Laurie Anderson and Kronos Quartet have partnered to produce a superb and exceptionally intelligent 1 hour and 9 minute (30 tracks) recording. It is which is nothing short of excellent. “Landfall” relates the story of Hurricane Sandy found on Anderson’s very personal experience with the storm, the flooding and the great destruction. Anderson is well-known for her performance art has turned to what is narrative music in the sense that it meets the understood criteria, i.e, the music guides the listener, not only with respect to the story, but with respect to feeling or mood as well. this is not simply “background” music. These tracks take us through emotional moments alert, fear, and anxiety working along side with the Kronos Quartet, well-known for excellence in innovation and experimentation working in genres which extend from minimalism to contemporary classical. The Quartet delivers on the complete disorder and confusion attached to the storm. Taken as a whole, Anderson’s narrative, the violins, viola and violincello of the Quartet as well as special effects create sublime texture taking you on a sonic journey not to be missed. For the educated ear, there is much to consider, e.g., not only texture, but counterpoint and dissonance. If you feel compelled to simply “sample” the recording, go to the 9:38 minute “Nothing Left but Their Names”. It is early in the year, but “Landfall” is clearly in the running for HorizonVU Music’s best pick for 2018.
