Hello, folks! How are you?
I'm Bruno and today on "Un-Björk-xing"
I gonna talk about the last Björk Live release,
To end up the Björk Live releases:
Which is Voltaïc
On Special Vinyl Edition
And the Special Edition on CD
But I got the Malaysian edition
There's a very cool history behind this edition
And I hope you enjoy it!
Voltaïc was released on June, 2009.
And contains two live concerts
One from Volta Tour, recorded in Paris
And another one, recorded in Reykjavik
With a choir and a brass quartet
For your information, brass are wind instruments,
A category of musical instruments
The second concert, mix songs from Volta and Medúlla
As Björk never toured with Medúlla
She took few Medúlla songs and added
To release at this concert in Reykjavik
Besides, this boxset contains a live session,
At Olympic Studios
A remix CD
And a DVD containing the "Volta videos"
And the Top Ten Runners Up from the "Innocence" video competition
To release the "Innocence" video, Björk made a competition on her website
Where the contestants sent videos
And ran up to make the Innocence official video.
Besides the vinyl edition,
That I am unboxing now for you,
Voltaïc was released on CD only,
with the live Olympic Studios recording,
Another version with the CD and DVD with concerts,
And the 2 CD and 2 DVD version
The Volta Tour, as well as Biophilia Live,
Was screened in movie theaters
But only in 15 cinemas in USA, during the month of release
And in 1 cinema, in Reykjavik
Voltaic means, in portuguese "Voltaico"
And it's related to phenomena
that involves electricity and electric currents
Specially, when they are generated by chemical reactions
And I think this name fits the album
It's very colourful , very energetic
It's a very excited tour
Björk gigged in a lot of countries with "Volta Tour", including Brasil
Where I had the opportunity to watch her concert live, on "Tim festival"
It was very thrilling and unforgettable
The DVD recording had some problems, too.
Björk was ill, during the night of the Paris concert
Her voice was edited in post-production studio.
Now I gonna show you the CD and DVD Malaysian version
This version is special for what reason?
When Björk released "Voltaïc"
She decided to cut few songs off
Due to manufacturing box error,
20.000 have been destroyed and then,
Björk decided to cut four songs from the album.
But, few copies already were shipped for sale in stores
Then, some people got this copy that has been destroyed
Which is this one I have.
I bought it in an auction
And I think it's the most important item I own, because of this.
It has became a collector's item
Nowadays, it's very hard to find this for sale
And if you do, it's very expensive.
This was another "UnBjörk-xing"
I hope you have enjoyed it
