Laurie Anderson continues her legacy of site-responsive works and dialogues with a string arrangement for violin and electronics. By filtering and processing the sounds of the violin, Anderson makes music from harmonics and overtones that are generally beyond the human range of hearing. A single melodic line will expand to fill the space, transforming the Winter Garden into an enormous violin.
