New Choral and Vocal Works

For this New Sounds, we’ll hear from both Meredith Monk and David Hykes, two pioneers in what is now called “extended vocal technique.”  Composer, vocalist, choreographer, and innovator Meredith Monk has lately been expanding into the worlds of orchestra and string quartet.  And on her release, "Songs of Ascension" she achieves a new balance with her pairing of voice and instruments together with a combination of East and West in the shruti box (a drone instrument from India) together with string quartet.

For this New Sounds, we’ll hear from both Meredith Monk and David Hykes, two pioneers in what is now called “extended vocal technique.”  Composer, vocalist, choreographer, and innovator Meredith Monk has lately been expanding into the worlds of orchestra and string quartet.  And on her brand-new release, "Songs of Ascension" she achieves a new balance with her pairing of voice and instruments together with a combination of East and West in the shruti box (a drone instrument from India) together with string quartet.
