Meg Anderson Oakland, California

I am a choral singer by training and a dancer by nature.

I absorbed a ton of classical baroque music growing up, plus 4-part-harmony churchy music. I stared composing songs when I was ten or eleven. I took a long detour called school and now I'm back home, doing my soul's work.

Influences: Outkast, Bjork, Plaid, Ratatat, Lauren Hill, Bach, The Knife, Mozart, tUnE-yArDs, Stevie Wonder

Track Name: Rhoda
By Virginia Woolf from The Waves:

Yet there are moments when the walls of the mind grow thin; when nothing is unabsorbed, and I could fancy that we might blow so vast a bubble that the sun might set and rise in it and we might take the blue of midday and the black of midnight and be cast off and escape from here and now.”
Track Name: Jinny
how proudly we sit here
dazzle of youth
all's clear all's firm 
without shadow or illusion
our flesh is firm and cool
our differences are clear cut
as the shadow of rocks in full sunlight
days and days are to come
the fruit is swollen beneath the leaf
winter days summer days
with infinite time before us
what shall we do
watch the coals turn crimson
reach for books shout with laughter?
all is to come
for one moment only before the chain breaks
before disorder returns see us held in a vice
but now the circle breaks the current flows the passions grow
and pound us with their waves jealously envy desire
and now something deeper than they stronger than love
and more subterranean 
net of light loop of time ring of steal white words
islands of light swimming on the grass
with infinite time before us
what shall we do
watch the coals turn crimson
reach for books shout with laughter?
all is to come
i ccould make a dozen stories 
of what he said of what she said
and i can see a dozen pictures
but what are stories toys i twist bubbles i 
blow one ring passing througha nother
and sometimes i doubt that there are stories
what is my story what is rhoda's what is neville's
there is truth there is fact 
that it true that is fact
but beyond is all darkness and conje . . .  cture
Track Name: Anitya Movement 3
I carry this to freedom
and break my site in a thousand shards of light
delude my heart up
to an annihilated height
and cancel day with night
and all my answer effortlessly come streaming
and all the broken of us could cycle into a cir-
cle when
no more to begin and never again end
Track Name: Lullaby
Oh my children
dance like the sunlight
across the black eternity
walking through the forest to our home
ah la la le le lu
