Front Cover
John Zorn
Granary Books, 2000 - Music - 379 pages
Cultural Writing. Music. Through manifestos, scores, interviews, notes and critical papers, contributors to this in-depth anthology address composing, playing, improvising, teaching, and thinking in and through music. Rather than attempting to distill or define musician's work, ARCANA illuminates it with personal vision and experience. "A remarkable book. Challenging and original. ARCANA is a vibrant testimony to the continuing vitality of new music. These exciting young composers are as idiosyncratic and eloquent with words as they are with music" -- Meredith Monk, composer/singer.
