Biographical / Historical

Laura Phillips "Laurie" Anderson (born June 5, 1947) is an American experimental performance artist, composer and musician who plays violin and keyboards and sings in a variety of experimental music and art rock styles. Initially trained as a sculptor, 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. 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 sounds. Anderson married singer-songwriter and guitarist Lou Reed in 2008. One of the central themes in Anderson's work is exploring the effects of technology on human relationships and communication. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Laurie_Anderson

The book contains an forward and three essays.

Scope and Contents Shelley traces the poetic, musical, theatrical, and artistic history of "downtown NYC" over the 20th Century. On the recto of this print, several artists and poets provide short narratives on what it was like to live "downtown in NYC during the 1970's and early 1980's. On Shelley's WEB site, he comments: Downtown Body is a portrait of New York's avant garde cultural landscape. I choose to use the word portrait because I think it conveys a kind of subjective selectivity that my work brings to any subject I work with. I entered into this project with a raucous enthusiasm, but I am exiting the room on tip toes. Downtown-ness touches on the lives of nearly everyone I know and care about. Everyone's sense of who they are is wrapped up in what Downtown means. And what should Downtown mean? Downtown is the success story of New York's art world, both critical and commercial. It's valuable, so it's hyped. It's Downtown Story: the Movie. It's a nostalgic myth, but it is a self-fulfilling...
