Album Remarks & Appraisals:
For five decades, vocalist-composer Meredith Monk has explored non-verbal vocal sound that lay beneath and beyond language. This exploration has led her to create an art that "sings, dances and meditates on timeless forces." Voices and instruments have equal weight: sometimes each is heard alone; sometimes they are blended to form a new, mysterious sound; sometimes they are combined to create intricate, layered, yet transparent sonic landscapes.
