Language Of The Future
A collection of songs and stories about contemporary culture, The Language of the Future, is the latest chapter in Laurie Anderson’s ongoing exploration of the American narrative and how we tell it. Anderson’s work crosses borders between dreams, reality and the elusive world of information. Known for her multimedia presentations and innovative use of technology, Anderson spins offbeat adventure stories with her characteristic wit and poignancy. This work can be presented in a variety of configurations — as a solo evening or with a larger music ensemble — and may incorporate live Skype performances with virtual guests and other elements.
Laurie Anderson is a singer-songwriter of crushing poignancy — a minimalist painter of melancholy moods who addresses universal themes in the vernacular of the commonplace.
