Laurie Anderson Resources

Laurie Anderson (1947-) is an American composer, musician, filmmaker and sculptor best known for her experimental performance art. Emerging from the New York avant-garde art scene in the late 1960s, Anderson has since toured the globe with her shows, becoming one of the world’s best-known performance artists. She was a pioneer in the field of electronic music, herself inventing a number of musical instruments. Anderson’s preoccupation with technology, the use of language and the electronic treatment of her voice in multimedia works has made her an artist who successfully fuses storytelling, music, visual art and performance into a unified whole. – Justin Cash
