Anohni at Park Avenue Armory

ANOHNI (Antony Hegarty) made the live debut of her new album HOPELESSNESS on Wednesday night (5/18) at the Park Avenue Armory in NYC (part of Red Bull Music Academy), and she did it again last night (5/19). Here’s our quick recap from the first night of how the shows went down:

The stage was set up with Oneohtrix Point Never (who co-produced the album with Hudson Mohawke) on one side and Christopher Elms (who’s also worked with Antony collaborator Bjork) on the other, and a large screen with projections in the middle. It began with nearly 20 minutes of ambient noise and projected footage of Naomi Campbell dancing, before eventually going into HOPELESSNESS‘ title track.

The way the album was performed was by having close-ups on various actors’ faces lip-syncing the words as ANOHNI sang them while hooded and veiled on stage. She mostly stayed out of the spotlight and didn’t move around much, and you could tell that at least some of the vocals were pre-recorded. (Her voice did sound great though.) The set included every song on HOPELESSNESS (not in order), and also some unreleased material. It ended with footage of a speech by Ngalangka Nola Taylor.

We’ve got a set of pictures from the second night in this post.
