Composed between 1976-8 and now studied by guitarists the world over, The Book of Heads is one of Zorn’s most popular and oft-performed compositions. Utilizing a hermetic language of sounds inspired by contemporary classical techniques, the idiosyncratic guitar languages of free improvisation, cartoons, film noir, world music, philosophy and more, they receive a virtuosic reading by James Moore, founding member of the Dither guitar quartet.
