In Studio: Laurie Anderson

Thursday, September 16, 2010

Laurie Anderson is many things – songwriter, violinist, electronic musician, vocalist. But she is first and foremost a storyteller. Her latest work, Delusion, is about memory and identity, told with her typical blend of wit and wisdom. She’ll play live in the studio.

Delusion kicks off the Brooklyn Academy of Music (BAM)'s 2010 Next Wave Festival. It will run on: Sep 21—25 & Sep 28—30; Oct 1 & 2, 2010, 7:30 p.m.; and Sep 26 & Oct 3, 3 p.m. For more information, please visit BAM's web site.

I find it impossible to sit and listen to Laurie without being totally transported. I guess not everyone 'gets her', but those that do are presented with an amazing musical imaginarium. I love immersing myself in her stories!!!! Thanks, Laurie, you're always fascinating!

I remember when Laurie Anderson first came on the scene in the early 80s when performance art in all its forms was the rage. Her Big Science work was ground breaking in that context. Now, some thirty years later, it sounds completely frivolous, self-absorbed and a bit annoying. I am sure she did well based on all her past successes, but it almost feels like she's mocking us. That's it, she's making fun of us! Woof!

Greetings, interesting music as always, is Laurie married to Lou Reed?

You got to be joking. What a waste of talent and money

This is the dumbest thing I have ever heard. (Anderson's work, not Soundcheck!)
