Vespertine had more influence from classical music than Björk's previous techno-oriented albums had, but the arrangers here set themselves the task of using no electronic instruments. To this end, they included such novel instruments as an African pumpkin, glass, and sandwich wrapping paper into the orchestra. The result is a set of unique, subtle orchestral textures that's done full justice by the German label Oehms, whose care with the sound goes a long way toward making the project work
A companion album to 2001's critically acclaimed Vespertine, Vespertine Live was originally released in the 5 disc Live Box set in 2003 and was later released separately on 1 June 2004 by One Little Indian records.
Vespertine was an autobiographical concept album about an episode of intimacy in the singer's life. Yet the team of Jan Dvořák, Peter Häublein, and Roman Vinuesa who adapted Björk's music for the Orchestra of Nationaltheater Mannheim faced serious challenges. Vespertine had more influence from classical music than Björk's previous techno-oriented albums had, but the arrangers here set themselves the task of using no electronic instruments.
Björk’s Vespertine, released in August 2001, may be the first (and last) album written for the Napster age. With her fifth studio release, and coming off the expansive, futuristic Homogenic, Björk set out to make an intimate album of micro-beats and minimalist production. It was the kind of production that would lose none of its force when downloaded from the file-sharing sites flourishing at the time. Björk, Alone in the Dark: I use micro-beats, a lot of whispery vocals, which I think sound amazing when they’re downloaded because of the secrecy of the medium. She would create 80% of the Vespertine instrumentals herself, while the lyrics moved toward exploring greater depths of sex,love, and hibernation.

Both cohesive and inconceivably modern, Homogenic sounded like the future-music of childhood dreams. While undeniably beautiful, Vespertine fails to give electronic music the forward push it received on Björk's preceding albums. Rather than designing sounds never before imagined, the album merely sounds current, relying on the technology of standard studio software and the explorations of the Powerbook elite

Bjork premiered six new songs set to appear on her forthcoming Elektra album, "Vespertine," at an intimate concert last night (May 22) at New York's Riverside Church. Tickets to the event, which found Bjork backed by a 12-person choir, harpist Zeena Parkins, and experimental electronic duo Matmos, sold out within minutes via the artist's official Web site last Friday. The evening began on an appropriately heavenly note, as Bjork walked up and down the aisle while singing the sad, slow "Unravel," from 1997's "Homogenic" album
