This is a piece from the 2nd Masada Songbook of John Zorn. The goal of the Masada project is to take Jewish music to te 21st century (like jazz has evolved from Dixieland to FreeJazz).
So, this is some Jewish - Avant-Garde!
The mucic is composed by John Zorn, but I arranged it and performed it.
It is a really explosive, energetic, "noisy", track!
Here's the plan of the piece:
-Theme x2 - Total Noise - Spaced-out sounds - Total Noise - Scratching the strings - syncopated rythms - Messiaen_like melody - Monorhythmic duo in the high-pitch - more intense and more complex arhytmics - + the basses from the theme - High-pitch freak_out - + intense basses - more violent - STOP! - Pizzicato inside the piano - Space-out sounds - Scratching harmony board + E! - Total Noise - Theme
Each section is quite easy to locate. Try to follow it is fun! So the performance is made by me on a Steinway grand piano. I used a metal pen to do the space-out sounds. I know that it is weird, but accept it for what it is : an explosive track - intense from the start to the end (however there's some quiet part.
This is not the definitive version! I'm working with a friend and we are doing it Piano + electroacoustics. It will be really clean and really really better. This is a pretaste.
I failed at the very end.. well... shit happens!
PM me if you want to hear the official versions by John Zorn (String Trio, or Jazz ensemble)
