On January 4 in Times Square in New York City, musician Laurie Anderson held a concert for dogs at a frequency they can hear.
About 50 dogs plus 100 humans, attended the event and listened to Anderson’s music.
When Anderson went on stage at 11:45pm, the human audience jokingly howled at her.
The music she created with her tape-bow may not have been quiteaudible to the humans present, but the dogs could clearly hear the beautiful music being played.
Luckily, Anderson didn’t discriminate between the species, and gave the humans so they could also enjoy the music.
Before the end of the set, Anderson asked the humans to try and make their dogs bark for a bit of audience participation.
“Oh, it was lovely. There was so many types of dogs, I really hadn’t imagined that many would show up. I was really impressed,” Anderson said.
Laurie Anderson has beenperforming since the 1970s. Her first feature-length film, The Heart of a Dog, was released in 2015 and is shortlisted for the best documentary Oscar.
The Heart of a Dog focuses in part on the life and times of her deceased Rat Terrier, Lolabelle.
