    Listen: Laurie Anderson Talks with Alan Cumming, Chris Sweeney on "Homo Sapiens" Podcast

    Laurie Anderson is the guest on the latest episode of Alan Cumming and Chris Sweeney's podcast, Homo Sapiens. "She's such a legend," says Cumming. He ascribes to her a queer sensibility, which he defines as "an openness to things other than your own experience and a compassion and a generosity and respect for people, and you think everybody should have as good a go as you do." Anderson joined the hosts prior to the COVID-19 pandemic for a wide-ranging conversation on religion, finding perspective, meditation, managing stress, and the state of the world.

    Multidisciplinary abstractivist and auteur Rob Mazurek will release a new album with Exploding Star Orchestra, Dimensional Stardust, via International Anthem / Nonesuch Records on November 20, 2020. The album track "A Wrinkle in Time Sets Concentric Circles Reeling" is available today; the video by Mikel Patrick Avery can be seen here. Mazurek arranged his pieces for eleven musicians and commissioned his long-time lyrics collaborator Damon Locks to draft original texts for the songs. The album recalls an array of Mazurek’s symphonic­ influences, from Béla Bartók to Morton Feldman to Gil Evans to Sun Ra to Pedro Santos to Bill Dixon to The Art Ensemble of Chicago. Opting to focus on tight ensemble orchestration over passages of open improvisation, he distills an orchestra of explosive improvisers into a graceful group exercise in melodic minimalism.
