Review by snobb
SPECIAL COLLABORATOR Honorary Collaborator
4 stars 35 minutes long John Zorn's minimalistic avant-garde release. Just four compositions, based on neo-classic minimalism, some characteristic "movie music", few touches of jazz and few more electronic explosions you usually expects from Ikue Mori participating.

Music is quite liquid, without special structure or rhythm. But usual Zorn's melodies and sensibility both are presented, so generally it is pleasant listening (for prepared listener). Very short for modern standards album is filled with ideas, so it is concentrated listening. It could be quite accessible even for newcomers (interested in Zorn's neo-classic avant-garde, not in much more accessible Masadas or soundtracks series).

One of strong Zorn's album in avant-garde field.

PROG REVIEWER
3 stars John Zorn: Femina [2009]

Rating: 5/10

John Zorn dedicated most of 2009 to melodic music; Alhambra Love Songs and O'o are two of the most accessible albums he has ever released. However, any Zorn fan knows that the man would never go an entire year without releasing an album full of avant-garde insanity. Thus, we have Femina. Tzadik describes this album as a "colorful tribute to women in the Arts." This is a rather overarching and grandiose musical purpose, but Zorn is no stranger to pomposity. The all-female band features Zorn veterans such as violinist Jennifer Choi and electronic noisemaker Ikue Mori, and there are some new names as well.

Musically, this 35-minute composition is a combination of quiet contemporary classical and noisy electronic avant-garde. Like many of Zorn's other middle-of-the-road albums, there are excellent moments and dull moments to be found throughout the course of this piece. Schizophrenic shifts in sound occur frequently here; soft piano motifs suddenly give way to brutal dissonant electronic madness. This is a common Zorn compositional tactic that I find to be rather immature. Cohesion is thrown out the window is favor of needless experimental lunacy. Granted: there are some excellent musical ideas at play here. However, I know that there's a serious problem when I detect filler on an album that is only 35 minutes long.

4 stars My first meeting with Zorn's music was when I first listen to the successful Naked city Album and i was fascinated by his amazing ability to do so complicate music with metallic sound . for me ( and for many others for sure ) he is one of the pioneers in the avant garde and the Jazz realm . ...

4 stars If one is interested in dipping their toes into the pool of John Zorn's more avant music, this would be a good place to start. At times boisterous and rowdy and at other times soothingly beautiful, Feminia encompasses all that's great about John Zorn the Composer. There is a good mix of the style ... (read more)
