40 people (6 – 70 years old) from a Jewish Renewal Community in Westchester, New York came together to say “I’m Possible”! The objective of the Human Sound session was to bring the younger and older generations together through the exploration of the festival of Hanukkah and the creation of music.
The theme of the night was “I’m possible” – stories were told about overcoming seemingly impossible adversity – a key theme of Hanukkah; experiences where the impossible could become I’m/possible!
The stories told inspired the sound making: For exmaple the session was started by forming a circle and moving around the circle as one. The sound generated from this circle dance was recorded and formed the beat of the song. We then sang and laughed and danced the song together.
