If a sun-bleached, dust-covered reel of audio tape was found among the ancient scrolls in the Qumran caves, the recordings it held might sound much like Lahet Kherev. This experimental, ambient project draws inspiration from the many unusual sounds described in scripture (Gen. 3:8, Ezekiel 3:13 & 43:2, Acts 2:2, Rev. 6:1). Equally inspiring are those sounds not described - some long since forgotten, others to be heard again at a future time. The imagined crackle and hum of the flaming sword (from which Lahet Kherev derives its name) guarding the Tree of Life in Gan Eden, for example, or the shimmering melody Ya'akov may have heard emanating from that mysterious 'ladder', and even the noise of the whirlwind that carried Eliyahu skyward are all given voice, and become instruments themselves, submerged in layered, harmonic fields. If the scenes described on the sacred scrolls of Tanakh could somehow be played, how would they sound?
The music of Lahet Kherev is meant to add an audible dimension to those miraculous events that happened so long ago; to bring to mind the otherworldly dreams of the prophets, the rumble of a tombstone rolled away, and the approaching roar of a brilliant, descending city.
