The inclusion of a giant Tesla coil to generate not only shocking electricity bolts but also a distinct musical crackling, was a particular hit during what Bjork describes as a "low budget" version of her Biophilia show in Manchester, England this summer.
The full version of the show will play at Reykjavik's stunning new Harpa music hall in October and November.
Biophilia's music-meets-nature theme, the reinvented instruments, the iPad app and the music lessons for an wired, environment-loving audience — all of that's in line with Bjork's reputation for eccentricity.
She describes some of the rhythms on Biophilia as "magnetic liquids, almost like planets rolling out of orbit," then giggles "if that makes any sense."
"I'm not your normal troubadour".
