Laurie Anderson - icon, composer, writer, director, visual artist and singer - is coming on tour to present a best-of of her work. From old pieces from her debut "Big Science" to the present, she will perform with the jazz band Sexmob. Led by Steven Bernstein (horns), Sexmob also includes: Briggan Krauss (saxophone, guitar), Tony Scherr (bass), Kenny Wollesen (drums) and Doug Wieselman (guitar and woodwinds). Visual performances round out the program of song and storytelling. Laurie Anderson has created groundbreaking works that span the worlds of art, theater, experimental music and technology. Her recording career, which began with "Big Science" in 1981, includes the soundtrack to her feature film "Home of the Brave" and "Life on a String."
Anderson's live shows range from simple spoken word to elaborate multimedia stage performances such as "Songs and Stories for Moby Dick." In 2002, Anderson was named NASA's first artist-in-residence, culminating in her 2004 solo performance of "The End of the Moon.”
