About the album
Composed, recorded and originally released in Japan in 1992, Elegy is one of Zorn's most important "file-card" compositions. Drawing inspiration from the writings of Jean Genet, it creates a mysterious musical world of erotic perversion, blending rock, classical, improvisation and more. Featuring some of San Francisco’s most interesting musicians, including Mike Patton (Faith No More, Fantômas), Trey Spruance (Mr. Bungle, Secret Chiefs 3), David Slusser (George Lucas, David Lynch, Pixar) and William Winant (John Cage, Lou Harrison, Thurston Moore)—now all long time Zorn alumni—Elegy is a cinematic masterpiece. Back in print after a year in limbo, this new digipack edition includes an expanded booklet beautifully redesigned by Chippy, filled with photos, testimonies and remembrances by the musicians.
