Landfall cover

The full-length studio recording of Landfall was inspired by Laurie’s experience of Hurricane Sandy and juxtaposes lush electronics and strings with Laurie’s powerful descriptions of loss, from water-logged pianos to disappearing animal species to Dutch karaoke bars. David Harrington, Kronos’ founder, artistic director, and violinist, writes, “Laurie Anderson is the master magician musician who has always inhabited those secret places where technology has personality, where ‘real time’ is questioned and where all the elements of performance meet and combine into music. Her process is to gather and continue to gather potentially useful aspects as she sculpts a shape. Her sense of play and fun and her continuous experimenting make her the ideal chemist (or is it alchemist?) in the laboratory of music.”

We have performed Landfall with Laurie about 20 times in the US, UK, EU, and Australia, including at commissioning presenters The Clarice​ at University of Maryland​, Adelaide Festival​, Barbican Centre​, Peak Performances at Montclair State University​, Perth Festival​, Stanford Live​ at Stanford University​, and Texas Performing Arts at The University of Texas at Austin​, among other venues.
