Editorial Reviews

Review

A profoundly moving tribute to one of America's greatest living performers, choreographers, and composers. Inner Voice offers a rich and complex portrait of Meredith Monk...Babeth M. VanLoo has created a film of immense beauty and historical value about one of the great creative minds of our age. --Alexandra Munroe, Senior Curator of Asian Art, Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum

Always compelling, often ravishing! --The New York Times

An admiring portrait of an individual whose calm, joyous personality makes her quite wonderful company, both at work and in conversation. --Dennis Harvey, Variety

Product Description

(taken in part from the Festival do Nouveau Cinema catalog notes)

It's almost impossible to pin her down. Singer, dancer, filmmaker, composer, choreographer...Meredith Monk's talents include about as many artistic fields as you can imagine.

Meredith Monk: Inner Voice celebrates a multidisciplinary career that draws from a wellspring of Zen Buddhist beliefs and spans a period of 40 years. Based on a wealth of materials including personal archives, film clips of performances, and interviews with her collaborators, as well as conversations with the artist herself, this illuminating documentary articulates Monk's extraordinarily single-minded drive to live for, and through, artistic expression.

Tracing the path of her unceasing creativity up to and including her most recent piece, Songs of Ascension, the film reveals the mystical nature of artistic creation and the life-affirming energy of an authentic inner voice that in turn gives birth to deeper self-awareness.

Special Features Include Bonus Film: Live performance of Monk s seminal work Dolmen Music.

5.0 out of 5 stars Sooo good!! July 12, 2011

Oh man!
What an extremly gifted woman and genius!
I've been following her music ever since "Dolmen Music" and she greatly inspired me in many ways...
I didn't like all of her albums but nevertheless it was always clear to me that she is a very unique and spiritual person/musician.
Her approach can only be called spirtual and even therapeutic.
She incorporates in her music the most beautiful and almost otherworldly singing,solo and ensemble,drama,acting,chorography,Tai Chi,Yoga and and and...
It is clear this is music not only to be listend to but even more so to be seen on stage and get totaly immersed in it.
It has the potential to take you to higher levels of perception and experiencing of yourself/the world.
But I mean that in a good sense,not in any way cheap new-agey.
Very talented singer and great visionary.
If only there were more people like her.
The film is very good,very personal.
It gives great insights into her creating and performing genius.
Lots of performing and music,better than ever you have heard on CD...
Interspersed with interesting interviews of co-musicians,herself and spiritual teachers.
Good mixture of biographical stuff and performances.
In the special features there is a concert of "Dolmen Music" from the 70's and that alone is worth the buy.
If you have ever been interested in her music or if you are into music therapy,art as a spiritual path to transformation -this is it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Creativity and the Inner Voice March 27, 2013
Verified Purchase
This documentary delves into Ms. Monk's religious faith as it inspires her artistic endeavors. I find creativity a wonderful, fresh and mysterious process of the artist and their work and life. I look forward to watching this film and seeing what resonates with me as an artist and what might inspire me from Ms. Monk's lifeworks. The Dvd arrived in excellent shape. Thank you!
