Last November, I blogged about local beatboxer Shodekeh contributing a track to what appeared to be a promising Meredith Monk remix project, Monk Mix. It boasted contributions from the likes of Bjork, Bang on a Can, Caetano Veloso, DJ Spooky, and Vijay Iyer, all remixing and reinterpreting material from the iconic vocalist. At the time, Shodekeh described the project as "phat, crazy" and said he was working on a version of Monk's classic "Dolmen Music." Well, you can now hear that track, which has been posted on Monk's website along with a handful of other songs. It certainly lives up to Shodekeh's description. And if you're in New York on February 19th, check out the CD release party at Joe's Pub. Monk, Shodekeh, DJ Spooky, and others will perform. I see another Baltimore native, saxophonist Ellery Eskelin—who's featured in our February story on Towson University—will play with John Hollenbeck's group.
