News & Reviews

  • Laurie Anderson and Kronos Quartet's new album Landfall was reviewed on NPR's Fresh Air with Terry Gross. Fans can hear Kronos "explode their range" on the new album, says reviewer Milo Miles. He also notes "the unprecedented mixture of strings and electronics guided by Anderson's unmistakable voice." The album results "from years of practicing, performing, refining and tweaking the collaborations," Miles concludes. "You can hear how the time and care have paid off." You can listen to the complete review here.

  • Laurie Anderson was the guest on CBC's Q. She spoke with host Tom Power about her experience of Hurricane Sandy when it hit New York City in October 2012 and about finding hope in loss. They also discuss the work it inspired: Landfall, her new album with Kronos Quartet; and her new book, All the Things I Lost in the Flood. You can listen to the conversation below.
