Double vinyl LP pressing. 2018 release. Laurie Anderson and Kronos Quartet's Landfall is inspired by Anderson's experience of Hurricane Sandy. This album marks the first collaboration between the iconic storyteller/musician and the groundbreaking string quartet, who perform together on the recording. Landfall combines lush electronics and traditional strings by Kronos with Anderson's poignant descriptions of loss, ranging from water-logged pianos to disappearing animal species to Dutch karaoke bars. Described by The Washington Post as "riveting" and "gorgeous," this album showcases the unique blend of talents from both artists. Laurie Anderson is recognized as one of America's most renowned and daring creative pioneers. Her multidisciplinary work, spanning music, visual art, poetry, film, and photography, has captivated audiences worldwide for over thirty years. On the other hand, San Francisco's Kronos Quartet has spent more than 40 years fearlessly exploring new musical territories and reimagining the string quartet experience. With over 60 recordings, thousands of concerts, and collaborations with diverse composers and performers, Kronos Quartet has solidified its position as one of the most celebrated and influential ensembles globally.
