Pitchfork reports that tonight Laurie Anderson will perform in New York City, for dogs. This isn’t the first time she has performed for dogs, this performance follows her “Music For Dogs” performance at Sydney Opera House in 2010.
The performance will take place in Times Square where Anderson’s live performance will be emitted from speakers at a low frequency, palatable to sensitive ears. There will be 350 sets of wireless headphones for the human attendees. The concert will begin at 11:30 p.m.
The performance is part of Times Square’s “Midnight Moment” series, which Anderson has also contributed a three-minute cut of her “Heart of a Dog” documentary. “Heart of a Dog” has been shortlisted for an Academy Award nomination, is about 75 minutes long and tackles a range of themes, according to The New York Times.
Yoko Ono, who is a previous contributor to “Midnight Moment”, approves of the concert. It is an idea “only Laurie can get away with,” she told the Times.
