Through genre-defying careers with similar philosophies on the invention of new music, it’s shocking that Laurie Anderson and Kronos Quartet have never collaborated before.
All that will change in an electrifying season finale as artist/composer Laurie Anderson and the visionary Kronos Quartet perform a new evening-length piece in their very first collaboration. Composed by Anderson and arranged by Kronos Quartet, the piece will include written text and a dozen new songs that herald a new synthesis of sonic invention.
