    Björk closed out her month-long, ten-show Biophilia NYC residency last night at Roseland Ballroom. The residency also included shows at the New York Hall of Science, which collaborated with Björk on a Biophilia education series on the scientific concepts at the core of the album. One such concept is DNA, in the song "Hollow," the video for which has premiered on NPR's All Songs Considered. "It takes an artist like Björk to turn the complex process of DNA replication and transcription into something as simple and beautiful as a pop song," says NPR. "For the video of her song 'Hollow,' Björk has collaborated with biomedical animator Drew Berry to create a partly-scientific representation of the haunting song." Watch it here.

    Björk launched her ten-show Biophilia residency in NYC with a performance Friday night at the New York Hall of Science in Queens. Five more shows at the unique venue are ahead, with four to follow at Roseland in Manhattan. Björk's "dazzling style" was on display on Friday's premiere, says NPR, which proved to be "a lesson in the scientific art of music, and how limitless it can be." Rolling Stone says of her voice: "Unearthly in its range and force, yet absolutely natural and frank in its ardor and hope, it is the vital human tissue connecting everything else." Fuse calls the show "jaw-dropping," explaining "it was evident that one of those special, unforgettable concert moments had just occurred."
