FROM LAURIE ANDERSON:
“I realized I’ve also written a lot of things for and about men and I asked the amazing Scott Amendola to join me in an evening of improv. Some of the greatest experts on women are men and of course vice versa so I’m hoping for some lively mash ups.”

ABOUT LAURIE ANDERSON
One of America’s most renowned and daring creative pioneers, Laurie Anderson is best known for her music, multimedia presentations and innovative use of technology. As writer, director, visual artist and vocalist she has created a series of groundbreaking works that span the worlds of art, theater, and experimental music. Introduced to mainstream pop culture through the single “O Superman” from her 1981 debut album Big Science and large-scale theater piece United States, Anderson released a procession of albums including Mister Heartbreak, Strange Angels, Bright Red, Life on a String, and Homeland, among others, and has collaborated with artists including Brian Eno, Lou Reed, Peter Gabriel, Philip Glass, John Zorn, William S. Burroughs, Spalding Gray, Christian McBride, Bobby McFerrin, and the Kronos Quartet. She continues to produce new touring productions combining her music and visual art that range from simple spoken word to elaborate multimedia stage performances, and she directed the 2015 documentary film Heart of a Dog, which received an Independent Spirit Awards nomination.

Drummer/signal-treater Scott Amendola is both a tyrant of heavy rhythm and an electric-haired antenna for outworldly messages.

Personnel

Laurie Anderson vocals, keyboards, & violin
Scott Amendola drums, percussion, & electronics

None of her work appears strained or studied, no razzle-dazzle for razzle-dazzle's sake; all of it serves to show and tell stories that we instantly recognize, though we hadn't seen it quite that way before.
