Björk needs your help for an important cause.
Visit www.kickstarter.com if you want to help Björk's Biophilia app become accessible for Android and Windows 8 for the first time and support the Biophilia Educational Program!
It's not about funding an album. It's about change on a grand scale.
The campaign is active now and ends on February 27.
Per the listing, which we did not edit at all:
"the biophilia educational program is a new way to teach children about science and music . it has met with success in many cities , sparking interest from kids and educators all over the world , from south america to east asia to africa . the most interest has come from students from low-income households and schools with underfunded art budgets, and the only way to bring the project to those people is to have biophilia reprogrammed for android and windows 8. the biophilia educational project is strictly non-profit and volunteer-based , and that's why we need your help."
A bit of an overview: Biophilia is a multimedia project which includes an album, a series of apps housed in one mother app, a live show and an educational program for children from all backgrounds. It's all about exploring the areas where music, nature and technology meet, showing people how sound can work in nature while at the same time exploring the infinite expanse of the universe, from planetary systems to atomic structure.
