Marc Weidenbaum explains the art of the remix and the creation of Anander Mol, Anander Veig

Print Email

Marc Weidenbaum, the founder of Disquiet, a blog about sound art and electronic and ambient music, is an expert in the art of the remix: taking a piece of already recorded music and reworking it into something both reminiscent of the original and also entirely new. For Hanukkah, he picked eight songs—some, like “Maoz Tzur,” holiday favorites, others, like “Die Goldene Chasene,” familiar from Jewish celebrations—which he then handed off to innovative producers around the world to reinvent. The result is a hypnotic album that invokes everything from children’s music to klezmer to trance. It’s called Anander Mol, Anander Veig (Another Time, Another Way) and it’s downloadable—along with liner notes and cover art—here.

Vox Tablet host Sara Ivry spoke to Weidenbaum about some of the album’s tracks, about making remixes, and about how he, a non-musician, got into the remixing business in the first place. [Running time: 14:15.]

Weidenbaum also commissioned remixes of the Vox Tablet theme song, originally composed by Jewlia Eisenberg and performed by Red Pocket. You can listen to several versions here:

Tablet is committed to bringing you the best, smartest, most enlightening and entertaining reporting and writing on Jewish life, all free of charge. We take pride in our community of readers, and are thrilled that you choose to engage with us in a way that is both thoughtful and thought-provoking. But the Internet, for all of its wonders, poses challenges to civilized and constructive discussion, allowing vocal—and, often, anonymous—minorities to drag it down with invective (and worse). Starting today, then, we are asking people who'd like to post comments on the site to pay a nominal fee—less a paywall than a gesture of your own commitment to the cause of great conversation. All proceeds go to helping us bring you the ambitious journalism that brought you here in the first place.

Readers can still interact with us free of charge via Facebook, Twitter, and our other social media channels, or write to us at Each week, we’ll select the best letters and publish them in a new letters to the editor feature on the Scroll.

We hope this new largely symbolic measure will help us create a more pleasant and cultivated environment for all of our readers, and, as always, we thank you deeply for your support.

David Srour says:

I wish you posted the originals as well as the remix…. any chance that post is coming?

David Srour says:

I wish these were downloadable MP3…its flash.
Anyway. I love VOX Tablet!

Hi David,

Throughout Hanukkah, we’re going to post one or two of the individual songs on the Tablet’s blog, The Scroll, and there you’ll find the original and remix.

And the remixes are available as downloadable mp3s in this article – follow instructions and click on song titles accordingly.

If you’re wanting to download the Vox Tablet theme song remixes, unfortunately those aren’t available here for download.

Thanks for listening!
Julie Subrin
