SONG PROJECT
To celebrate his 60th birthday Zorn has asked some of his favorite lyricists (including Mike Patton, Jesse Harris, Sean Lennon and Laurie Anderson) to write words to selected tunes from his catalog. Performed by an all star ensemble of long time Zorn associates and sung by Mike Patton and Jesse Harris, the program includes music he has written for films and for some of his most popular bands - from naked city, masada and the dreamers to moonchild, nova express and more! Interspersed
with some smashing instrumentals, this is very special retrospective program featuring some of his most lyrical and enduring compositions of the past 30 years!

SET II
ILLUMINATIONS
A wild piece for piano inspired by the radical 19th century French poet Arthur Rimbaud, whose journey to become a true visionary through "total derangement of the senses" led him to create some of the most personal and intense literature in human history. Performed as a trio with an improvising / free jazz rhythm section of bass and drums.

setting).

THE ALCHEMIST for string quartet

DAVID FULMER - viola
JAY CAMPBELL - cello

The Alchemist, a true and faithful chronicling of the esoteric spiritual conferences and concomitant hermetic actions conducted by Her Majesty's Alchemist Dr. John Dee and
one Edward Kelley invoking the Nine Hierarchies of Angelic Orders to visible appearance, circa 1587 (2011) • duration: 20'
A trip through an Alchemist's laboratory. A seance invoking angelic orders. Virtuosic lyricism, numerology, prayers, canons, contrapuntal complexity, alchemical procedures (distillation, calcination, crystallization, sublimation, purification, rotation)
and the ghost of a fugue.

SET III
MOONCHILD ”TEMPLARS”In Sacred Blood
Over a year in the making, the 6th CD in the Moonchild legacy is a testament-tribute to the Poor Fellow-Soldiers of Christ and the Temple of Solomon, the legendary crusading Warrior-Monks whose 200-year rise to power ended abruptly in 1307 under
accusations of heresy. With lyrics opening a new world of possibilities, the music exudes a powerful emotional intensity. Patton's versatility is at its peak, and he sings everything from Gregorian Chants and atonal melodies to hardcore screams and
passionate whispers. The evocative organ of John Medeski adds a deeply religious tone to the drama, and the Dunn-Baron rhythm section is at its raging best!
