Where: Clarice Smith PAC : Kay Theatre
Event Type(s): Concert

Kronos Quartet and Laurie Anderson join their distinct personalities and musical styles in Scenes From My New Novel, a new work that combines text and music in a radical way.

Composed by Laurie Anderson, Scenes From My New Novel offers a riveting interplay between text and music. Through the use of the custom-built software program, Wordjam, instruments are able to initiate language within the piece. Additionally, the conflict between spoken and written text fractures the stories and creates a polyphonic structure. As Anderson articulates, "These are stories with tempos."
