Music to Zoom By

As colder weather returns to the East Coast and the pandemic shows no signs of slowing down, I’m putting together this post to share with you the three pieces (so far) that I composed to be performed live, over Zoom..

Meditation on Kol Nidrei

Doubt, confusion, an inner repentance – these were the themes I tried to work with in creating my “Meditation” on this most solemn prayer, recited on the Jewish day of Atonement, Yom Kippur. In my composition, the traditionally familiar motifs are fragmented, inverted, and fused together in a way that is connected by question marks. Will we be forgiven?
