Laurie Anderson on Delusion

    A pioneering storyteller whose ever-intriguing convergence of technology, violin, visuals, and voice creates spellbinding tales, Laurie Anderson (The End of the Moon, 2005 Spring Season; Songs and Stories from Moby Dick, 1999 Next Wave) opens the Next Wave Festival with Delusion. A phantasmagoric world made up of short mystery plays, her latest work is activated by brooding, deeply affecting music redolent of Tibetan temple horns and Arabic strings, performed by Anderson on electronically enhanced violin with supporting virtuoso musicians. A Homeric epic about longing, identity, and memory, Delusion invokes both humor and terror, conjuring up elves, mysteries, ghost ships, and dead relatives to spin poetic stories and imagery into gold.

From her 2002 Happiness tour, she told amazing stories as she performed music and background noises to her solo performance. With only an occasional change in lighting, it was simple - but sinply phenomenal. a show was free (due to a generous donation) in Denver, and the Chicago show was miraculous.

If you did not get a chance to see this show, you can hear the performance (though it is difficult to hear voices in this recording). Hear the 62 minute long first part or the 46 minute long second part of the performance (both as mp3 files).

note: please don’t kick our ass. We know that these are not Laurie-Anderson-Certified files. Honestly, if you’re someone important and want to sue us for having these rare video files, please, just let us know instead that you don’t like them and we’ll be the nice nice goody-two-shoes types and close this page. We just wanted to let people have choices in seeing cool stuff from Laurie Anderson, is that so wrong? ... Maybe you think it is, just know that we’re good-natured people trying to help people out here and we can do whatever you say... I swear.
