daily kaddish: horn, text, and chant


This recording has three layers. First I recorded the horn track, and then I started a new track for Mira to record the text. I started chanting the text somewhat absent-mindedly in order to set the input gain for Mira’s track (it needs to be higher for a voice to come out even with the much louder sound of a horn), and it seemed interesting, so I stopped, dug up my PDF of the text, and started again from the beginning, making up a psalm-like chanting style in the tonality of Kogan’s “Kaddish.” Then I cued it up a third time for Mira to do her thing.
