Boomkat Product Review:
Being a pioneer of all things experimental, it is with great excitement that we tore this CD out of its tightly shrink-wrapped package when it turned up here last week. Featuring 4 very different pieces recorded during march 2001, ‘...Hermetic Theatre’ features John Zorn’s first ever compositions written for and recorded entirely with electronic devices and instruments – largely invented and pieced together by Zorn himself. ‘American Magus’ is his first ever purely electronic composition, and is dedicated to underground innovator Harry Smith. ‘Beuysblock’ is a bizarre meditation on the work of conceptual artist Joseph Beuys, and is scored for piano, string orchestra, and an incredible array of homemade sound devices, all played by zorn himself. Also included is the mindbending sonic hieroglyphs of ‘Codebreaker’, zorn’s first piece of computer music. An essential collection of underground dialogues from a true creative genius. Recommended.
