Hear the voice of the collective subconscious in Meredith Monk. Before Elizabeth Fraser, Lisa Gerrard and Azam Ali, there was Meredith Monk, singing in her own, abstracted language, creating a sound like folk songs from another planet. A 13-CD set of her music, The Recordings on ECM Records has just been released. We talk with Meredith Monk about ritual, aural ascension, and mysterious voices, on the Echoes Podcast.
