    Laurie Anderson talks with Merrill Garbus (tUnE-yArDs), for the latest episode of The Talkhouse Music Podcast. "By turns funny and poignant, and always insightful," says The Talkhouse, "the conversation between these two creative powerhouses ranges from coping with sudden fame, 'the art police,' the healing power of puppetry, their love/hate relationship with technology, the aesthetics of bubble gum, dehydrated kale bars and… hotel hotdogs." Anderson and Kronos Quartet perform her piece Landfall in Columbus, Ohio, and Austin, Texas, in the days ahead and joins The New Yorker's Alex Ross in conversation for The New Yorker Festival on Sunday.

    Laurie Anderson and Kronos Quartet's David Harrington were guests on WNYC's The Brian Lehrer Show to discuss their first-ever collaboration, Landfall. Anderson and Kronos perform the piece, which was inspired by her experience of Hurricane Sandy, for the Nonesuch Records at BAM series through Saturday, September 27. Landfall, says Lehrer, is "both a timeless meditation on loss and other themes and a very timely one for hurricane season and this week of the climate march and climate summit." You can listen to the interview here. Later this season, Anderson and Kronos Quartet perform Landfall in Columbus, Austin, and Chicago.

    The Brooklyn Academy of Music's wide-ranging series of concerts and events Nonesuch Records at BAM: Celebrating a Label Without Labels, celebrating the 50th anniversary of Nonesuch Records, kicks off Tuesday night with the first of three consecutive nights of concerts from Philip Glass and Steve Reich plus a separate solo set from Brad Mehldau and continues through September 28. The New York Times says the series "reflects the broad curiosity and high standard of a label that has had notable successes ... with no guiding criteria other than instinct and taste." In conjunction with these events, BAMcinématek presents Nonesuch Records on Film, a salute to the label’s rich catalogue of movie soundtracks.
