Laurie Anderson Media Manipulator

Frank Broughton, i-D, August 1994

SHE’S A MULTI-MEDIA story-teller, spinning yarns around the flickering campfire of technology. Her songs are swathes of hypnotic synthesised tones, with eerie voice filters focussing the half-sung words of her thoughts and dreams. She’s a poet who makes records; a musical ideas-juggler; a stand-up philosopher.
