In Alphabet of Wrongdoing, Snowblink’s Daniela Gesun dheit reimagines ceremonial Jewish prayers and blessings encircling themes of reckoning, forgiveness, mortality, striving, and atonement. The texts and melodies are traditional and ancient; the context and arrangements are modern, impressionistic, and subversive. Both the album and the performance investigate communal gestures of forgiveness — attempts to ”Restore dignity to existence through music…” (poet Alan Felsenthal) . In her “ethereal voice” (The Globe and Mail) Gesundheit asks: Can we transmute a world’s weight of unforgivable acts, an Alphabet of Wrongdoing?
