Zorn, John: Filmworks III: 1990-1995 (Tzadik)
Label: Tzadik    
Released in: USA    

From the fragmented cut-ups of Zorn's long-form compositions and the short intense blasts of Naked City's Torture Garden, Zorn forged a name for himself as a musical miniaturist - Filmworks III contains 25 cues commissioned by Portland's vanguard advertising agency Weidman & Kennedy for 15-to-60 second TV commercials directed by, among others, Godard, Cronenberg, Sven Nykquist, and Industrial Light & Magic.
This star-studded spectacular includes the first recordings by the band that would later become Masada, a bizarre Zorn/Ribot duo, and nine rediscovered demo tracks for Zorn's rara avis: the soundtrack to the Japanese cartoon Cynical Hysterie Hour. However, the coup de gr‰ce is a series of cues commissioned by Portland's vanguard advertising agency Weiden & Kennedy for TV commercials directed by, among others, Godard, Cronenberg and Sven Nykvist.
