Laurie Anderson Interviewed About Lou Reed Tribute

Tomorrow night, the halls of The Cathedral of St. John the Divine will vibrate with the sounds of drones humming and sawing. These drones, though, are “not to be confused with the little surveillance camera” types, as the multi-disciplinary performer and musician Laurie Anderson tells Gothamist. Instead, Anderson and a host of other avant-garde luminaries, including avant-garde composer John Zorn, will improvise a performance rooted in experimental, unpredictable drone sounds—all of them playing off of the feedback that Lou Reed’s openly-tuned old guitars emit when placed against amplifiers.
