Half Notes: Meredith Monk – Impermanence (2008)

by Mark Saleski

There are a handful of female voices out there that’ll cause me to stop, listen, and be amazed: Bjork, Diamanda Galas, Rickie Lee Jones, The Roches. Those women rule the landscape with oddball cadences, insane textures, and emotional tones ranging from delicate sensuality to raw violence. But then there’s Meredith Monk. Totally fearless with her conceptions and flawless of execution, Monk never fails to deliver what seem like impossible vocal constructions. If you want to hear something totally different, then you owe it to your ears to check her out.
