Björk originally envisaged her Biophilia album as a house she'd take over with a room for each song, which would then tour the world. Not surprisingly that proved impractical, but the launch of the iPad allowed her to recreate her vision in app form. What would have been the house is now a “mother” app, which has just been made available for free on iTunes, and which will eventually enclose the rest of the apps – one for each song.
