Björk gave her first live performance of Vulnicura at Carnegie Hall on Saturday, playing nearly all the songs from her recently released album. Unlike her much-maligned MoMA exhibit, this performance was spare and simply produced.
Björk was accompanied by the 15-piece string ensemble Alarm Will Sound, a drummer, and the producer Arca, who collaborated with her on Vulnicura. Behind their heads a screen displayed the lyrics along with animations of the score by Stephen Malinowski.
You can watch a complete version of “Stonemilker,” which opened the concert, here.
