Vocal Suite-with-movement by Meredith Monk
entitled Songs From The Hill (1975-76) M. Monk gav
denna sång till Janis.
* Meredith Monk composed SONGS FROM THE
HILL in the summers of l975-76 in Placitas, New
Mexico. The songs were inspired by the timeless hills of
the American Southwest and, by extension, any
desert landscape. Each section explores a distinctive vocal
quality or character in terms of pitch, texture, volume, speed,
timbre, breath, resonance. It is the first solo composition that
Ms. Monk gave to another singer.
