I’m listening to the soundtrack from Laurie Anderson’s film Heart of a Dog.
Heart of a Dog is Laurie Anderson’s memoir in the form of a fantastical documentary film. The dog in question is the late Lolabelle, a rat terrier adopted by Ms. Anderson and her late husband, Lou Reed, who died in 2013. As did Lolabelle. The artist dedicated the film to Reed’s memory.
The soundtrack features audio, music, and spoken word pieces from the film. It’s a magical piece of art! One could maybe call it a kind of orchestrated tales … about life and death and love,
and about Lolabelle.
Oh Lolabelle – what would life be without dogs?!
