Review by Anthony H.
PROG REVIEWER
2 stars John Zorn: Locus Solus [1983]

Rating: 3/10

Locus Solus is yet another cacophonous collection of improvisatory experimentation from Zorn's early days. As with many other albums from this period in his career, it's difficult to translate the music into linguistic descriptions. This isn't because the music is particularly powerful and transcendental; rather, it's because it is rather unmusical. Zorn has little concern for even the most basic of musical conventions. Instead, he produces insane improvisatory collections of noise that defy description. I'm not a particularly big fan of the albums he creates in this manner, and this one is no exception. However, Locus Solus hints at the maturity that Zorn would later develop as a musician, composer, and improviser.

If the first half was all I had to go on, this album would receive an automatic one-star. This section of the album consists almost entirely of quiet white noise with off-putting spoken-word narration - that's it. It's entirely useless. However, the second half brings a few somewhat interesting musical ideas to the table. Zorn's interest in hardcore music and grindcore begin to emerge here. This interest would later flourish with Naked City, but some prototypical examples of jazzcore can still be found on a few of these improvisations. For the most part, though, this is an underdeveloped and generally uninteresting avant-garde album. Everything here would be done infinitely better later. Locus Solus isn't totally wretched, but it's undoubtedly skippable.

Locus Solus is a nice example of Zorn's early musical anarchy. Scratching sounds, Saxophone distinctive noises, random tribal drums, non-musical structu ... (read more)
