A collection of songs and stories about contemporary culture, The Language of the Future is the latest chapter in Laurie Anderson's ongoing exploration of the American narrative and how we tell it. Anderson's work crosses borders between dreams, reality and the elusive world of information. Known for her multimedia presentations and innovative use of technology, Anderson spins offbeat adventure stories with her characteristic wit and poignancy.
One of the seminal artists of our time, Laurie Anderson's genre-crossing work encompasses performance, film, music, installation, writing, photography, and sculpture.
"Laurie Anderson is a singer-songwriter of crushing poignancy -- a minimalist painter of melancholy moods who addresses universal themes in the vernacular of the commonplace." - Rolling Stone
