Meredith Monk — iconic composer, singer, director/choreographer and filmmaker — creates works that thrive at the intersection of music and movement, image and object, light and sound, in an effort to discover and weave together new modes of perception. A pioneer in what is now called “extended vocal technique” and “interdisciplinary performance,” Monk’s exploration of the voice as an instrument expands the boundaries of musical composition, creating landscapes of sound that unearth feelings, energies and memories for which there are no words. For her newest evening-length work, Monk offers a poetic meditation on the environment. Using her recent, highly acclaimed composition Realm Variations for vocalists and instrumentalists as a point of departure, she employs contrasts in range from high to low to create an expansive sound world. Within this world, Monk evokes the Buddhist notion of joining heaven and earth by way of human beings.
