WHAT IS IT ABOUT?

James Moore offers an encore performance of The Book of Heads by John Zorn: a beautiful, playful, and literally explosive evening of solo guitar music. Written for Eugene Chadbourne in 1978, The Book of Heads is a collection of 35 short etudes which utilize an arsenal of acoustic and electronic techniques involving balloons, children's toys and common household items. Moore offers a new interpretation of the pieces developed in collaboration with the composer. Time Out New York calls him a "local electric guitar hero" and describes The Book of Heads as "one of the toothiest works from the downtown-music canon … a compendium of virtually impossible solo guitar pieces that showcases fractious virtuosity and nimble reflexes." The San Diego Reader describes "A knockout success … Like Muddy Waters having a seizure … Tonality was generally abused like a CEO at an S&M Convention." Moore is currently working with filmmaker Stephen Taylor to create a DVD album and documentary of the project for upcoming release on Tzadik Records.
