Profile
Laura Phillips "Laurie" Anderson (born June 5, 1947 Glen Ellyn, Illinois) is an American avant-garde artist, composer, musician, and film director whose work spans performance art, pop music, and multimedia projects. In 1972, she obtained an MFA in sculpture from Columbia University, by which time she was already developing and performing works in a variety of media. During the 70s she worked in New York, experimenting in electronics and tape manipulation, often in conjunction with performance. She came to worldwide attention in 1981 with her song "O Superman," which unexpectedly hit the charts in England. She subsequently began a recording career that has spanned decades, though the visual and other aspects of her art have never been abandoned.
