Anander Mol, Anander Veig

Another Time, Another Way: Tablet Magazine’s Hanukkah album, remixed versions of holiday and Jewish classics

Anander Mol, Anander Veig

They are a people, albeit a diverse and dispersed one, spread throughout the world, separated by geography and language, yet still connected through a rich and shared cultural lineage.

I’m speaking, of course, about remixers.

Remixers are electronic musicians who take a pre-existing piece of recorded music and turn it into something else, sometimes something else entirely. They delight in finding choice moments in the original and rearranging what was there until it resembles the source material yet feels wholly new, wholly its own.

As Hanukkah approached this year, I sent a note to various remixers, asking if they’d be interested in selecting a holiday staple, or a song from another festive Jewish event, and taking a stab at remixing it. The response was swift, strong, and positive—as was the supportive response from the musicians and bands who had recorded the originals from which the remixers would subsequently work. Permission having been granted by the originating musicians (or their respective record labels), the remixers dove in deep, enacting their alterations with everything from laptops to modular synthesizers.

To remix is to act with various intentions: to pay homage, to tweak, to update, to comment, to gloss, to cross-reference, to entertain, to reflect. One thing, however, that none of the remixes on this compilation intends to do is to correct; all the original tracks from which these remixes were constructed are excellent in their own right—there is no kitsch, no camp, no music-by-the-yard, no cloyingly infant-oriented forced cheer, no tongues in any cheeks, no winking among them.

And so, while some of these remixes are quite radical—just try to detect the sonorities of the klezmer original in ocp’s version of the Alexandria Kleztet’s holiday favorite, “Chanukah Chag Yafe”—everything done here was committed out of affection for the music.

The album’s content ranges widely, from the kid-friendly (the “Chag Yafe”) to lush ambient-pop renditions of “Maoz Tzur” and “Sivivon Sov Sov Sov” to hip-hop-derived takes on three klezmer favorites (“Od Yishama,” “Ose Shalom,” and “Die Goldene Chasene”) to an original by the New Klezmer Trio, “Thermoglyphics,” reimagined as a feat of traditional Eastern European android folk music. And of course it wouldn’t be a Jewish festivity without “Hava Nagila,” heard here moving back and forth between heavy synthesis and a piano/guitar performance.

As the project was nearing completion, I got in touch with a wise friend, one who knows far more Yiddish than I do—which is to say, he knows more than just words involving disappointment, food, bodily functions, and relatives. I asked my friend, “How would you say ‘remix’ in Yiddish?” Being wise, he thought better than to come up with a new word; he thought better than to reply with some snazzy neologism, some antiquated-sounding yet entirely newly created term, some ersatz steampunk Yiddish.

Instead, he sent me a steady stream of short phrases, each an attempt to probe, in Yiddish, what a remix is at its heart. The best of his probings, “anander mol, anander veig,” became the title of this set. It means, in a literal translation, “another time, another way”—old ways, reconsidered; old modes, remodeled; old music, remade.

“Sivivon Sov Sov Sov”
Remix by: Paula Daunt (Berlin, Germany)
Original by: Alicia Jo Rabins

LX(RMX) / LISBON REMIXED – Sounds of the city reconstructed by 8 (or 16?) musicians inspired by Álvaro de Campos, a heteronym of Fernando Pessoa.

Featuring music by Steve Roden (aka In be tween noise), Pedro Tudela (akaJohnny Days), Robin Rimbaud (aka Scanner), Kate Carr (aka The Frigatebird), Shawn Kelly (aka Y?Arcka), Marielle V. Jakobsons (akadarwinsbitch), Paula Daunt (aka Agnosie), and João Ricardo (aka OCP), all working from a shared set of sounds collected and constructed by Elvis Veiguinha. Veiguinha’s field recordings originally served as the score for an installation of photos of modern urban Lisbon by Jorge Colombo.

Heteronyms Reconsidered

Unlike Walt Whitman, Fernando Pessoa may not have contained multitudes, but he had a tidy set of alter-egos. He wrote under a variety of names, each with a unique biography and aesthetic. These alter-egos are referred to as “heteronyms,” and among them was Álvaro de Campos, whose poetry inspired Jorge Colombo’s photography exhibit, Lisbon Revisited, which in turn inspired this compilation album.

Heteronyms—in the form of pseudonyms and monikers—are commonplace in electronically manipulated music. Matters of identity are routinely amplified and distorted by various factors: by the semi-anonymity inherent in online communities, by the rampant splintering of genre taxonomy, by the manner in which authorship is complicated by reliance on third-party (and often emerging) technology, by the prevalence of sampling and remixing.

In tribute to Pessoa and Campos, eight electronic musicians were commissioned to explore the sounds of the city of Lisbon, as well as the creative opportunity inherent in the concept of the heteronym. The eight musicians and their eight adopted heteronyms each took a single shared sound source and created from it sixteen new audio works. The shared sound source is an ambient soundtrack of field recordings of urban Lisbon created by Elvis Veiguinha for the installation exhibit of Colombo’s photographs. This project gave each participating musician the opportunity to explore not only the sounds of the city, but also their own internalized multiple viewpoints.

Hometown Revisited

In January 2009—just a few weeks before I started finger-painting NYC on an iPhone—my exhibition Lisbon Revisited opened at Casa Fernando Pessoa, a museum in Lisbon, Portugal. Based on the early 20th century poems by Portuguese poet Pessoa (writing under the name Álvaro de Campos), the show consisted of Lisbon photographs of mine in which I tried to forget all personal associations and memories of my hometown, focusing instead (like Pessoa/Campos, a fervent futurist who worshipped the splendors of Progress) on the most contemporary, most technological, most globalized aspects of my hometown. I shot today’s Lisbon like Campos would have, were he not a fictional poet stuck in he 1920s.

The exhibition’s soundtrack was created by Elvis Veiguinha, a Portuguese sound artist, music producer, and filmmaker, who used his recordings of Lisbon’s aural atmosphere. Meanwhile, in San Francisco, Disquiet’s Marc Weidenbaum has been forever perceiving Pessoa as a 21st century artist who happens to be have been dead since 1935. Veiguinha’s soundtrack became the natural link to revisit Pessoa’s Lisbon through the more recent vocabulary of remixing.
