Meredith Monk: Inner Voice

I’ll be trying my first video post tomorrow.  Today, just a quick note about a film I saw today at a special screening at the Guggenheim Museum.  Inner Voice is Babeth VanLoo’s documentary about composer/vocalist/choreographer/director Meredith Monk.  Monk has long been an inspiration to me.  As an artist she has done her own thing in defiance of traditional discipline categories and cultural fashions over four decades, and it just keeps getting deeper and stronger.  She has managed to do all this while seemingly remaining a kind and humble person.  The film beautifully reveals the integration of Monk’s art, her life, and her spiritual practice.  Information about the film is here, and a link to view the entire film, though in very small format, is here.
