“something I would never, could never do, in a more traditional concert setting”

Experimental performance artist Laurie Anderson takes us through her personal journey of The Blind (AOP’s co-production with Lincoln Center Festival 2013) in an interview with composer Lera Auerbach in this month’s Harper’s BAZAAR.

“After experiencing The Blind, I felt that my ears had been directly connected to my mind and that I had somehow heard the desperate and impossibly beautiful music of the bardo*.”

     *The bardo is a Buddhist concept about the sound of the interval between death and rebirth expressed in The Tibetan Book of the Dead.
