Storyline

Award-winning musician Björk and legendary broadcaster and naturalist Sir David Attenborough have admired each other's work for years but this is the first time they have discussed their mutual love of music and the natural world on screen. In this remarkable documentary, Björk explores our unique relationship with music and discovers how technology might transform the way we engage with it in the future. At the heart of the film is Biophilia, Björk's cutting-edge music project that explores where nature, music and technology meet. David Attenborough explains how music exists in the natural world and speaks about his own passion for music. Author and professor of neurology and psychiatry Oliver Sacks explains the extraordinary and beneficial effects music has on our brains and explains why performing and engaging with music is something all of us should take more seriously.

Should be called "Biophillia" or something that reflects what the documentary is actually about
16 January 2014 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

It's strange that the meeting of these two people provides the basis for a documentary.

Really, this documentary is about how Bjork is developing her music style to reflect scientific concepts/observations of the natural world, and make music more interactive. She is literally making songs that structurally and lyrically talk about crystal formation, lightening, and gravity. Some of the ideas she discusses are really innovative and engaging. Like the app accompanying the album that is actually being used in schools for educational purposes.

Throughout the interview Bjork seems kind of put off by Attenborough's observations about herself and her music. I found this was a weak point in the documentary; these people seemed not to know how to interact with each other.
