Zorn Angelus Novus
Zorn For Your Eyes Only
We mark the 60th birthday of John Zorn, the all-round musician from New York and classic of musical counterculture. Zorn is one of the rare creative minds who have succeeded in bridging the chasm between various musical genres. For Your Eyes Only is a frenzied and sarcastic collage piece, in which snippets from all kinds of music - be it classical, klezmer, hardcore punk, cartoon or avantgarde - clash against each other at a maniac speed such as particles do in an atom smasher. But Zorn is also a composer of meditation and mystery, as Angelus novus reveals.
