Music as meta-memory: In 2015, when he was the artist-in-residence at Warsaw’s POLIN Museum, the internationally renowned percussionist and composer Lukas Ligeti created a unique document in words and sounds that is being presented on this disc. The history of Polish Jews, which is the POLIN museum’s mission to transport and convey, led Lukas Ligeti to contemplate his own (Hungarian-) Jewish background. He conducted numerous interviews with people between the ages of 20 and 98 to talk to them about Jewish life in Warsaw. All interview partners were also asked to sing songs. By way of a precise musical notation, these memories were fed to musicians via headphones in the form of speech, rhythm, and melodies. Those, in turn, were asked to respond intuitively to what they heard and continue the conversation by their, musical means. The result is a touching composition situated somewhere between performance art and concert.
