Whether she’s creating a tape-bow violin that uses recorded magnetic tape on the bow instead of horsehair, or a six-foot-long talking stick controller, Laurie Anderson has been tapping into previously unheard sounds for more than 30 years. She’s no stranger to performance art or filmmaking, either. Her latest piece, Language of the Future, is a collection of songs and stories. Anderson appears Saturday, Oct. 25, at Sonoma State University’s Green Music Center, 1801 E. Cotati Ave., Rohnert Park. 7:30pm. $35. 866.955.6040.
