Laurie Anderson

Transitory life. Strange Angels. Kokoku. Excelent birds. Zero and one.
Gravity's angel. Langue d'amour. Like pictures. Into your dreams.
World without end. Freefall. The Puppet Motel. Night in Baghdad.
This House of Blues. Bodies in motion. Language is a virus. Superman.
Lost art of conversation. Hang on to your emotions. I'll be your mirror.
Big Science.  Born, never asked. It Tango. Thinking of you. In our sleep.
You are dust. My right eye. Another day in America. From the air.
It's not the bullet that kills you (it's the hole). Walking and falling.
Sweaters. Let X=X. Dark angel. Say Hello. I dreamed i had taked a test.
Three songs for paper. The day the devil. Poison. Broken. Slip Away.
Strange perfumes. Progress. Love among the sailors. Blue Lagoon.

Laura Phillips, "Laurie" Anderson (born 5 June 1947[1]) is an American experimental performance artistcomposer and musician who plays violin and keyboards and sings in a variety of experimental music and art rock styles. Initially trained as a sculptor,[2] Anderson did her first performance-art piece in the late 1960s. Throughout the 1970s, Anderson did a variety of different performance-art activities. She became widely known outside the art world in 1981 when her single "O Superman" reached number two on the UK pop charts. She also starred in and directed the 1986 concert film Home of the Brave.[3]
Anderson is a pioneer in electronic music and has invented several devices that she has used in her recordings and performance art shows. In 1977, she created a tape-bow violin that uses recorded magnetic tape on the bow instead of horsehair and a magnetic tape head in the bridge. In the late 1990s, she developed a talking stick, a six-foot-long baton-like MIDI controller that can access and replicate different sounds.[4]
Laurie Anderson married singer/songwriter and guitarist Lou Reed in 2008.[5]
