Meredith Monk has singlehandedly pioneered an entire genre of musical expression * Beginning with the vocal techniques she discovered in the mid-1960s, Monk's work soon came to incorporate theatrical elements, movement, and a poetic sensibility that is at once contemporary and utterly timeless * Has created more than 100 works in genres ranging from vocal solo and ensemble concerts to opera, film, recordings, and site-specific pieces * Since 1980 her music has been released on the ECM New Series label * Received a MacArthur Foundation "Genius" Award in 1995 * Was honored with a three-concert retrospective by Lincoln Center Festival 2000 * Named Musical America's 2012 Composer of the Year

Works by Meredith Monk include:
Weave (2010) for chorus and orchestra
Panda Chant II (1984) for chorus a cappella
Stringsongs (2005) for string quartet
Three Heavens and Hells (1992) for four voices
"Cuando llegue el momento, quizás en unos cien años a partir de ahora, cuando se recuenten los logros en las artes escénicas durante el último tercio del siglo XX, un nombre que seguramente predominará es el de Meredith Monk. En originalidad, alcance y profundidad, hay pocos rivales para ella". — The Washington Post
