Bjork Vulnicura Strings (The Acoustic Version: Strings, Voice and Viola Organista Only) Limited Vinyl 2LP Set

12" Heavyweight 180g black vinyl. 2 x Vinyl with gatefold sleeve.

A String version of Björk's highly-acclaimed eighth studio album 'Vulnicura'.

The original version of 'Vulnicura' layered the boom and crack of electronic beats with an intense vocal melody and incredible string arrangements by Björk which have been performed live with a fifteen chair orchestra. The new version is musically wholly comprised of strings, with new violin solos by Una Sveinbjarnardottir and strings records by a Viola Organista.

Björk used the only 'Viola Organista' in the world to perform some of the arrangements; an instrument which was designed originally by Leonardo Da Vinci but not built until after his lifetime. The instrument uses a friction belt to vibrate individual strings (similar to a Violin), with the strings selected by pressing keys on the keyboard (similar to an organ). The instrument was recorded in Krakow, Poland by its constructor Sł;;;awomir Zubrzycki and here is where the album reached completion.
