John Zorn's 4th volume of ritualistic organ improvisations, this recital was recorded at midnight on the eve of Halloween on St. Bart's organ, the largest in New York City, a massive sound of "contrasts, colors, bells, drones, counterpoint and simultaneity".
The Hermetic Organ Vol. 4 - ST. Barts, NYC
Released in: USA
"Drawing upon traditions as varied as Messiaen, Xenakis, Ligeti, Bach, Tournemire, Ives, Korla Pandit and The Phantom of the Opera, Zorn's organ improvisations are transcendent, inspiring, ecstatic experiences, offering a direct line to the workings of his rich compositional imagination. Recorded at midnight on the eve of Halloween on the largest organ in New York City, Zorn approaches this performance as ritual, creating a mysterious mood of contrasts, colors, bells, drones, counterpoint and simultaneity. This fourth volume documenting Zorn's legendary organ recitals presents organ improvisation at its most surprising, extreme and sublime."-Tzadik
