Laurie Anderson - Home studio (late '80s)

She talks in time.

At the end, performing with a technology that did not then exist.

"Kokoku" from Home Of The Brave: A Film By Laurie Anderson (1986).

Watching this, thinking about my own gigs, I realize it's true: Keep doing what you are doing and sooner or later it won't be cool anymore. But keep doing it and twenty years later nobody recognizes your dance moves and they take you for an original. Give it another five years and it comes back in style. They will call you a genius.

This, at least, is the plan.
