Icon of contemporary music
Meredith Monk (b. 1942, New York City) is a composer, singer, director/choreographer and creator of new opera, music-theatre works, films and installations. Recognised as one of the most unique and influential artists of our time, she is the pioneer of what is now called ‘extended vocal technique’ and 'interdisciplinary performance'. With her enigmatic, playful and unconventional compositions and performances she has pushed the boundaries of music, visual art and performance. Her works have been presented at major venues throughout the world. Over the last six decades, she has been hailed as ‘a magician of the voice’ and ‘one of America’s coolest composers.'
