Meredith Monk Shares the Inspiration Behind “Cellular Songs”

At Big Ears 2019, Meredith Monk and her Vocal Ensemble will perform her much-lauded new program, Cellular Songs. In this brief clip, she talks about how she was inspired to write the piece while reading about cancer and learning how full of life a single cell could be—much like, as she realized, the musical cell. We’re so excited to host this work by this transformational artist.
