention to the notes.

The brain is an amazing organ. It gives us conscious control over our actions and is the seat of our thoughts and experiences. There are millions of things in our environment that enter our world everyday, but only a few of them get past the steely discrimination of our perception.
