I'm listening to the CD Volcano Songs these days and was intrigued by the minimalist and haunting quality of the music. Then I found out more about the musician Meredith Monk: a composer, performer, director, vocalist, film-maker, and choreographer. I always admire people who have multi-talents and blur the boundaries between different art forms. In her own words: I work in between the cracks, where the voice starts dancing, where the body starts singing, where theater becomes cinema. Many of her vocal works are very innovative: pure voices rather than lyrics or instrument construct a complex and emotional music peice.
