John Zorn - From Silence to Sorcery (2007)


* Just released this week...Enjoy!

Three distinctive instrumental works touching upon themes of magic and mysticism. Goetia are spells and incantations for summoning demonic spirits and this colorful set of variations for solo violin draws upon the ancient alliance between the violin and the devil. Gris-Gris is a virtuosic work for thirteen tuned drums inspired by the music of Korean Shamanism, Haitian Voodoo and a scene from Howard Hawks’ classic film To Have and Have Not. It receives a spectacular performance by one of the world’s leading avant-garde percussionists—William Winant . Completing the program is one of Zorn’s most personal and elusive ensemble pieces. Scored for clavichord, three muted strings and percussion, Shibboleth is a stunning tribute to the enigmatic Jewish poet Paul Celan.

Jennifer Choi: Violin
Brad Lubman: Conductor
Lois Martin: Viola
Fred Sherry: Cello
William Winant: Drums, Percussion
Steve Drury: Clavichord

The person who left the gigantic comment about conspiracy theories and shit above is officially a huge douche bag who should kill themselves in the most slow, painful way possible. Perhaps getting slowly torn apart by sewer rates while getting their eyes gouged out by a wicked midget would be a fitting way for them to go.
