11:07 Worlds of Music
on Worlds of Music, Trevor Reekie features an interview with American avant-garde artist, composer, musician and film director Laurie Anderson who in 2018 released an album with the Kronos Quartet called Landfall. She also published a book called "All The Things I lost in the Flood" - Both projects share their origin with Hurricane Sandy's arrival to New York City in 2012, when floods breached Anderson's basement studio and destroyed decades' worth of archived work, notebooks and props. A year after Hurricane Sandy, Laurie's husband, Lou Reed passed away. It's just been announced that Laurie Anderson is coming to NZ after accepting an invitation to curate the biennial New Zealand Festival of the Arts being held in Wellington between Friday 21st February & Sunday 15th March 2020
