The career of composer, vocalist, and filmmaker Meredith Monk has been understandably diverse, resulting in a dozen albums -- most for ECM New Series -- plus several documentaries and numerous awards for both careers. Born in 1942, she attended Sarah Lawrence College and began composing while there. In 1968, Monk formed The House, a record company-of-sorts for interdisciplinary works relating both to music, dance, and film. She signed to the ECM label in the late '70s and has recorded avant-garde works encompassing jazz, classical, and theater music consistently since. ~ John BushPortions of Content Provided by Rovi Corporation.
