Musical Meditation

« previous episode | next episode »

Sunday, October 19, 2008

“All of us have impermanence in common,” according to Meredith Monk. “Impermanence," the latest work by the composer/singer/director/choreographer/multi-media artist, combines music, movement, video projections, and lighting design (with light almost functioning as another musical instrument), into a haunting evocation of the passage of time. Inspired by her work with hospice patients in London and the death of her long-time partner, Monk has created a musical meditation on the impermanence and ephemeral quality of life. She joins John Schaefer to give us a preview of the work on this New Sounds program.
