“Anthem” with Meredith Monk

Alarm Will Sound’s Video Chat Variations series opened on SaturdayAugust 1 with the first performance of Anthem by the legendary artist Meredith Monk. Anthem is inspired by the Buddhist concepts of interdependence and cause and effect. Using what is inherent in the video-chat medium, Monk offers a spacious and expansive composition that encourages us to move forward with an awareness of these relationships, accepting that delay and different senses of time are part of our current reality. Alarm Will Sound has a long history with Meredith Monk, dating back to their 2005 Carnegie Hall performance of Monk’s work, Night. This Video Chat Variation is also part of the Mizzou International Composers Festival.
