Under the Hood: Using Jewish Archival Materials to Create New Music and Arrangements, presented by Cookie Segelstein with live examples by Veretski Pass

In this presentation Cookie Segelstein will explore ways that traditional musicians balance old-school research and learning with digital resources. How does Veretski Pass use Jewish archival collection materials to compose and arrange new music? This presentation shows their creative process, from gathering materials, to the treatment of the smallest melodic fragments, to using whole melodies. Segelstein will show elements, including music sources, tempo and key treatments, and melodic and rhythmic variations, with live examples played by the members of Veretski Pass.

In person at the Jewish Community Library in San Francisco.
