Laurie Anderson

Laurie Anderson plays material old and new from her debut album Big Science, to her latest recordings with the New York City band SexMob.

Composer, writer, director, visual artist and vocalist, Laurie Anderson, has created ground-breaking works that span the worlds of art, theatre, experimental music, and technology. Her recording career, launched by Big Science in 1981 includes the soundtrack to her feature film Home of the Brave and Life on a String.

Anderson's live shows range from simple spoken word to elaborate multi-media stage performances such as Songs and Stories for Moby Dick. In 2002, Anderson was appointed the first artist-in-residence of NASA, culminating in her 2004 touring solo performance The End of the Moon. In 2010, a retrospective of her visual and installation work opened in Sao Paulo, Brazil.

For this special show, Laurie performs with Steven Bernstein, Briggan Krauss, Tony Scherr, Kenny Wollesen and Doug Wieselman.
