1971-1979 — New York Times horizontal/China Times vertical(Edit)

Laurie Anderson crée ses premières sculptures entre visuel et concept, dans lesquelles la structure formelle et la relation au monde sont intimement imbriquées, en tressant divers journaux (le New York Times et le Sunday pour Seven Weekends en mars 1972, ou encore le New York Times et le China Times).


1972 — An Afternoon of Automotive Transmission(Edit)

Rochester, Vermont - concert of automobile horns
In the early 1970s, she started creating and presenting her first performance pieces such as
Automotive, a “concert” of car horns in an open space in 1972. There was a symphony for car horns and autoparts entitled An Afternoon of Automotive Transmission.
— —
An Afternoon of Automotive Transmission, which Anderson describes as ‘really horrible’, was her first outdoor spectacle. Performed in Rochester, New York, this happening was envisioned as a summer concert for automobile and truck horns. The whole event has a humorous tone featuring musical compositions such as: ‘The Well-Tempered Beep’, ‘Concerto for Land Rover with Six-Cylinder Backup’, and ‘Auto-Da-Fé’. Even though mostly preoccupied with sound, this performance also inverts common spatial delineation by reversing the traditional relationship between the audience and the performers. Every summer regular musical concerts would be held in the Rochester Park, with musicians playing in the park’s gazebo and the audience seated on the surrounding grass. Also part of the local custom has been that the audience applauds the summer concerts by blowing their car horns. Anderson places the audience in the gazebo and the performers – drivers and their cars – around it. Reversing the positions and performing the concert of car horns, Anderson subverts the conventions of a traditional communal event and turns it into a happening of avant-garde defamiliarisation.(Silvija Jestrovic, From the Ice Cube Stage to Simulated Reality: Place and Displacement in Laurie Anderson’s Performances, [Source]

"Megaphones were used as the sound system in a large empty sports stadium; ten performers shouted stories across the field."
(Laurie Anderson)
