Editor's info:
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. Arcana is a remarkable book - challenging and original - essential for composers, musicians, theorists and fans alike.

Arcana is a vibrant testimony to the continuing vitality of new music. These exciting young composers are as idiosyncratic and eloquent with words as they are with music.

-Meredith Monk composer/singer

Arcana, edited by John Zorn, is filled with writings by musicians from all over the musical map. Interested in the sampling, deconstruction and reconstruction of pop hooks? The historical sociobiology of the downtown music scene? An American's reaction to the study of Gagaku? Extended contrabass techniques? A savvy take on ear plugs, amplifier distortion and pain? This is the book you've been looking for.

-Steve Reich composer/performer
