Description

In honor of the release of Confidence, or The Appearance of Confidence: The Best of The Believer Music Interviews, Strand is partnering with The Believer to bring you a series of music themed conversations. To kick off this series is a conversation between musician Laurie Anderson and writer Amanda Stern. Laurie is a world-renowned performance artist, composer, and musician, well known for her pioneering work in electronic music, as well as for her invention of several experimental musical instruments. Besides her solo work, she's also collaborated with many other artists including Peter Gabriel, William S. Burroughs, and Lou Reed. Joining Laurie for the evening will be Amanda Stern, writer, editor and creator of the acclaimed the "Happy Ending Music and Reading Series," which boasts participation by folks like Moby, A.M. Homes, Amy Hempel, and of course, Laurie. Amanda is the author of the novel The Long Haul and her work appears in places like The New York Times and Filmmaker. Just as Confidence collects the best conversations with musicians from The Believer--from Jack White on upholstery, to M.I.A. on the internet, to Björk on poetry--this new series will bring you the best in open-ended, lively discussions between contemporary musicians and writers. Join us for this special evening as we kick off the series! March 6, 2014
