One of Iceland's greatest cultural exports -- Björk -- has the #3 record on Q's Top 20 Albums of 2011 for her innovative Biophilia. The record is not just a record... but also an app album, with accompanying iPad apps for each song with interactive elements to help teach listeners about musicology. But the technology aside, Björk shows her musical might once more, with newly-created instruments, stunning musical dynamism and a voice that never ceases to leave an impression. Jian sat down with Björk in New York city this past summer. Their wide-ranging conversation includes everything from her start in music, to her role as a political and environmental activist, to her ongoing fusion of music, technology and nature.
