Description

    Laurie Anderson and Kronos Quartet's 'Landfall' was inspired by Anderson's experience of Hurricane Sandy and is the first collaboration between the iconic storyteller/musician and the ground breaking string quartet, who perform together on the recording. 'Landfall' juxtaposes lush electronics and strings with Anderson's powerful descriptions of loss, from water-logged pianos to disappearing animal species to Dutch karaoke bars.

    Laurie Anderson is one of America's most renowned—and daring—creative pioneers. Her work, which encompasses music, visual art, poetry, film, and photography, has challenged and delighted audiences around the world for more than thirty years.

    Laurie Anderson has numerous major works to her credit, along with countless collaborations with an array of artists, from Jonathan Demme and Brian Eno to Bill T. Jones and Peter Gabriel.

    The Kronos Quartet has become one of the world's most celebrated and influential ensembles, releasing more than 60 recordings, collaborating with an eclectic mix of composers and performers, and commissioning over 900 works and arrangements for string quartet. They have won over 40 awards, including a Grammy Award and the prestigious Polar Music and Avery Fisher Prizes.
