Sound in the Work of LAURIE ANDERSON
Laurie Anderson: The Record of the Time is a 30 year retrospective of Laurie Anderson’s works that opened last week at the NTT InterCommunication Center [ICC], Tokyo. It will run through October 2, 2005.
Laurie Anderson (born 1947) rose to acclaim on the New York art scene of the early 1980s with her distinctive electronic performances, and continues to be a major globally active artist, one the very few truly international stars of performance art today. Utilizing synthesizers, video and computer graphics as well as various electronic devices of her own design, she blends diverse elements – music, moving images, language, action – into eclectic cocktails of experimental ideas and avant garde modes of expression that appeal to a broad popular audience. She is, in a word, the very embodiment of colorful postmodern performance.
