Violinist Laurie Anderson and her string ensemble – bassist Greg Cohen, violist Eyvind Kang, cellist Rubin Kodheli and percussionist Shahzad Ismaily – present a concert featuring the songs and texts of Laurie and her late husband and collaborator Lou Reed.
Joining the international ensemble is taonga pūoro composer and musician Horomona Horo.
Backed by the drones – the majestic and strangely harmonic guitar feedback soundscape performed by Stewart Hurwood – let the music wash over you. Both Laurie and Lou wrote many songs about the ocean and these are interpreted, arranged and merged by the musicians into an entirely new symphonic work.
Experience Stewart Hurwood’s guitar feedback installation Lou Reed Drones up-close at the Lower Hutt Events Centre.
By Laurie Anderson, Greg Cohen, Eyvind Kang, Rubin Kodheli, Horomona Horo and Shahzad Ismaily.
Proudly part of the 2020 New Zealand Festival of the Arts.
