Preface by John Zorn

Press: comments by Steve Reich and Meridith Monk

Answering a need for critical attention towards experimental and avant-garde music, Arcana is a ground-breaking work -- as far-ranging and dynamic as the current generation of musicians. Through manifestoes, scores, interviews, notes and critical papers, performer/composers address composing, playing, improvising, teaching, and thinking in and through music. Rather than an attempt to distill or define musicians' work, Arcana illuminates with personal vision and experience.
