Dither / John Zorn - John Zorn's Olympiad - Volume 1: Dither Plays Zorn

SKU TZ 8327
"In late ’70s and early ’80s Zorn presented yearly retrospectives of his game pieces at various Downtown venues. He called these events his Olympiads. This long awaited CD presents three of his classic pre-Cobra game pieces in multiple versions by the fab- ulous Brooklyn-based guitar quartet Dither. Here you will find the building blocks of Zorn’s trademark musical language—virtuosic extended techniques, surprising con- trasts, fast group interaction and razor sharp changes. Featuring the first recording of Zorn’s legendary compositions Fencing and Curling these fabulous realizations will keep you on the edge of your seat from first note to last!"
