Album Notes

Smells Like Teen Spirits is one of the greatest rock songs that has ever been written. Several great musicians have created cover versions for this song; I tried to do something new.

First of all, I turned the 4/4 metre of the melody into 6/8. In addition to Nirvana's part, I wrote a new line inspired by the harmonies and tonality of Israeli folk music. These two subjects differ in length, so that when played together the melody falls in different places each cycle, thereby creating an evolving polyphony throughout the piece. In the arrangment I chose to use both western and eastern musical instruments, blending together to form a new sound for this epic rock anthem.
