Laurie Anderson "For instants – Part 5"

21–31.05.1977
de Appel, Brouwersgracht 196, Amsterdam
May 21 and 22: performance 'The performances I do also involve language talking rhythms and short stories. The stories focus on spoken word attitudes (for example, the attitude of someone who is listening to you tell a story, you have told the same story to this person before, and this person cannot decide whether to stop you or not. This sense of repetition is incorporated into the audio sections of the performance. I will be using the electronic cross bow for one series of songs. The electronic cross bow can be used on any bowed instrument. A tape head is soldered to the body of an electronic metal violin. Instead of horsehair the bow has a strip of audio tape [words on the tape are in Dutch when the bow is drawn in one direction; when the bow is drawn in the opposite direction, the same sounds become English words].' (Laurie Anderson, invitation De Appel, May 1977.) May 21-31: exhibition of photographs
