Mira spent several hours in the ER yesterday evening. I hadn’t intended to play a Kaddish about that, but while I was warming up, I found myself playing wild improv in a style a friend calls “squeak and squawk music.” I think I was channeling the experience Mira described of feeling her heart pound out of her chest. I decided to try making a Kaddish that told the story she told us, and this was the result.
kaddish in two-part harmonyA conversation between an anthropologist and a musician along with a growing virtual minyan, on themes of death and dying, grief, ritual, and the interplay between music and words.
