Over six exhilarating evenings, Björk brought her multimedia Biophilia project to vibrant life within the Victorian space of Campfield Market Hall. These immersive shows featured the haunting sounds of a 24-strong Icelandic choir, Heath Robinson-style invented instruments, introductions by David Attenborough, captivating footage of the natural world and the electrifying experience of a working Tesla coil on bass. This was an event that truly united science, music, nature – and magic.

‘A torrent of fire and ice, an explosively powerful geyser, Björk remains Iceland’s flesh-and-blood rival to the Eyjafjallajökull volcano’ The Times
