Peter Garland,the man of the Desert, is always interesting to read, another who has the guts of throwing the political question into the mix. This combination of insight, theoretical arguments, pretentiousness, and humor make Arcana a representative cross-section of the scene it sets out to define.

Whether it is to look at Fred Friths notes on composing and playing great fun for Frithophiles deciphering the music involved or the fingering techniques of Bill Frissel this is a book that inspires the act of making music. Well not in this best of all possible Worlds.

For the most part musicians do not like to write about their work. I would call the experience of zor these essays a re-education; by giving these eclectic individuals an opportunity to elucidate what music means to them, John Zorn has provided us with a link to the unknown, the juices that make musicians create. This is a what if book, a glimpse rather than a map.
