Laurie Anderson is one of today's premier performance artists. Known primarily for her multimedia presentations, she has cast herself in roles as varied as visual artist, composer, poet, photographer, filmmaker, electronics whiz, vocalist and instrumentalist.

O Superman launched Anderson's recording career in 1980, rising to number two on the British pop charts and subsequently appearing on Big Science, the first of her seven albums on the Warner Brothers label.

Recognised worldwide as a groundbreaking leader in the use of technology in the arts, Anderson collaborated with Interval Research Corporation, a research and development laboratory founded by Paul Allen and David Liddle, exploring new creative tools like the Talking Stick.

She created the introduction sequence for the first segment of the PBS special, Art 21, a series about art in the 21st century. Her awards include the 2001 Tenco Prize for Songwriting in San Remo, Italy and the 2001 Deutsche Schallplatten prize for Life On A String, as well as grants from the Guggenheim Foundation and the National Endowment for the Arts.

In the experimental tune, My Right Eye, Laurie's voice stands as clear as crystal, while the very deep bass will test any audio equipment. Yes, she is using auto-tune for her voice, but if everyone used it with the same respect for the quality of the recording as she does, the world would be a better place.

We've also included this track on the compilation because we find Anderson a very interesting and experimental artist who moves music in new directions and uses it as a piece of art.
