Hugely influential electronic music producer and performer Laurie Anderson, presents her new show Dirtday!
Anderson's pioneering and perennial methods in electronic music production are still applied by contemporary producers, and she has invented a number of instruments and devices to use in her music.
Dirtday! sees Anderson present her views on politics, theories of evolution, families, history, and even animals. Set against a detailed and lush sonic landscape, the powerful and soulful collection of songs and stories create a unique picture, a hallucinatory world made of dreams and reality.
The third and last in her series of solo story works, which includes Happiness and The End of the Moon, Dirtday! is the culmination of Anderson's ground breaking work in this genre.
