“In Memory of the Voices” is based on the main motif of the composer Mark Kopytman in his work ” Voice of Memory” (1981) – a work that was born from listening to the singing of Yemeni Jews when he immigrated to Israel.
The work “In Memory of the Voices” is a tribute to Kopytman and, as in his way, strives for a synthesis between the tradition modal heterophonic Jewish music and the contemporary musical language he has developed, that also uses aleatoricism.
