The School of Visual Arts' beautiful new theater, with its state of the art equipment, provides the optimal situation for viewing and hearing this concert film from one of the most innovative performers of our time.
"Bjork delivers a performance as visually spectacular as it is musically innovative. Fifteen years into her solo career, Bjork remains the least compromising and most fantastical pop superstar talent."
- The Guardian
"No other songwriter can sound so naive and so instinctual while building such elaborate structures. And few musicians have managed to sustain her unlikely combination of avant-gardism and pop visibility."
- Jon Pareles, The New York Times
Voltaic: The Volta Tour Live in Paris and Reykjavik is a remarkable, multi-media document of Bjork's visually dazzling Volta tour. Full of on-your-feet moments, the film features highlights recorded in Paris and Reykjavik, with performances of songs from Volta as well as earlier tracks including Hunter, Joga, Army of Me, and Hyperballad.
Bjork's band on the Volta tour included Mark Bell (LFO) on computers and keyboards and Damian Taylor on keyboards and programming. Drums and percussion were played by Chris Corsano (Sonic Youth, etc.); Jonas Sen played piano, harpsichord, and church organ; and Bjork's all female Icelandic 10-piece brass section rounded out the group. A dynamic, grand live experience, the Volta tour has been acclaimed around the world.
