Arcana III: Musicians On Music
Edited by John Zorn. "The writings in the continuing Arcana series provide direct connections to the inner sanctums of some of the most extraordinary musical thinkers of our time. Technical, philosophical and mystical in nature, these essays reach out to the listener to illuminate the creative processes and hidden stratagem of a music (and a community) largely misjudged and unappreciated by mainstream culture. Arcana provides welcome tools for digging into the underground and can lead the creative mind toward an exciting world of possibilities for artists, musicians, musical theorists and curious listeners alike."
