This semester’s Music Project focuses on the music of New York composer, improviser and saxophonist John Zorn (1953-).

Students will be performing Zorn’s best-known ‘game piece’ Cobra (1984) in PATS Studio 1 on May 16th and 17th. Cobra consists of a set of cue cards, rules and prompts that direct the players to improvise within certain parameters. Because there is no traditional musical notation and the players improvise, the indeterminacy of the piece allows it to sound radically different from performance to performance.
