Meredith Monk Time

This is seriously my favorite thing in the world right now. This is a part — well, two parts, I think — of a long piece of Monk’s called Dolmen Music, available on an album of the same name. A dolmen is a kind of neolithic tomb, so put this on your MP3 player the next time you visit one.

DJ Shadow sampled the cello from the album version of this piece for his song Midnight in a Perfect World. I don’t blame him. It’s a nice cello riff. But who’s going to have the guts to sample the nying nying nying nying no no no nying nying nying nying no no no bits?

Monk has a website and a Facebook page. Go “like” her on Facebook!
