Radiohead’s PolyFauna A Psychedelic Interactive World

Radiohead’s PolyFauna is a psychedelic interactive work, created by Radiohead, Nigel Godrich, Stanley Donwood and Universal Everything.

PolyFauna is a free, exploratory audiovisual app, born out of Radiohead’s The King of Limbs sessions and the sketchbooks of Stanley Donwood.

Set to a lunar calendar, the app is brought to life through touch and offers a unique and different set of experiences and encounters each time it’s used. The app invites the user to explore an immersive, expansive world of primitive life, weather, sunsets, mountains and forests.

Radiohead has released version 2 of PolyFauna, which they say is ‘entirely new’.

    1. The U2 album was left over stuff they had no intention of releasing. I could give away my crappy demos away too, but I wouldn’t force you all to download them, I wouldn’t think “free” was a selling point – free mouldy bread is still mouldy bread.

      1. The U2 album was written, recorded, produced, and sequenced as real album. It is not a demo collection. It will go on sale as well, including physical media.
        I don’t care about U2. I just wanted people to understand that you made that stuff up.

  1. We were doing this stuff in the nineties, and the music was considerably better. I’ve got some fantastic stuff from graphic designers and musicians each with their own projects where the music and ideas were of actual quality and the ideas ground breaking.

    Thom Yorke once said he wouldn’t be one of those old fart bands like the Rolling Stones who didn’t know when to quit when the music stopped being good. Look at you now. Are we really going to have to put up with another forty years of this?

    1. The mentality that compels anonymous people to declare themselves superior to a comment section full of random strangers is truly inspirational. Keep kicking that pedestal and they’ll surely give you your own.
      “The Tomb of the Unknown EM-CGI Innovator – He Was Better Than Radiohead, Then He Rode Off Into The Sunset Before He Got Old.”

  2. Given all the other interactive media and games out there, and how relatively easy and affordable much of it is to produce now, this is some astonishingly crap quality stuff here.

  3. anyone remember when polyphonic spree did an interactive thingy with a web-based puzzle game? makes ya wonder about radiohead’s title choice…
