Kol HaTorr Rajmil Fischman

For see, autumn is past,
the rains are over and gone.
The flowers appear on the earth.
The season of glad songs has come,
the voice of the turtledove is heard in our land.

Song of Solomon, Ch. 2, 11-12

Kol HaTorr — the voice of Torr (the turtledove) — celebrates the arrival of our son, presenting a subjective image of his budding personality and cheerful disposition. The sounds in the piece originate from recordings made when he was two and six months old. The generation of the different types of sonic material and their treatment and interaction are purposefully intuitive. The structure is based on a hierarchy resulting from experiments carried out in other works, which are particularly concerned with derivation of musical structure and generation of material from the solutions of differential equations.

Kol HaTorr is dedicated, with love, to Torr Fischman.
