    Her thank yous are adorable! And pretty much the only thing she says during a show.

    I'd never seen the Bowl block off sections with the trees before. Pretty good trick to make the place look more full.

    Man, that was a lovely night. Her voice remains a marvel. Her female chorus was really great -- much stronger vocalists than the chorus she toured with during the Vespertine orchestra shows. Although her chorus could produce an astonishingly lush sound I did sometimes miss having strings. So many artists use strings simply as an adornment, but the string arrangements on many of her songs are essential. Still, the spareness truly made me appreciate her skill as a composer. And have to agree with others, was surprised at how well the Biophilia songs worked live.

    Never buy a ticket from DOROTHY HOLMES if you can help it. Hollywood Bowl has had lots of fake ticket problems with that name.
    Bummer, since I found no takers for my extra pair, I wound up giving them to a homeless guy outside. Hopefully he got something from them and used the money for anything but drugs.

    This is something I think BSP (the show's producer) does for these shows. They did that as well when I saw Robyn at the Bowl.

    Great show. Nattura was amazing with big drum beats, the pyro and Bjork + choir dancing crazy and chaotic across the stage. Amazing.

    Man, I can't stop thinking about this show. I went in a bit reluctantly knowing it would be Biophilia heavy and left walking on air and with a new found appreciation for the album.

    Same here. It's so amazing that her voice is even better live and that chorus really brings most of the tracks to life! Hope she continues working on more stuff.

    Rosanna Greenstreet

    The Guardian, Friday 30 August 2013


    Q&A: Bjork
    Björk: 'My guiltiest pleasure? Self-pity.' Photograph: Rex Features


    Björk Guðmundsdóttir, 47, was born in Iceland. She began singing professionally at the age of 11, releasing her first album in 1977. After her band the Sugarcubes broke up in 1992, she moved to London, where she released her solo albums Debut and Post. In 2000 she won Best Actress at Cannes for her role in Lars von Trier's film Dancer In The Dark. Since 2010 she has been working on Biophilia, which encompasses an album, a live show and an educational programme. On 3 September she brings Biophilia to London's Alexandra Palace. She has two children and lives in Iceland.

    When were you happiest?
    Merging with nature or merging with people.

    What is your greatest fear?
    Not merging, running out of energy to merge…

    What is your earliest memory?
    Being driven to kindergarten by my grandfather. Helping the caretakers there hand out slices of rye bread, thinking I was one of them.

    Which living person do you most admire and why?
    I find most children quite inspiring.

    What is the trait you most deplore in yourself?
    I have a puritan/perfectionist streak. But it has saved my ass many times.

    What would your super power be?
    Humour, lightness.

    If you could bring something extinct back to life, what would you choose?
    Female facial hair and tails.

    What is your favourite smell?
    Rhubarb, oxygen in rainforests, inhaling hair closest to skull.

    What is your favourite word?
    Heart.

    What is your favourite book?
    A lot of them! But the only books I've re-read are Anaïs Nin's diaries.

    Cat or dog?
    I have a cat allergy.

    What would be your fancy dress costume of choice?
    Invisibility.

    Is it better to give or to receive?
    It is best if there is a flow between the two.

    What is your guiltiest pleasure?
    Self-pity.

    What do you owe your parents?
    Integrity and not worrying what other people think.

    What does love feel like?
    Warmth. The ultimate nourishment.

    Have you ever said 'I love you' without meaning it?
    No.

    What's the worst job you've done?
    The travel side to my job right now can be inspiring, but also chaotic.

    If you could go back in time, where would you go?
    To the conception of my children.

    When did you last cry, and why?
    Yesterday. Love.

    How do you relax?
    Films. We didn't really have television when I was a kid. Around 30 I discovered films and started systematically catching up. I collect interesting documentaries and films, and watch a few nights a week. It has affected my subconscious: it used to be only music – now there is a mix.

    What is the closest you've ever come to death?
    My grandparents dying three years ago.

    What single thing would improve the quality of your life?
    Songwriting.

    How would you like to be remembered?
    It would be flattering to be thought of as someone who celebrated life.

    What is the most important lesson life has taught you?
    Humility. Let go: all you can do is your best.
    ...

    I'd like to think it will be, since Biophilia was pretty much just as much of an art project/installation as it was an album. Then again, I'm not really expecting a convenient opportunity to see her again. She finally came back to Detroit in 2007 after not playing since I think the Post tour??, so I went to the show knowing that she'd probably never return.

    She has never toured my state as a solo artist. I wish she would, I really do. Sick of traveling to vegas and LA to see her.

    I was at that Detroit show! So good.
    I hope she does more u.s. cities like that tour. I can easily get to Atlanta if necessary.
