A beautifully packaged work performed by Sylvie Courvoisier, Iku Mori, Laurie Anderson, Jennifer Choi, Carol Emanuel & Shayna Dunkelman in Zorn's tribute to women in the Arts.

Zorn, John

Zorn, John: Femina (Tzadik)
Label: Tzadik    
Released in: USA    

"Structured as a colorful tribute to women in the arts, Femina is a triumphant return to the file card technique that has produced some of Zorn's most shockingly original compositions. Much like an aural film, the music jumps from scene to scene with breathtaking precision, following its own peculiar logic. Hildegard von Bingen, Meredith Monk, Simone de Beauvoir, Frida Kahlo, Madame Blavatsky, Isadora Duncan, Hélène Cixous, Gertrude Stein, Abe Sada, Sylvia Plath, Louise Bourgeois, Margaret Mead, Loie Fuller, Dorothy Parker, Yoko Ono and the moon goddess En Hedu'Anna are just a few of the figures who are referenced, reflected and summoned in this soulful and exhilarating tribute to some of the greatest hearts and minds that ever lived. Featuring an all-woman band of some of the downtown scene's most creative and talented musicians, Femina is one of Zorn's deepest and most profoundly beautiful creations. Unique packaging contains artwork and a booklet of images by Kiki Smith, one of the world's greatest and most important art visionaries."-Tzadik

Includes a 52 page booklet of images by Kiki Smith.
