Landfall

Laurie Anderson, Kronos Quartet

Laurie Anderson and Kronos Quartet’s Landfall was inspired by Anderson’s experience of Hurricane Sandy and is the first collaboration between the iconic storyteller/musician and the ground breaking string quartet, who perform together on the recording. Landfall juxtaposes lush electronics and strings with Anderson’s powerful descriptions of loss, from water-logged pianos to disappearing animal species to Dutch karaoke bars.
