Excerpt from Steppe Music: Meredith Monk

2013, 8:08 min, color, sound

A meditation on tranquility and the slow emotions of natural change, this composition by Meredith Monk has a bell like clarity of revelation. One note becomes a chorus, and the chorus becomes a mood as small elements shift and alter their place in our vision, until they assemble into a panoramic fresco. Fragments that transform into landscapes of simple beauty and grace reflect each step in the progression. - John Sanborn
