The organizers of Kaddish in Two Part Harmony, describe their blog project as follows:
The Academic and the Musician. The academic immerses in Kaddish with thoughts of thinking rather than feeling—the emotions being too raw. The musician spends her time in making us feel, whether we want to or not. And making the music of kaddish. Making music kadosh. A flurry of emails ensue between the two. They blog. Their blogs lock horns, as do the writers themselves. They try to live the life they are given with now a new ingredient. A commitment to a year-long project has begun: a kaddish in two-part harmony.
The cast of characters:
the musician who must play and record “Kaddish” every day for a year and a day
the listener/s who will hear it each day, for a year and a day
the pair — academic and musician — each day, in kaddish conversation
