Björk releases new Solstice app

Following on from her Biophilia app being named as one of the year's best by Apple, Björk has released a new version of the 'Solstice' app.

This allows the user to create a song, using new sound samples and visuals, and gift it to friends as a Christmas e-card. Sjón, Björk's long-term collaborator and friend, originally composed the Christmas poem that inspired the app at the request of an Icelandic newspaper; the poem compares the solar system to a Christmas tree, and at the centre of the app is a sun from which the user pulls rays of light to form a circular harp of strings plucked by orbiting planets, tilting the device changes the image.
