ABRAXAS - Psychomagia
Aram Bajakian (guitar) Eyal Maoz (guitar) Shanir Ezra Blumenkranz (electric bass) Kenny Grohowski (drums)
Psychomagia is a complex new suite of music written expressly for ABRAXAS by Downtown alchemist John Zorn. Drawing inspiration from the magical writings of Giordano Bruno and Alejandro Jodorowski and others, Zorn has written a bold collection of compositions that challenge the musicians to the breaking point. With a program ranging from some of the most intense ritualistic sounds you are likely to hear to tender minimalistic odes, this is a surprising new volume in Zorn’s mystic series that matches the intensity and power of Moonchild, PainKiller and Naked City. MAJORI FORSAN CUM TIMORE SENTENTIAM IN ME FERTIS QUAM EGO ACCIPIAM—your fear in pronouncing this sentence over me is probably greater than mine who is receiving it.
