Louder Than War recently reviewed BjÃÂ¶rk’s ”ËThe Biophilia’ live show from the Manchester International Festival.
We can now confirm the release of a very limited and frankly rather special version of ”ËThe Biophilia’ album; Released on 26th September 2011 will be ”ËThe Biophilia – Ultimate Edition’, which will be presented in a lacquered and silkscreened oak hinged-lid case.
The set consists of the ”ËBiophilia Manual’ along with 10 chrome-plated tuning forks, each silkscreened on one face in 10 different colours, stamped at the back, and presented in a flocked tray. Get this – each fork is adjusted to the tone of a ”ËBiophilia’ track, covering a complete octave in a non-conventional scale.
Yep, that lost me too, but for the musicians amongst you:
1. A 220 Hz
2. B 233 Hz
3. C 261.6 Hz
4. C# 277.2 Hz
5. D 293 Hz
6. Eb 311.1 Hz
7. E 329.6 Hz
8. F# 370 Hz
9. G 392 Hz
10. A 440 Hz
This rather special edition will be made to order and fabricated only once; each case comes with an individual numbered certificate. Orders must be collected by August 12.
