Nature met technology in Bjork's performance Friday night at FYF Fest, which had the Icelandic singer flexing her remarkable voice — a one-of-a-kind marvel no algorithm could devise — against a backing of live strings and clattering machine beats.
Wearing a lime-green face mask and a dress that made her look like a living party streamer, Bjork sang material from throughout her expansive catalog — including hits like "Joga" and "Bachelorette" as well as material from her 2015 album "Vulnicura" — while behind her, a giant video screen showed images of birds dancing and a moth laying eggs.
Occasionally, Arca, the Venezuelan producer with whom Bjork made "Vulnicura," would unload a fusillade of harsh digital noise. But then the singer would reach for a high note and remind you of the flesh and blood onstage and in her songs.
