show info: Björk actually kicked things off on Saturday, at 5pm, with her show of two halves : one set of orchestrated reworkings of her 2015 album Vulnicura, and a second set of also-symphonic “hits”. For the first she wore a red puffy dress and matching shoes and headdress, but really the mood was blue, although Vulnicura is an autopsy of her relationship with Matthew Barney, so maybe the colour did make sense. This was non-electronic Björk, singing sweetly these sometimes sour scenes from a marriage, the alternately swelling and stabbing strings and weeping violins conjuring mournfulness and melodrama. It is to her credit that she managed to make Vulnicura – her Blood on the Tracks if not her Berlin or Sister Lovers – a viable commercial attraction, giving shape and order to the emotional tumult, to these snippets of words said in anger (“You betrayed your own heart / corrupted that organ”) and anguished cries about the destruction of a family. She created intimacy in an immense space. After the interval, the mood was lightened somewhat as Björk returned for renditions of Jóga and Bachelorette, for which she wore what looked like an extraterrestrial burka. Of course she did. Guardian
The power of Björk’s Vulnicura performance lies in her ability to emote for our viewing pleasure. It sounds sickening when I phrase it that way, but stay with me here. She joined her full orchestra onstage at Harpa wearing a puffy red dress designed by David Ferreira, red stockings, and red platform shoes. On her face was a mask that looked a lot like a ruff. In that moment, she looked just like the Queen Of Hearts, and then she started to sing and I decided it wasn’t an apt comparison. Björk began with “Stonemilker,” which opens Vulnicura with an admission of distance. “Our jux-ta-po-si-tioning fate,” Björk sang, landing each syllable as if it were its own word. “Find our mutual coordinates.” I’m not really a cryer, and I cried. There is something so overwhelmingly sad about watching Björk sing these songs. She has made sad music in the past, yes, but there’s always been a playfulness to her character that transcends misery. On Vulnicura, though, she’s kind of just letting us know every single dark thought that passed through her head during a life-altering breakup. To see anyone stripped of their joy is terrible. To see Björk deprived of hers is borderline unbearable. Stereogum

Björk Sexist Statement:

dear little miss media
!!!! happy winter solstice !!!
as you know the majority of my career i havent moaned about sexism and just got on w it . but im feeling there is an enormous positive current in the sky , a flow w possible changes
so i wanted to mention one thing
last weekend i djd twice at a festival in texas . it was a magical event with some of my favorite musicians djing : aphex twin , arca , oneoh trixpoint never and matmos ... the list is endless !!
most of us played mostly other peoples music and would slide in instrumentals of what weve been working on recently
i am aware of that it is less of a year since i started djing publicly so this is something people are still getting used to and my fans have been incredibly welcoming to me sharing my musical journey and letting me be me . its been so fun and the nerd in me editing together pieces of others peoples songs for weeks , gets to share the different coordinates i feel between some of the most sublime music i know .
but some media could not get their head around that i was not "performing" and "hiding" behind desks . and my male counterparts not . and i think this is sexism . which at the end of this tumultuous year is something im not going to let slide : because we all deserve maximum changes in this revolutionary energy we are currently in the midst of
its gotta be worth it
anyways
women in music are allowed to be singer songwriters singing about their boyfriends . if they change the subject matter to atoms , galaxies , activism , nerdy math beat editing or anything else than being performers singing about their loved ones they get criticized : journalists feel there is just something missing ... as if our only lingo is emo ...
i made volta and biophilia conscious of the fact that these were not subjects females usually write about . i felt i had earned it . on the activist volta i sang about pregnant suicide bombers and for the independence of faroe islands and greenland . on the pedagogic biophilia i sang about galaxies and atoms but it wasnt until vulnicura where i shared a heartbreak i got full acceptance from the media . men are allowed to go from subject to subject , do sci fi , period pieces , be slapstick and humorous , be music nerds getting lost in sculpting soundscapes but not women . if we dont cut our chest open and bleed about the men and children in our lives we are cheating our audience .
eat your bechtel test heart out
but i know the change is in the air . we are walking inside it . therefore i leave this with you in kindness at the end of this year and i hope that in the next year even though i was brave to share w you a classic female subject matter : the heartbreak , i get to have a costume change and walk out of this role . you froze edith piaf and maria callas in it ( not one documentary i have seen about her doesnt mention onassis but no mention w male musicians the women they loved or broke their hearts )
lets make 2017 the year where we fully make the transformation !!!
!!! the right to variety for all the girls out there !!!
onwards
merry christmas

event info by inky brown:

Björk is my second favorite artist other than Thom Yorke/Radiohead. I worked hard to get this footage and endured physical pain and stress during previous sets holding my spot! Hope you enjoy. This is for the people who couldn't be there, and also for the people who WERE there and couldn't see her! Yeah, she surrounded herself with plants so you could only see her if you were near the center... kept the lights really low... and had a lace mask over her face anyway so there was not much to see other than her big dress. Sorry for the jerkiness at parts, the crowd was kinda rough and pushy at points (see below). I deliberately chose to be off-center when I got to the rail because I didn't want to be right in front of her recording the whole thing. I thought it would be rude (even if she didn't notice me... I had the camera on my arm resting on the rail). She makes a point to have an announcement before her shows that photos and videos are not allowed. There was no announcement for the DJ set though. 

Not to make you feel sorry for me but just to help you guys realize that tapers sometimes go though a lot to get footage! First I sat outside in the freezing cold for 2 hours before gates opened (totally unnecessary as everyone else was queueing to get into the Björk Digital exhibit)... so I was first to the Blue Stage at Day for Night. Where it was about 40 degrees inside all day anyway. Once there I stayed in the same place for 8 hours (i.e. no food, no bathroom). I did want to see Matmos and Liars so that was good. But when Mikki Blanco or whoever took the stage all bets were off. He went into the crowd several times and whenever that happens at a show the rail tends to get messed up, people lose their spots entirely and other people push up and grab on so it becomes 50% more crowded. What was a nice, comfortable, humane experience all day before was now like sardines where you couldn't even move your elbows for the rest of the night. Thanks Mikki. During his whole set I had to brace my arms on the other side of the rail and grab on so as not to be pushed over any further to the side. I also got my boobs elbowed constantly and that hurt a lot! Not to mention my whole body squeezed and slammed against the rail. I haven't had that rough an experience since seeing Major Lazer from the rail, which I vowed to never do again. But my whole point of this is to say that the footage would've been a lot better if it had been less crowded up there like it was before the rap set. Also sorry I didn't get Arca's set, I gave up my spot to stand by the artist's entrance to try to meet James Merry (failed), but I did get to talk to Flying Lotus for a while at least. - inky brown.

The Yuletide-lads, Yule Lads, or Yulemen, (Icelandic: jólasveinarnir or jólasveinar) are figures from Icelandic folklore who in modern times have become the Icelandic version of Santa Claus. Their number has varied over time, but currently there are considered to be thirteen. They put rewards or punishments into shoes placed by children on window sills during the last thirteen nights before Christmas Eve. Every night, one Yuletide lad visits each child, leaving gifts or rotting potatoes, depending on the child’s behaviour throughout the year.

The Yuletide-lads originate from Icelandic folklore. Early on their number and depictions varied greatly depending on location, with each individual Lad ranging from a mere prankster to a homicidal monster who eats children.

In 1932, the poem "Jólasveinarnir" was published as a part of the popular poetry book Jólin Koma ("Christmas Is Coming") by Icelandic poet Jóhannes úr Kötlum. The poem reintroduced Icelandic society to Icelandic Yuletide folklore and established what is now considered the canonical thirteen Yuletide-lads, their personalities and connection to other folkloric characters.

The Yuletide-lads were originally portrayed as being mischievous, or even criminal, pranksters who would steal from, or otherwise harass the population (at the time mostly rural farmers). They all had descriptive names that conveyed their modus operandi.

The Yuletide-lads are traditionally said to be the sons of the mountain-dwelling trolls Grýla and Leppalúði. They would trek from the mountains to scare Icelandic children who misbehaved before Christmas. Additionally, the Yuletide-lads are often depicted with the Yule Cat, a beast that, according to folklore, eats children who do not receive new clothes for Christmas.

Modern depictions:

Yule lads lighting a Christmas tree in Akureyri
In modern times the Yuletide-lads have been depicted as taking on a more benevolent role comparable to Santa Claus and other related figures. They are occasionally depicted as wearing late medieval style Icelandic clothing (only in some books and decorations), but are otherwise generally shown wearing the costume traditionally worn by Santa Claus.

List of Yuletide-lads
The Yuletide-lads are said to "come to town" during the last 13 nights before Christmas. Below are the 'official' thirteen Yuletide-lads in the order they arrive (and depart).

iceladic folklore snow men names in icelandic/english are based on Hallberg Hallmundsson's translation of the icelandic poem.

Stekkjarstaur: (Sheep-Cote Clod) Harasses sheep, but is impaired by his stiff peg-legs.
Giljagaur: (Gully Gawk) Hides in gullies, waiting for an opportunity to sneak into the cowshed and steal milk.
Stúfur Stubby: (Abnormally short) Steals pans to eat the crust left on them.
Þvörusleikir: (Spoon-Licker) Steals Þvörur (a type of a wooden spoon with a long handle – I. þvara) to lick. Is extremely thin due to malnutrition.
Pottaskefill: (Pot-Scraper) Steals leftovers from pots.
Askasleikir: (Bowl-Licker) Hides under beds waiting for someone to put down their "askur" (a type of bowl with a lid used instead of dishes), which he then steals.
Hurðaskellir: (Door-Slammer) Likes to slam doors, especially during the night.
Skyrgámur: (Skyr-Gobbler) A Yule Lad with an affinity for skyr.
Bjúgnakrækir: (Sausage-Swiper) Would hide in the rafters and snatch sausages that were being smoked.
Gluggagægir: (Window-Peeper) A snoop who would look through windows in search of things to steal.
Gáttaþefur: (Doorway-Sniffer) Has an abnormally large nose and an acute sense of smell which he uses to locate laufabrauð.
Ketkrókur: (Meat-Hook) Uses a hook to steal meat.
Kertasníkir: (Candle-Stealer) Follows children in order to steal their candles (which in those days were made of tallow and thus edible)
Jólakötturinn: (Yule-Cat) No New Clothes? Then He Eats Children.
From the earliest days of the Norse settlement in Iceland, Winter was the time of year when wool was spun and new clothes were made and it was traditional for everyone to have new clothes for Christmas.

Icelandic lyrics:

Þið kannizt við jólaköttinn 
- sá köttur var griðarstór 
Fólk vissi'ekki hvaðan hann kom 
eða hvert hann fór 

Hann glennti upp glyrnurnar sinar 
glóandi báðar tvær 
Það var ekki heiglum hent 
að horfa í þær 

Kamparnir beittir sem broddar 
upp úr bakinu kryppna há 
og klærnar à loðinni löpp 
var ljótt að sjá 

Því var það, að konurnar kepptust 
við kamba og vefstól og rokk 
og prjónuðu litfagran lepp 
eða lítin sokk 

Þvi kötturinn mátti' ekki koma 
og krækja í börnin smá 
Þau urðu að fásína flík 
þeim fullorðnu hjá 

Og er kveikt var á jólakvöldið 
og kötturin gægðist inn 
stóðu börnin bísperrt og rjóð 
með böggulinn sinn 

Hann veifaði stélinu sterka 
hann stökk og hann klóraði' og blés 
og var ýmist uppi í dal 
eða úti' um nes 

Hann sveimaði, soltinn og grimmur 
í sárköldum jólasnæ 
og vakti í hjörtunum hroll 
á hverjum bæ 

Ef mjálmað var aumlega úti 
var ólukkan samstundis vís 
Allir vissu' að hann veiddi menn 
en vildi ekki mýs 

Hann lagðist á fátæka fólkið 
sem fékk enga nýja spjör 
fyrir jólin - og baslaði og bjó 
við bágust kjör 

Frá því tók hann ætið í einu 
allan þess jólamat 
og át það svo oftast nær sjálft 
ef hann gat 

Því var það, að konurnar kepptust 
við kamba og vefstól og rokk 
og prjónuðu litfagran lepp 
eða lítin sokk 

Sum höfðe fengið svuntu 
og sum höfðu fengið skó 
eða eitthvað, sem þótti þarft 
en þad var nóg 

Þvi kisa máti' engan eta 
sem einhverja flíkina hlaut 
Hún hvæsti þá heldur ljót 
og hljóp á braut 

Hvort enn er hún til, veit ég ekki 
en aum yrði hennar för 
ef allir eignuðust næst 
einhverja spjör 

Þið hafið nú kannske í huga 
að hjálpa, ef þörf verður á 
máske enn finnist einhver börn 
sem ekkert fá 

Máske, að leitin að þeim sem líða 
af ljósskorti heims um ból 
gefi ykkur góðan dag 
og gleðileg jól - English Lyrics:

You know the christmas cat 
- that cat is very large 
We dont know where he came from 
nor where he has gone 

He opened his eyes widely 
glowing both of them 
it was not for cowards 
to look into them 

His hair sharp as needles 
his back was high and bulgy 
and claws on his hairy paw 
were not a pretty sight 

Therefore the women competed 
to rock and sow and spin 
and knitted colorful clothes 
or one little sock 

For the cat could not come 
and get the little children 
they had to get new clothes 
from the grownups 

When christmas eve was lighted 
and the cat looked inside 
the children stood straight and red-cheeked 
with their presents 

He waved his strong tail 
he jumped, scratched and blew 
and was either in the valley 
or out on the headland 

He walked about, hungry and mean 
in hurtfully cold christmas snow 
and kindled the hearts with fear 
in every town 

If outside one heard a weak "meaow" 
then unluck was sure to happen 
all knew he hunted men 
and didnt want mice 

He followed the poorer people 
who didnt get any new clothing 
near christmas - and tried and lived 
in poorest conditions 

From them he took at the same time 
all their christmas food 
and ate them also themselves 
if he could 

Therefore the women competed 
to rock and sow and spin 
and knitted colorful clothes 
or one little sock 

Some had gotten an apron 
and some had got a new shoe 
or anything that was needful 
but that was enough 

For pussy should not eat no-one 
who got some new piece of clothes 
She hissed with her ugly voice 
and ran away 

If she still exists I dont know 
but for nothing would be his trip 
if everybody would get next christmas 
some new rag 

You may want to keep it in mind 
to help if there is need 
for somewhere there might be children 
who get nothing at all 

Mayhaps that looking for those who suffer 
from lack of plentiful lights 
will give you a happy season 
and merry christmas

jólasveinar song info: - http://www.shinybattery.sugarcube.net/specials/jolasv.htm - Jólasveinar - Icelandic Christmas Carol - Radio Cassette Compilation How The Juice Stole Christmas (1995) Icelandic Lyrics:
Jólasveinar ganga um gólf með gildan staf í hendi móðir þeirra sópar gólf og flengir þá með vendi

Upp á stól stendur mín kanna níu nóttum fyrir jól
þá kem ég til manna

Upp á stól stendur mín kanna níu nóttum fyrir jól
þá kem ég til manna

English translation:
Yule-lads tread the floors
with a thick staff in hand
their mother sweeps the floors and spanks them with twigs

On top of a chair my pitcher stands nine nights before Christmas I head towards mankind.

Along with the 13 Icelandic Yule Lads, there is another important Christmas character who must be mentioned. The Christmas Cat (Jólakötturinn -- Yule Cat). This fearsome feline had an important role to play in centuries past and still lives on in today's Icelandic Christmas traditions.

From the earliest days of the Norse settlement in Iceland, Winter was the time of year when wool was spun and new clothes were made and it was traditional for everyone to have new clothes for Christmas.

In fact, traditionally, any child who did not have at least one new item of clothing for Christmas risked being eaten by the dreaded Christmas Cat.

The Icelandic Christmas Cat is no sweet kitteh-- no no-- a dangerous child noshing monster is the Icelandic Christmas Cat. Its origins are murky, but again, predate Christianity.

Some say it is the house cat of the Yule Lads' parents, the mountain-dwelling trolls, Grýla and Leppalúði and that it lives with them in their cave, although this seems to be a rather recent development. But everyone agrees that this is one mean feline and that any person who dares not to have at least one new item of clothing at Christmas, risks being gobbled up alive by the Christmas Cat.

No wonder that to this day, it is de rigeur to have at least one new piece of clothing for Christmas in Iceland.

Björk - Kastljós + Menningin - Interview (icelandic) (2016) [RÚV] (Edited Audio) - [AAC-M4A]


AAC-M4A download link: - https://www.mediafire.com/?nnwibf5pk10o6q4 - Björk Guðmundsdóttir, Kastljós. + menningin. Með höfuðið inni í stærsta leiksviði heims/With head inside the biggest stage in the world (2016) [AAC-M4A] 

RÚV HQ 480p stream link: > http://www.ruv.is/frett/med-hofudid-inni-i-staersta-leiksvidi-heims <

info: (icelandic) 

Björk Guðmundsdóttir hefur aldrei verið hrædd við að kanna nýjar lendur í list sinni, og hefur nú hafið innreið sína í veröld sýndarveruleikans. Á sýningunni Stafrænn heimur Bjarkar, sem opnuð var í Hörpu fyrr í mánuðinum, gefst gestum kostur á að upplifa tónlistina af síðustu plötu hennar, Vulnicuru, með öllum skilningarvitum. Hún segir spennandi að vinna með miðil sem enn sé í mótun og að þessi tækni opni tónlistarmönnum leið inn á stærsta leiksvið heims.
Rökrétt þróun
Sýning Bjarkar var fyrstu opnuð í Ástralíu síðastliðið sumar en kom við í Tókýó, London og Montreal áður en hún var opnuð í Hörpu í nóvember. Á hverjum viðkomustað bætist eitt verk við sýninguna en myndböndin nýta sér allt litróf sýndarveruleikatækni samtímans. Þótt tæknin sé mörgum framandi lítur Björk á sýndarveruleika sem rökrétt framhald á ferli sínum.

„Já, þetta var í raun og veru náttúruleg þróun frá mínum bæjardyrum séð. Tónlistarmyndbandið er form sem ég hef unnið mikið að frá því að ég var í Sykurmolunum. MTV var í raun og veru sýndarveruleiki 9. áratugarins. Það má ekki gleyma því að öll þessu viðteknu form, eins og að skella myndbandi í sjónvarpið, voru mjög róttæk á sínum tíma. Þetta er svolítið sama tilfinning í sýndarveruleikanum og það er mjög skemmtilega að taka þátt í þessu formi meðan það er enn verið að skilgreina hvað það er.

Ráðrík en líka lýðræðisleg
Björk hefur ávallt lagt mikið upp úr tónlistarmyndböndum sínum. „Þegar ég hætti í hljómsveitum og fór að gera mína eigin tónlist varð ég miklu ráðríkari þar; ræð kannski 80 prósent af mínum plötum og tek svo inn samstarfsfólk. En ég er líka létt lýðræðisleg týpa, finnst gaman í hópvinnu, var tíu ár í hljómsveitum þar sem við unnum í hóp, og það yfirfærðist á þetta sjónræna hjá mér. Þeir leikstjórar, sem ég vinn með, skrifa nafnið sitt undir að lokum en við James Merry, sem ég vinn mikið með núna, skrifum sögurnar með leikstjóranum.“

Vasa-Wagner
Björk segir að sýndarveruleikinn feli í raun í sér draumsýn tónlistarmanna á borð við Richard Wagner um að koma öllum listgreinum fyrir í sama verkinu. „Já þetta er einhver vasa-Wagner. Ég held að margt tónlistarfólk, alveg síðan að Wagner var og hét, hafi verið spennt fyrir því að taka öll skilningarvitin inn og hafa 360° leiksvið. Þú ert bara með hausinn inni í stærsta leiksviði heims þar sem allt getur gerst. Og þetta er svo spennandi - ógeðslega spennandi.“

Björk has never been afraid to explore new territories in the art, and has now made its way in the world of virtual reality. The exhibition Digital World Björk, which opened in Harpa earlier this month, gives guests the opportunity to experience the music of the last album its Vulnicuru, with all the senses. She says exciting to work with a medium that is still in development and that this technology opens the way musicians onto the biggest stage in the world.
logical development
Show Björk was first opened in Australia last summer came to Tokyo, London and Montreal before it opened in Harpa in November. Every crossing is added one work to show the videos make use of the entire spectrum of contemporary virtual reality technology. Although the technology is many exotic looks Björk on virtual reality as a logical step in his career.

"Yes, this was really a natural progression from my standpoint. Music video is a form I have worked much since I was in the Sugarcubes. MTV was actually virtual reality ninth decade. It should not be forgotten that all this current form, like slamming the video to the TV, was very radical at the time. This is a bit the same feeling of virtual reality and it is very pleasant to participate in this form while it is yet to define what it is.

Bossy but also democratic
Björk has always maintained that its music videos. "When I left the bands and began to make my own music, I became much masterful there; handle maybe 80 percent of my plates and so take your colleagues. But I also make democratic type, likes a team, ten years in bands where we worked in a group, it moved over this visual for me. Those directors who I work with, write their name under the end of the James Merry, I work with a lot right now, writing stories with the director. "

Vasa Wagner
Björk said that virtual reality does in fact the dream of musicians such as Richard Wagner to bring all the arts for the same job. "Yes this is any pocket-Wagner. I think many musicians, ever since the Wagner and was named, was excited to take all the senses and have a 360 ° stage. You have only the head inside the biggest stage in the world where anything can happen. And this is so exciting - so bloody exciting. "
